Tenants at Jem mall were eager to get back to business even before the official opening time at 10am this morning.

Some tenants including supermarket FairPrice and coffee chain Starbucks were already in the full-swing of business.

The mall reopened on Wednesday, exactly two weeks after a false ceiling on its first floor collapsed.

Other tenants including departmental store Robinsons, clothing store Fossil, and restaurants Marche and Kuriya were busying themselves getting ready to open. Tenants were seen cleaning glass panes and starting on food prep.

The Jurong East mall had announced on its Facebook page earlier this week that after safety checks it was reopening for business on Wednesday.
