I stepped in and at once, recoiled. Something was not right. Why were the shelves half-empty and what were these boxes doing on the floor?
"Hi, are you renovating?" I found the lady and asked.
"No..." She smiled sadly.
"You are relocating??!! Nooooooooooo!" I was shocked. Where were they going? I started thinking of just how far would I travel for this shop. Choa Chu Kang? Bishan? Yio Chu Kang? Ang Mo Kio?
"No..." She gave me another sad smile.
"Oh. My. Goodness. You're closing down????????????" I could not believe it.
"Curren contract end oredi. Rent too high lah... cannot oredi. What to do?"
"But... but you sell... like... everything!"
She smiled at me and then turned to answer the phone. It was probably another aghast customer calling to check if the horrible news was really true.
As for me, I was stunned. This nameless shop had been my haunt for many many years now. It really was nameless. Even though they gave you a receipt, it only said 'THANK YOU' at the top. Oh wait, it just struck me that maybe that was the name of the shop! THANK YOU! If you don't believe me, check out the picture of their last receipt to me.

And more here:
I had bought the first pair of my amazing bathing gloves from this shop. Following which, I was flooded with orders from relatives and friends (yes, even guys!) and subsequently bought at least 12 more pairs. I had bought my amazing mirror cleaner from this shop. I had bought my amazing facial sponge from this shop. I had bought my amazing four-in-one pedicure set from this shop. I had included this shop as one of the landmark places in the Singapore tour for my parents and in-laws. Every time I'd be early for badminton, I'd pop by the shop and see if they had anything new for me. They always did.
She put the phone down and turned back to me, jolting me out of my thoughts.
"Last two days. Clearance sale. 30% off. Until tomorrow onni. Tomorrow close down oredi." She smiled.
And I was there the next day. On its last day. To celebrate its existence and mourn its closing down.
There wasn't much left to buy; I just roamed around the shop, looking at the half-empty shelves, remembering all the times the shop and its little trinkets had surprised me.
Thank you, 'THANK YOU'.
