COVID19: Sheng Siong Supermarket "Spoils Market" for NTUC FairPrice

Sheng Siong supermarket is truly impressive. After announcing an additional one month salary for its employees, it went around neighbourhoods silently giving donations at wakes out of kindness. This is setting the bar way too high for competitor NTUC FairPrice supermarket which is already being accused of raising its prices during COVID-19.

SUPERMARKET TURF WAR LEADS ONE TO OFFER FREE LORRY RIDES

The main customers to the supermarket, situated at Toh Guan Road in Jurong East, are migrant workers, according to Ms Mo Mei Lian, 43, owner of the store. She told Lianhe Zaobao since last month their rival reached out to the workers at their dormitory areas. On 23 August, it came to their attention that the new mart distributed flyers just outside workers’ dormitory. On 10 September, they were surprised that their rival was offering free lorry rides for workers to visit their store at Jurong West.

WOMAN FINDS LIVE INSECT PACKED TOGETHER WITH NTUC'S CHICKEN FILLET

A Facebook user complained about finding an insect in her packaged chicken fillet from NTUC. She said the fly was still (packed) alive! "Bought this at NUH Ntuc this morning 6.6.17. There's a fly in it. This chicken fillet was packed yesterday. When I open the pack, the fly was still moving. Ntuc should do a check seriously since there has been cases of insects 'packed together'. I got to throw this pack away for fear of maggots."

HOUSEWIFE AND OTHER OF 5 RESORT TO STEALING MILK POWDERS TO MAKE ENDS MEET

In her mitigation, she had claimed that she committed the offence as the family was in financial difficulties. No mention on what her husband was working as. With 5 children, and the wife herself not in a job, then financial difficulty is not that unexpected. Maybe more can be done to help the family financial wise. Were they even told where to get help? Desperate, with no help on the horizon, is it any wonder that the housewife was forced to commit the crimes that she did?

NTUC FAIRPRICE SEGREGATE THEIR MARKET INTO ATAS AND BUDGET CONSCIOUS

NTUC Fairprice have announced that they will open another six more supermarkets for budget conscious shoppers this year, due the demand for more of such budget groceries. These stores feature a smaller but more affordable range of products, including housebrand products, Every Day Low Price and Yellow Dot items, which comprise about half the product mix in the stores.

Makes you wonder why they can't just carry the cheaper and budget groceries product in all of their NTUC stores. Must be very discriminatory to budget conscious Singaporeans, is it? What is wrong trying to save a few dollars here and there, now that prices everywhere are just getting too high?
