You can find all sorts of unbranded and also branded items for prices you can never find on the market!

Buy “Cheap” Blogshop Clothing
One of the most popular things that City Plaza is known for, you can also buy cheap blogshop clothing at City Plaza.
City Plaza is known as a wholesaler for blogshop fashion and used to be the place that local blogshops used to go to buy their stock. However today, with Taobao and other B2B platforms, it’s easy for us to get our own blogshop clothes at wholesale prices, it’s still a fun to venture out to City Plaza with friends to haggle for discounts and buy in bulk. Just like in Bangkok!
Most of these stores are located in the same corner as Refash.
Arnold’s Fried Chicken
Another one of the most popular reasons to visit City Plaza is to visit Arnold’s Fried Chicken, the pioneer halal eatery in Singapore that first opened in City Plaza 30 years ago! And there popularity still remains, with long snaking queues everyday!
People are still raving over their signature spring chicken and people can be seen queuing, no matter the time of day.
