OCBC bank has posted on their Facebook page informing their customers of the closure of the branch.

Tenants are concerned that the collapse might deter patrons from visiting the mall.

There was also a fire incident at JEM on the 17th of August 2013. Three employees working at the Ready-to-Eat counter at NTUC FairPrice Xtra store became casualties.

It is not known if the tenants will sue JEM management for negligence.
