Blueport Grand Opening

Post by RCer » Wed Sep 14, 2016 6:44 pm

Just saw an advert announcing the grand opening of Blue Port and thought I'd share.

[Mod Edit] - Unfortunately, that link breaks forum rules. However, thank you for advising the 1 Oct'16 date.

I think the moderator is being a bit heavy handed here. The advert was a one off hopefully and surely of interest to forum members.

[[Mod Comment: Please abide by T&Cs. The advert was from a rival publication, and contained real estate links. Both of which are strictly forbidden on this site. If you want to discuss, out of courtesy to other forum members, contact Admin, also IAW T&Cs.

Further discussion on the validity of the link will be deleted.

It's quite a major shift and I'm sure it's because of Blueport opening in just over a month. I'm told that the supermarket there is TOPS. Can anyone confirm this?
I would have thought it would be Gourmet Market like their other properties.
Dean & Deluca. a gourmet market.

I'm glad to see a Uniqlo. Their cheap t-shirts wick sweat excellently.

I drove past there yesterday and they've still got a lot of work to do to open on the 1st of October!

Always tickles me how such cringe worthy English is used on a website aimed at farangs!

Now I happen to have met one or two people who work for this company that could do much better. An asst. general manager of one of their Malls was educated in America and speaks excellent English, albeit with an American slant on things. But I'd settle for a few 'z's' and missing vowels compared to what's on that website!

(And I am well aware of my own limitations, so no need to come here and tell me so). :D

It always makes me cringe also. However it certainly gets my attention. Whether or not I grasp the intended point of the advert is a completely different matter.

Seriously, where are they getting the names of Farangs in the area? I can only think of 3 places that should hold my name and address, and they should not be sharing that information.
