Where are the best places to get Singapore products and specific items that are not for tourists?
Shopping on Orchard Road could be quite expensive but I can guarantee you will find everything. My favourite one is Plaza Singapura. If you are looking for some cheap stuff (some merchants don`t allow trying clothing) than Bugis Junction and the market nearby is the place to check
Mentioned in this answer:
It really depends on what items you want to shop for?
There are quite a few places, depending on what you're looking for! Here are a few suggestions:
1) City Mall in Geylang for cheap clothes
2) IMM Mall in Jurong for outlet shopping
3) Haji Lane in the Bugis area for unique, interesting and better quality items
