It’s hard for brick and mortar shops to survive given the kind of competition they face from online stores. The margins aren’t great ..
Previously there was an Audio store in Sim Lim called Merdeka and there were good computer stores on Funan, but if rentals are high, these shops may get squeezed out and have to find another home in the suburbs..

Computer shops no need brick and mortar. Just go online. Win win for both the business and consumer.
