“Most of the shops are closing down. They are putting their shops up for rent, or to sell,” Keith can be heard saying in the video, as he showcased the many shops that are closed with ‘for rent’ or ‘for sale’ signs along the once bustling ‘bubble tea street’ of SS 15.
If you’ve been to the area recently, you’ll see for yourself how the once bustling street is now barren and quiet. Many images are also circulating online to show how these once popular bubble tea stores are now shut down.
