The COVID-19 outbreak affected consumer confidence in shopping. Business has definitely taken a hit in the recent virus outbreak. However, there is a sliver lining in events like this, with one being many malls in Singapore over the course of the recent months starting to open up free parking in their malls.

I was surprised that I did not have to pay for almost 3.5 hours of weekday parking at Plaza Singapura, prompt me to create a “COVID-19 Free Parking” list here which I hope prove useful if you are looking out for a compilation.

Notably, Capital malls, Frasers, UOL and Asia malls, to name a few had together put in-place a series of offers to coax shoppers back onto the shopping streets, such as badly affected areas like the Jewel. Do note that each mall despite being from the same management offers differing free timings for weekdays, weekends and Public holidays (PH).
