How very ill to be known as.

The description very comically states Wheelock to be an exciting place. How very strange. Wheelock doesn't know excitement even if it's stared right at its face. It is more right to say Wheelock is a classy place.

This mall made close to zero impression on me. All I remember from it is redeeming an iPod from the Epicentre here and even that was a normal experience. There isn't even anything bad to say about this place because this place is basically just a blank ground.

How is there even 7 stories I have no idea, I've only heard and walked the first 2 floors and that's even to deter me from the rest of the building.

Come to Wheelock if you're determined to finish Orchard completely as a tourist, if not, just skip on ahead to ION.

I'm surprised at how Wheelock Place can still manage to stay open with such a minimal offering. I mean, other than the smattering of wellness shops and a chocolate boutique, there's nothing else that it offers shoppers and visitors to Orchard Road. I mean, when I say that the most popular aspect of Wheelock Place is the underpass to ION, that's saying a lot about the place!

As many would probably agree with me, Wheelock Place was in it's prime when Borders was around. Borders offered to Wheelock Plact what nothing else has done so far... A really really good reason to visit the building. It deserves a hip new tenant who can draw the crowds back there. I hope it doesn't fold before that.

I used to love Wheelock Place for the Borders bookstore, but after Borders closed down, I found no reason to visit Wheelock Place anymore. There is barely anything to do there and given the fact that it is located on Orchard Road, you might as well visit nearby shopping malls like Ion Orchard. I think the only reason you will visit Wheelock Place is to shop at Marks and Spencer, but even then it is not like Marks and Spencer cannot be found elsewhere in the Orchard/Somerset area.

I would suggest shoppers or tourists to visit other shopping malls instead, and give Wheelock Place a miss, because really, you will not be missing out on much.
