SG RETAIL DOWNTURN: TIME FOR LANDLORDS TO SUFFER

Let me weigh in why I'm estatic and rejoicing over this sorry state of affairs over our downtown retail scene.

Not too long ago, if your wages had been stagnated or lowered, or worse if you had lost your job because your employer couldn't afford to keep you, high chance it was because of rising costs. The key riding cost- retail space rentals. While landlords had a field day raising rentals and laughing their way to the bank, the workers have been on the suffering end of escalating rentals, all vulnerable with no real unions to protect them.

Well, now I'm glad to see the camels back has broken. Businesses find it too expensive to operate here. Business are pulling back. Some even pulling out of Singapore.

Time for landlords to suffer. Time to lower their rentals. After all this is a free market.

BUSINESS HAS BEEN POOR, HELP OUT THIS ELIAS MALL HAIRDRESSER

I went for my usual haircut at Elias Mall this afternoon. The shop is owned by an old couple and the main hairdresser is the husband. While having my haircut, the man received a call on his phone and he spoke in mandarin to the caller. From his response, I can roughly tell that the caller is the landlord and he/she is chasing for rent. The old man kept apologising and explained that business isn't too good recently. He then ended the call and tried not to look affected as he continued with my haircut. But deep down i knew that he's feeling helpless and stressed out.
