i went on opening night private sale. It's 6 storey high. Believe it's larger than centrepoint robs. Need to revisit cos the children's dept wasn't open that night. it's got some cult brands we can't get elsewhere. my DH felt it's abt the same as Tangs, esp the basement household section. I feel the beauty section is not comparable to Tangs.

Largest Beauty Hall:
1st - Tangs Orchard
2nd - Isetan Scotts
3rd - Tangs Vivo
Takashimaya ranking has dropped over the past 2 years. Robinson is never in the top 3, in terms of sales volume. Tangs Orchard has the largest number of beauty brands. To shop for beauty products and frangrances, Tangs Orchard is the right place to go. Basically, all the top and key brands are there.

Not only the usual commercial brands like Nars and Laura Mercier, Tangs Orchard has "Escentials" which carries many fragrances/bath like Annick Goutal, Diptyque, Serge Lutens, L'Artisans, Creed...

Robs Orchard is the only place in SG that sells British cosmetic Illamasqua and Atkinsons fragrances which I tested on opening night...was too crowded, so didn't buy anything.

Parking at Heeren - lots of construction sites nearby. quite a pain to get to the backlane from Orchard Rd. B3 not opened that nite. We valet parked instead.
