Once upon a time, Mr CK Tang peddled goods from an old cart in the streets of Singapore. An industrious fellow, he parlayed his business into a small department store. A hit from the start, Tangs has grown exponentially over the decades and now competes all the other international mega stores that had moved in. The beauty is that Tang’s is truly Singaporean, and its history is a local legend.

Founded in 1932, Tangs has uniquely outshined as an Asian lifestyle with an international appeal. It carries exclusive and specialised merchandise from cosmetic brands, international fashion labels for branded items such as shoes, accessories, and electronics to home ware.

One could not deny the strong aroma of fragrances as you past by Tangs Beauty Hall located on the first floor. The Scent Bar which features the fragrance retail that offers a wide fragrance collection from Calvin Klein, Bvlgari, Armani etc. It is a one stop source of cosmetic brands. Found on level one, it spoils one with the wide range of choices of cosmetic brands and personalized services. Want a look like out from the Vogue magazine? Ladies, pamper yourself with a full range of glorious cosmetic brands, such as Shu Uemura, Mac makeup, Estee Lauder cosmetics, Stila cosmetics, etc.

With upbeat, hip and cool names Tangs, has labeled their apparel section “The Wardrobe”, “Dressing Room”, “Play Lab”, “The Library”.

My personal favourite, Island Shop. This is a global ethnic lifestyle brand created for the contemporary urbanite who yearns to get close to nature. Island Shop's collection comprises of men's, women's, accessories and kid's merchandise, usually most suitable for the casual look.

For the latest gadgets, get into “Technobay”, the digital lounge from the latest technologies. Shop with your kids at the “Playground” for the latest and extensive range of kids fashion and lifestyle merchandise inspired by the latest adult trends.
