Sim Lim Square Singapore overview
The building we now know as Sim Lim Square was originally planned to be both a shopping mall as well as an office building and its initial construction in Singapore began in 1983. However, in 1985, the complex was soon converted into a shopping mall which focuses on retailers which sell electronics and electrical goods.
Sometimes called SLS, Sim Lim Square is a large shopping centre in Singapore which highly specializes in retailers that sell a wide variety of electronic goods and services. Many shops and stores within Sim Lim Square sell products such as phones, computer parts and servicing. Unfortunately over the years, there has been multiple reports of fraud and scam faced by tourists who shopped at Sim Lim Square. It was to the point that even the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China as well as Vietnamese newspapers also published warnings and disclaimers about purchasing electronics goods from Sim Lim Square.
Why do people still go to Sim Lim Square for shopping then? One of the biggest reasons for this is that customers who are price sensitive still prefer shopping there, because the electronics goods there are sometimes sold at cheaper prices and for bigger bargains than the retailers carrying these electronics goods at more modern shopping centres in Singapore.
