Tips for you
Platinum Mall offers a very wide range of products and you have many selections to choose from. Prices are very cheap with a wholesale mall when you pay more than one or two items. Therefore, the more you buy, the more you have a chance of getting a competitive price. There are also are plenty of options in terms of food. The lanes in Platinum are narrow so this also means that weekends are a brutal time to visit, as foot traffic is slow moving. The best time to hit Platinum is in the morning on a weekday, right after the mall opens at 9 a.m. The drawback is that the retailers are not so friendly and tend to be rude at one point. They have the policy of no-trying, no-exchange and only in wholesale buying. As a result, None of the shops let you try on clothing, which means you have to be extra careful about what you buy. Almost the dresses, pants and shorts are appropriate for women that they are designed to fit women of a slimmer build. Consequently, this place is not suitable for men.
