When is Terminal 21 scheduled for opening ?

Recommended Posts

The shopping scene is Pattaya is getting a bit bland with Central Festival being the lone flag bearer.  T21 is a nice addition as it's located along the baht bus route, unlike Harbor Mall.  I hope there will be a main departmental store such as Robinsons or Central or The Mall or Zen to spruce up the shopping experience.

 

Okay ... any idea when T21 will start operating ?

I've heard from a business across the road that it will open in November. I don't think there'll be a department store if BKK T21 is anything to go on.

I'd prefer no large department store in T21.  What makes T21 in BKK great other than the Food Park is that it has many small unique one-off shops with good quality items that you don't see in the run of the mill type mall like Central Festival.

 

The most recent schedule date I heard was October.  If not October it should be soon after.  They likely want to be up and running before high season.

The presence of an anchor departmental store is inclusive - we can still have many unique stores, as in MBK where Tokyu is the anchor tenant.

What I found is, that they started recruiting staff last month (13/14 July).

Job fair with 125 companies.

 

A post on tripadvisor says that a date of Friday, Oct 19 has been released. No source, so to be used with caution.

First week in October is Golden Week in China when millions go on holiday. Would be a good time to open.

I don't bet on this 19 October.

It's based on an "informed source / retail executive" :whistling:.

From an article in "prachachat.net", some online economy magazine.

So not a big public announcement.

I think my 1st week in October guess may be an aspiration rather than a reality. There is a lot of activity 7 days a week outside, but who knows about progress inside?

I'm of the opposite mind regarding department stores. The department store at Central is my go-to shop for a lot of stuff I can't get anywhere else. It has been an invaluable shopping spot for me over the years since it has been open.  

 

But you'll have your wish at T21 as I doubt there will be one there.

T21 is my least favorite mall in BKK.  I'll take Paragon, Em Quartier and Central over T21.

Love to have something from the Mall Group in Pattaya but I don't think Pattaya is upscale enough

for their liking.

I have a friend who is Chinese. He said the tours are advertising it as part of their tour itinerary starting in December. So, my guess is early November.

Yes, while in Bangkok T21 seldom excites me.  Like you, I prefer The Mall Bangkapi, Zen, Isetan, Tokyu and Central World/Chidlom.  T21 is an enclosed and air conditioned version of Pratunam market.  I like the decor, especially the toilets.  But without a departmental store, a lot of stuff will go missing - such as exquisite timepieces and Jaguar shirts @ 499 baht.
