Pictures from the new Don Don Donki Clarke Quay Central outlet.
Yup, I have another Don Don Donki post. Before I continue, let me just say I’m not sponsored for these.
If only. I’m also not setting up some sort of fan blog for Donki: I just happened to be at Clarke Quay last evening and since I recently posted some pictures about the Novena outlet, I thought, why not “do” the Clarke Quay outlet too?
And so I popped in. Wormed my way through the crowds, and ended up buying a whole bag of snacks.
Before I end this (very) short post, permit me to highlight that the “Donkis” we’re getting all over the country aren’t exactly the same as the ones in Japan.
Because ours are more of … Japanese food supermarkets.
If you’ve been to the first outlet at Orchard Central when it opened in December 2017, you’d remember a substantial part of it sold garments, novelties, watches, electronics, etc. Months later, that outlet was significantly re-shelved to allow more space for snacks and titbits. All subsequent outlets then focused more on edibles instead of lifestyle products.
Just to be clear, I’m not complaining. I understand the business decision too. Yeah, I get a kick from seeing those quirky lifestyle products but I doubt cosplay Sailor Moon costumes sell that well.
But still, it would be nice if it’s not so much about food. Perhaps I should do my part to encourage other products, by finally buying some of the remaining novelty items still on sale.
