The 2nd and 3rd floors of Cogon Public Market are now being redeveloped for the entry of 858, a Chinese-owned store selling ready-to-wear items at very low prices.
Actually, clearing of half of the second floor began sometime last week. The exteriors of the upper floors will be covered to look like the one you see at the tarpaulin installed at the site.
Escalators will take shoppers from the ground floor to the upper floors. As shown in the perspective, there will be a major facelift of the 3-storey building. I don’t know if this will push through since only half of the 2nd floor will be utilized by 858.
858 is said to be similar to the more popular 168….lots of bargains.
