From vintage finds at Haji Lane to Orchard Road’s luxury bargains, here are all the shopping areas you should take note of during the Great Singapore Sale (GSS)!
1. ION Orchard
Absolutely no shopping trip to Singapore is complete without a visit to the iconic Orchard Road. And fortunately for us shopaholics, this shopping destination is offering some of the most insane deals this June to July! So if you’re looking for a good deal on that Prada bag you’ve been eyeing, ION Orchard most likely has it – in addition to the other luxury brands, like Gucci and Balenciaga, that’ll be going on sale during this time!
Best of all, with the Global Tax Free Service Counter located just a it’s B3 Concierge Counter and a one stop tax refund service, guests can enjoy a hassle-free and tax-free shopping experience!
2. Paragon Shopping Centre
The Paragon Shopping Centre is every luxury shopper’s stomping ground – especially during the Great Singapore Sale. With SALE signs places outside stores like Marc Jacobs, GUCCI and Coach, you may be swiping that credit card quite frequently throughout this shopping mall.
3. Design Orchard
This up and coming retail space is a great place to start when it comes to shopping local artisanal goods, with over 60 homegrown designers housed under one roof! Look out for brands like Naiise, Onlewo, Ginlee Studio and Gnome & Bow and enjoy up to 70% off quality goods during the Great Singapore Sale!
4. Haji Lane
Dubbed as Singapore’s original “hipster” street, Haji Lane is home to many instagrammable murals, boutiques, cafes, and a buzzing night scene. After you’ve taken a couple of photos against its vibrant graffiti walls, be sure to pop into the shops for some unique vintage finds!
On any other day, the goods offered along this attraction tend to be on the pricey end. However, during the Great Singapore Sale, Haji Lane rides high on our list of vintage shopping spots with artisanal goods that are perfect for souvenirs.
For a shopping experience that covers both your favorite western brands and luxury shops, there’s no better place to visit than VivoCity! During the GSS, you can expect top brands from Gap to Armani to offer their products at unbeatable prices. After your shopping extravaganza, you’ll be able to recuperate over at VivoCity’s food court or amphitheatre, as well.
VivoCity is often referred to as a megamall, thanks to its wide range of shopping and entertainment options. However, with a number of the biggest malls housed in the Philippines, galavanting through VivoCity’s stores will be no feat for us Filipinos!
6. Orchard Central and 313@Somerset
Your favorite western brands are on a major markdown at Orchard Central and 313@Somerset this GSS! It’s time to hoard all those clothes from brands like Topshop and H&M because we can guarantee that these deals can’t get any better. Fancy a snack or supper after a full day of shopping? Drop by the 24-hour Don Don Donki at Orchard Central for some delicious and discounted Japanese meals!
This is also the perfect location to start your mall hopping adventure as both Orchard Central and 313@Somerset are located just by each other!
7. IMM Outlet
If you thought the prices at IMM Outlet mall couldn’t get any cheaper, you thought wrong! Singapore’s largest outlet mall offers up to 80% discounts year round, but during the Great Singapore Sale, all 90+ stores at IMM Outlet add even more discounts, offering customers with some of the best deals in the city!
So in case you need to stock up on workout gear from Under Armour or Adidas, or winter wear from North Face for those upcoming below zero holidays, IMM Outlet is the place to be!
8. Bugis Junction and Bugis Plus
During the Great Singapore Sale, Bugis Street is synonymous to bargains. And if there’s anything us Filipinos love more than shopping, it’s bargain shopping! We definitely think you can spend an entire day just galavanting through Bugis Street’s rows of stalls and its malls like the Bugis Junction and Bugis+. Here, you’ll find discounted prices for local favorite shops such as The Editor’s Market and Sephora.

Visit Funan for all your tech needs! Singapore’s first “offline and online” mall is powered by an ecosystem of sensors, data analytics, and facial recognition technology to offer shoppers various product recommendations. Here, experiential retail is taken to a whole new level, with spaces for customers to test drive new products they’re interested in purchasing, too!
Moreover, you’ll also be able to scout for the best deals on this year’s most sought-after gadgets – and that alone makes the trip worth it!
10. Jewel Changi Airport
Before you jet out of Singapore, we highly recommend spending a couple of hours wandering through the new Jewel Changi Airport.
Home to over 290 retail shops and F&B outlets, Jewel Changi also houses the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, plus the only Pokemon centre outside of Japan with exclusive merchandise! This is also where you can find Nike’s largest outlet in Southeast Asia, where you can customize your own Nike T-shirts in store
