Stores will be opened from 10am to 7pm.

The circuit breaker period saw a surge of popularity for Phoon Huat, thanks to the number of home baking experiments.

This led to the shop implementing an odd/even entry date requirement from Apr. 25, where only shoppers with the corresponding IC numbers were granted entry.

On May 1, Phoon Huat even announced that had to close their shops temporarily due to a crowd gathering outside their doors.

The queue was also limited to a maximum number of of 10 people.

The shop rolled out a queue management system on May 5, where shoppers were required to wait elsewhere if the queue exceeded 10 people.
