The One-Stop Shop You'll Want To Take Foreign Friends To

So they can bring home something else besides pandan cake


Combining shopping, art and history, Robinsons’ new Heritage Shop at The Heeren is one spot you should stick on the itinerary when out-of-towners visit - and not just for their benefit.

Located on Level 5, the space sells cool memorabilia and also plays host to an exhibition highlighting the departmental giant’s 156-year-old history. Pictures, documents and artefacts highlight the historic store’s milestones throughout the years.

Go on a trip down memory lane as you discover iconic items like a Raleigh bicycle, the go-to mode of transport in the ’50s. Then before you leave, take home a piece of history with you — shop Robinsons’ Fine Bone China collection featuring their first flagship store at Raffles Place or the kitschy and uniquely Singaporean souvenirs from the National Heritage Board’s Museum Label. Yep, old is gold here.
