Heartland Shopping Goes Digital with RetailerLink and ShopperLink

We have some good news if you love online shopping: our HDB malls and shops are going online! We have launched two mobile applications – RetailerLink and ShopperLink – to help heartland retailers evolve with the changing retail landscape, and provide more personalised services to shoppers.

RetailerLink is a one-stop digital platform for HDB retailers to showcase their product offerings to customers. They can list their product and service offerings via the app, and chat with customers directly via the chat message function.

For shoppers, ShopperLink lets you browse offerings at our heartland shops virtually and earn rewards points when you shop. You can also receive the latest updates on mall events, product or service launches and promotions, or chat instantly with your favourite shops via the app. 

We will be trialling the RetailerLink and ShopperLink apps at Oasis Terraces, our first new-generation Neighbourhood Centre in Punggol. Stay tuned for more updates, as we progressively roll out the apps to cover other new-generation Neighbourhood Centres, such as Canberra Plaza and Buangkok Square, and other HDB malls later this year!
