Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Cafe Closing On 8 Feb At Terminal 3
While we bet that there’s more Hello Kitty merch to come in 2019, Singaporeans will be bidding adios to our beloved Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Cafe on Friday (8 Feb).
Last October, Ms Fiona Chin, the company’s assistant manager for marketing, told The Straits Times that the cafe was closing because the company’s licence and partnership with Sanrio was coming to an end.
If you’ve been harboring hopes that they could reopen, it’s time to face reality. The cafe – located at Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 arrival hall – recently invited customers for a final meal on 23 Jan.
Here’s the post in full:
As we bid farewell to one of the most iconic cafes, let’s take a look at what you can check out before their cafe closes.
