This Ulu Joo Koon Mall Has A Warehouse Club & A Massive Decathlon, Worth A Journey To The West

Things to do at FairPrice Hub


As the saying goes for some people, West is best. If going grocery shopping is your passion, then you’d agree – because tucked away in the industrial area of Joo Koon is FairPrice Hub

This mall is so underrated that it doesn’t even have a store directory. But if you’re planning a visit, don’t worry about going in clueless; we’ve compiled a list of things to do at FairPrice Hub, should you want to head to this mysterious goliath for your next grocery run.


What is Fairprice Hub?

Just as its name suggests, FairPrice Hub is a mall built by the FairPrice Group in Joo Koon in 2015. This 16-storey-high mall spans a total space of 1.3 million sqft, and houses a mega version of an NTUC store called the Warehouse Club, a jumbo-sized Decathlon outlet, and a myriad of dining spots


How to get to FairPrice Hub?


You may be thinking, “this one confirm ulu” – but we’re happy to report that FairPrice Hub is very accessible via public transportation. It’s located right by Exit A of Joo Koon MRT station and is also connected to Joo Koon Bus Interchange. And if you’re driving, there’s a multi-storey carpark with plenty of parking spots. 


Warehouse Club


The “IKEA” of supermarkets


The Warehouse Club reminds us of IKEA. But instead of shelves stacked with DIY furniture, the ones here are chock-full of snacks and drinks instead.

The store started as a members-only wholesale store, much like Cosco or Tesco, with bulk discounts and scaffolding shelves. However, NTUC FairPrice is ceasing memberships from 31st October 2024 as the store will go through a massive revamp, shutting down on 21st March 2024 and reopening as FairPrice Joo Koon in due course. 

You can also stock up on your laundry detergent at discounted prices.

Members can exchange their memberships for a $5 off $50 discount voucher; or a $10/$20 FairPrice Voucher if they paid $10-$20 for their memberships. Visit Warehouse Club’s website for more details.

Even if you’re not a member, you can still access the Warehouse Club store and enjoy their deals that happen on a rotational basis. Some deals spotted here have been $18.50 for a bottle of wine from the Australian company Just Wine (U.P. $28.01) and $15.60 for 10kg of FairPrice brand jasmine fragrant rice (U.P. $16.10).

Walk-In Chiller

You don’t have to be an expert chef to experience walking into a fridge, as you can head down to their walk-in chiller and have the chilly experience sans the Masterchef title. The veggies and fruits here range from bundles of baby kailan ($1.67/each) to watermelons ($6/each).

Decathlon


Megastore with great deals


Whether you’re ready to take on a new fitness regime or looking for Decathlon alternatives to your usual fitness, you can find them at this retail giant’s largest store in the West. 

Aside from the usual quality products and supplies that Decathlon has, this is the only location in the West that offers various services such as tube replacements from $5, restringing of rackets from $3, and safety checks of scooters and skateboards from $40. It’s truly a one-stop shop for all your sporting and exercising needs.

Visit FairPrice Hub the next time you’re in the West


Even if you live in other parts of Singapore, a visit to FairPrice Hub might justify taking the MRT to the West of Singapore. Since Warehouse Club is closing from 21st March 2024, this is also your last chance to go grocery shopping in this IKEA-style supermarket. Once you’re done, pay a visit to other attractions in the area like the Karting Arena Jurong
