The WYLD Shop is a Fashion + Lifestyle boutique on the East Coast of Singapore. You'll find a colourful and affordable mix of Australian High Street Style infused with Malaysian & local Singaporean brands plus a sweet hint of Dutch Home-wares and Furniture.
As with many great stories, it all started with a party.
Native Aussie Kara Bensley-Austin wanted to introduce more Singaporeans to Australian High Street chic: a laid back, sun-drenched aesthetic driven by the cosmopolitan heartbeat of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. She threw a party and a pop-up store for Singapore’s fashion forward--and was stunned by the response. As her style pieces flew off the shelves, it became clear people wanted more. And thus, theWYLDshop.com was born. And now they have their newly-opened showroom, The WYLD Shop at 412 Joo Chiat Road. Read more about the labels which they carry here.

Opening on 10 December is Weber Store & Training Cente at Joo Chiat. Weber is a premier brand of grill/barbeque equipment. The line of grills, dubbed to be created by grillers, for grillers.
In 1952 George Stephen Sr. was working at Weber Brothers Metal Works in Chicago, Illinois, manufacturing marine buoys when he came up with an idea for a better grill. His invention: a dome-shaped grill with a lid to protect food from the elements, while sealing in that only-from-the-grill barbecue flavor. George Stephen cut a buoy in half, added some air vents and legs and, in the process, invented the grill that would spark a backyard revolution.
