No GST shopping

Source: The Straits Times

RETAILERS are pulling out all the stops in a bid to draw shoppers, offering special discounts and other deals to get people to spend. The latest to offer goodies is department store Robinsons, which yesterday unveiled its very own 'stimulus plan'.

The store, which has two outlets - at Centrepoint and Raffles City - says it will absorb the 7 per cent goods and services tax (GST) for two weeks, starting from today. Other carrots it is dangling include free home delivery and free parking for the first hour, as well as interest-free instalments for its card members.

Come on Canada. If Singapore can do it we can too. Let's just 'axe the tax'!
