British retail chain Marks & Spencer will be officially shutting their Raffles City outlet on 31 December. In addition, the chain will be giving out discounts of up to 70 per cent and a S$10 voucher, as part of their moving out sales promotions.

“Our last day of operation at Raffles City will be on 31 December 2021. We’d like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude, as we are ever thankful for your kind patronage over the past 35 years,” Marks & Spencer wrote on their Facebook page.

In a response to a query from Yahoo Life SEA, Marks & Spencer will be relocating to another location within the mall. "Marks & Spencer Raffles City store will be closed in December 2021, in conjunction with the mall’s 2022 rejuvenation plan. As a long-term partner of Raffles City, we are relocating to new premises within the mall and details will be shared in due course. In the meantime, Marks & Spencer Raffles City store will be celebrating the year-end festivities with a series of attractive promotions and sales from now till the last day of operation in Raffles City on 31 December 2021."

The Marks & Spencer store at Raffles City opened in 1986 and is owned by Dubai-based company Al-Futtaim. The chain had previously announced the closure of the store in 2020, with the moving out date set on 31 December 2020.

However, according to Straits Times in January 2021, the store reversed its decision as it was “delighted to continue serving customers at this store” because of their “long-term partnership with CapitaLand”.

With the closure of the Raffles City store, there will be 10 other Marks & Spencer stores remaining in Singapore at Wheelock Place, Paragon, Plaza Singapura, Parkway Parade, VivoCity, One Raffles Place, 313@Somerset, Jewel Changi Airport, Waterway Point, and Marina Square.
