Jem tenants anxious for mall to reopen
Concerned about growing losses, some plan to seek compensation
Jem mall will remain shut this weekend, as losses mount for its tenants in the aftermath of last week's ceiling collapse.
This marks the second weekend in a row that it is closed for business.
"Jem will not open this weekend.We are getting closer and will be able to provide you with an opening date very soon," said an update on the mall's Facebook page last night.
The Jurong East mall, which opened in June, has been closed since Sept 19 after a burst water pipe caused part of the first-floor ceiling to collapse the previous night.
LEFT IN LIMBO
I hope that as a responsible landlord, it can claim against insurance and take care of tenants... It is upsetting, we have manpower on stand-by daily wondering if they are going back to work or not.
