I frequent the FairPrice outlet near my home in Kembangan.
Unfortunately, it is very small and, most of the time, I am unable to get all the things I want.
On May 2, I was there at around 9.30am, hoping that it would be well stocked since I was early. To my disappointment, I still could not get papaya or beetroot.
Items also tend to be sold in big packets - for instance, big bunches of bananas, two big cucumbers packaged together, and big packets of tomatoes and ginger.
It would be good if some of these items could be kept loose instead of being pre-packed.
Not only will this minimise plastic use, but it will also be helpful to singles and the elderly who live alone.
