SINGAPORE's Funan DigitaLife Mall will close its doors on Thursday night after being operational for 31 years to make way for three years of redevelopment works.
CapitaLand's senior management will host a "thank you" party for some 400 invited guests comprising tenants, loyal shoppers and mall staff at Funan's Main Atrium to celebrate the mall's milestones over the decades as it prepares to start a new chapter.
"As the definitive IT mall over the last three decades, Funan holds a special place in the hearts of Singaporeans," said CapitaLand in a statement.
"The new Funan will strive to be a dynamic mall. . . Technology has always been a big part of Funan and we will build on that legacy, moving from just selling IT products to enriching people's lives with technology," said Wilson Tan, chief executive of CapitaLand Mall Trust Management.
Funan will be open to the public on Thursday from 7am to 11pm for shoppers who want to take photographs and videos of the mall.
