Weird mix of shops...
Overall Rating 
 
3.0
Tampines 1 confuses me with their range of shops. I think the creators of this mall was trying to go for the high-class concept but the mix of shops is quite off-putting and makes the whole experience weird. There's an array of shops that you can't step in if you have a certain budget yet there are other shops where the most penny-pinching people shop at, and sadly, where the most poor quality things are sold. I understand if the idea was to create a place where both those who are really tight on cash and those who are "richer" can shop at and I've seen the idea executed pretty awesomely at malls like Bedok Mall, but Tampines 1 just messes it up. Maybe its the really wide array of stores that jump about really abruptly from one end of the spectrum to the other.

Also, the placement of the shops is weird. Some shops that just don't go together are clustered in the same place and just makes me go "what?". Though, I like that they have UrbanWrite, Muji and Coffee Bean. I personally think Tampines 1 should stick to the concept it was going for (the whole "classy" thing) and not stick in shops that deviate too much from that.

Although it is spread over five storeys and one basement, I find that Tampines 1 has nothing much to offer shoppers. I think of it as the 'poorer cousin' to it's more extravagant neighouring malls, Century Square and Tampines Mall.

the only thing going for tampines 1 at the moment is the traffic generated by these 2 malls, plus the fact that it's within walking distance to the MRT and bus interchange. The only shops I visit in Tampines 1 are Daiso and Uniqlo. Other than these, I find nothing of interest in this mall.

Perhaps a revamp is in order for this shopping mall in order to boost flagging sales?

Personally whenever I step into Tampines, I would prefer to spend most of my time at Tampines Mall rather than Tampines One. Yes I concur there are some attractions such as Uniqlo (but lately the outlets can be found almost everywhere hence not that big of a deal), UrbanWrite and Aunty Anne's. Those are the only attractions for me at least.

Food wise.. lets just say Tampines One will never cross my mind if I wish to have a proper meal unless I feel like eating chicken at BBQ Chicken (Korea's No. 1 Chicken Restaurant),

However, I like the high-tech directory. Instead of simple boards, one can find the place they wish to visit by a touch on the screen! Pretty cool huh? It can be pretty troublesome for the less technology savvy though.

The exterior of the building looked nice and chic and it drew my curiosity. Unfortunately, the shopping mall failed to meet my expectations and in the end I felt I wasted my time there. I have been there once and I felt that there wasn't anything interesting as almost all the shops could be found around my residential area.

However, there a strong plus for a food lover like me is that I can find a lot of interesting food shops at basement, like shops which sell Japanese food and bread. A lot of people would queue up including myself. The toilets there are clean but the lights in the cubicles are quite dim, so be careful. The corridor are quite spacious so don’t worry about people blocking your way.

From level 4 onwards the mall is filled with health fitness shops like OSIM, which does not target the genral public and hence the reason why I see only a few people going up the escalator from that level onwards. If you are living at the other side of Singapore, please re consider going this shopping mall as it is just a simple heartland mall wrapped up in a nice package.
