When Govt said either WFH or stop work, those fall into the latter category means take leave or pay cut or on no pay leave?
The nicer employers are giving paid leave. But most are forcing unpaid leave.

But why? :?

These are the shops that will stay open “come what may”. If doing WFH, why cannot step out to buy supplies during “lunch break”?

Sometimes, people just don't think things through. I'm fortunate that I happened to do my usual supermarket run early on Fri (thanks to a dental appointment later that day), so I won't need to go for another couple of days, and I will choose my usual time slot of early afternoon. I did have to make a quick shopping trip yesterday - my daughter's only pair of sports shoes broke, and she needed a pair to use over the next few weeks. Since we've been doing partial wfh already, we didn't have anything else we needed.

Nope.

NTUC - Yes, their CEO says, come what may.
Challenger, Best Denki, Harvey Norman - No. They are considered as retail. Can refer to this news report:
Update, Apr 6: An earlier version of this list included Audio House, Best Denki and Japan Home, who had informed us and announced on their respective social media platforms that they would remain open. However, we have since received an update from Enterprise Singapore that these stores will have to be closed from Apr 7 to May 4, and have removed these shops from the list.
Your 五金店, on the other hand, will remain open.

I thought I.T. and electronics (repair and sales) are supposed to remain open.

How about Challenger then?

What if we need to buy printer ink?

Thanks, Floppy. I managed to call Courts hotline and the person said that their stores will still be opened during that period. Hope it's true. Strange though why they do not state clearly in their website.
