The biggest shopping season in Singapore is here!
And we are very excited since no other nation in the world offers such an event where shoppers are able to get lots of great bargains over a long period of time.
Known to run for nearly 2 months, Singapore’s Mega Sales Event is a place where shopaholics worldwide converge to buy from high-end brands at reduced prices.
The GSS (Great Singapore Sale) is an annual shopping event in Singapore. Although it’s called a sale, the GSS is in truth an event which is organized by Retailers Association in Singapore and co-organized by malls and stores – from online to brick and mortar – to boost the tourism sector of Singapore’s economy.
Why all the hype over a sale?
In 2013, when MasterCard Singapore initiated its Princess Singapore Campaign during which they collaborated with Singapore’s famous bloggers to help promote the initiative, over USD $1 billion was lavished by MasterCard Cardholders alone during that year’s Great Singapore Sale.
So trust me, the hype is fully justified!
Besides, the GSS has evolved into something more than mere sales – it is a well-rounded retail experience which stimulates locals and tourists alike to shop, play, dine, and explore the country. This ensures that everyone takes home a piece of Singapore with them.
When is the Great Singapore Sale 2019?
Since the Great Singapore Sale was initiated 25 years ago it captured the hearts and attention of both local and international shoppers for a period of nearly two months each year.
Two Previous events: June 9th, 2017 to August 13th, 2017 and June 8th, 2018 to August 12th, 2018.
This year though, the Great Singapore Sale is to be revamped.
When it returns on the 21st of June and runs until the 28th of July with this year’s deals and steals, the GSS duration will be reduced from 2 months to 1 month, and it will be expanded beyond its primary focus on discounts.
These changes are designed to restore the events’ image, which experts say has lost some of its appeal in recent years.
Announcing the changes recently, the SRA (Singapore Retailers Association) stated that 2019’s Great Singapore Sale will focus more on the “social and sensory experience”, to showcase the Singapore story via a fusion of entertainment, technology, and art along with retail marketing, food and beverage. They are calling it GSS: Experience Singapore
The SRA further explained that the extended duration for sales had worked well during previous editions to capture a larger base of local and foreign customers.
The Great Singapore Sale, which is now holding its 25th edition, actually started as an event which ran for one month in 1994 and grew rapidly to become the most popular retail event in Singapore, adding on a few more weeks as time went by.
However, ever-changing consumer behavior, increased competition from online retailers and feedback from stakeholders and customers have prompted the SRA to review the length and content of the Great Sale Singapore event.
The main destination for the Great Singapore Sale 2019 is still Orchard Road, since it remains the most popular destination for shopping in Singapore.
Majority of the shopping malls are within close proximity of each other, which makes it easier for shoppers to stroll from one shop to another.
