I popped up to the 5th floor of the Paragon to see if there were any great savings to be had now that the Great Singapore Sale has started. I expected there to be huge SALE banners everywhere with 50% off tags on everything (I was hoping).
In my book, 10% off the retail price is not a great saving considering how much everything is marked up in the first place. So it would have really annoyed me if I had seen any of those banners.
I was happy to see that most shops have up to 50% off, although it is only selected items and never store wide. The clothing stores Guess Kids, Kids 21, Fox Kids, Oshkosh, and Blossom and Friends all have between 30%-50% off selected items. The range of sale items isn't huge, but there are plenty of shops to browse in.
Growing Fun, an excellent educational toy store, has 15% off store wide (barely acceptable) and additional promotions if you are a member. Early Learning Centre has between 30% and 50% off selected items also.
It is quite a good selection of childrens shops here, especially for clothes, and now that Giordano Junior has moved from the third level up to the 5th all the children's shops are in the same area. Their promotion is buy 2 pieces to enjoy 30% discount, storewide.
