SINGAPORE: Several stores at Eastpoint Mall in Simei were forced to call it a day after a power shortage took place at the mall on Friday afternoon.
Some callers to the MediaCorp hotline said that the power trip took place at 4.45pm.
An owner of a hair saloon said that customers were complaining as work came to a stop.
She added that about 10 shops were affected.
A spokesperson from Eastpoint Mall management said an electric circuit fault was discovered by its technician during a routine check in the afternoon at a switch room at the mall.
And as the safety of tenants and shoppers is its first priority, the decision was to discontinue the power supply as a precautionary measure against fire hazard.
The spokesperson said the faulty circuit breaker is currently being repaired and the mall is expected to resume operations on Saturday.
