Final hours of Suan Lum
Or should the title be “Power to the people…”
Tonight sees the Court imposed order for all stall-holders to remove their stock and selves from the Suan Lum location and cease trading. The problem is that those traders are standing firm and saying they won’t budge, in what could be the start of a fight between traders and the Crown Property Bureau.
I personally love Suan Lum, at least you get to purchase goods that haven’t had their prices inflated drastically to pay for 9 staff per customer (a.k.a the Siam Paragon approach to shopping) and it has it’s own culture, something that larger malls will never have.
What are your views on the issue?
