You thought Clarke Quay was the go-to for a night out in the bars and clubs. You’re not wrong, but now you’ve got an excuse to visit during the day too. A new FairPrice Finest at Clarke Quay has just opened which means you can now shop for groceries while in the ‘hood.

The neighbourhood FairPrice supermarkets that are more commonly found provide daily essentials such as groceries and household items. If you see a FairPrice Finest, it means you’ll find a deli section as well as a larger variety of organic products. 

FairPrice Xtra is the one you want to go to for extra items like electronics and clothes, offered at affordable prices. There are also a few 24-hour FairPrice Xpress outlets which are usually much smaller and offer the basic necessities at any time of the day.
