I was so privileged to be invited for an exclusive sneak preview of this year’s King Koil Warehouse Sale today! If you’ve not heard yet, this year’s highly popular King Koil Warehouse Sale is happening from 2 – 5 September 2016 at 13 Sungei Kadut Way.
Most of the items especially beddings, linens, pillows etc are at the entrance foyer area under shelter. There are lots of fans to cool the area and King Koil has even set up a welcome desk with free mineral water if you are thirsty. So do remember to hydrate as you shop! 🙂
Load up on bolsters and pillows cos they are so so cheap!! There are seriously so many types on sale there, it was mind boggling!
The beddings and linen available at the ground floor foyer was really almost endless. I got myself a really good quality plain coloured Egyptian Cotton Sateen King Size full bed set for only $40!!
Also got my mum this set of Orlendo 100% Prima Cotton Sheet set, very high thread count for only $60! hehe… our CNY beddings are all ready this time 🙂
There are really rows and rows of various types and qualities of bedsheet sets, so do take your time to browse and compare before you decide what’s ideal for your needs.
I also spied at a corner where sample beddings were selling for just $10! These are mostly display pieces at departmental stores so really no harm if the design and type suits your needs! hehee…
Beds and Mattresses are within air-conditioned areas in the main lobby.
Take the lift up to the 5th floor for higher end beds and mattresses.
The 5th floor also has a sofa furnishing sales area. You can customise your sofa to your liking for fabrics even at the warehouse sale! hehe.
Great Bargains for Beddings on the 5th!
Be sure to check out the Fossflakes (Denmark), Dorma (UK) and Silk range in the 5th floor!! It’s really substantial discounts, see the photos below 🙂
If you like the great quality softness of Tencel the Dorma collection has a really good discount at 5th floor. There are lots to choose from and really pretty colours too! I got myself a King Size full bed set for only $100! My CNY bedding is all set! 🙂
There are also very good quality Children’s beddings at the 5th floor. Just look at the crazy discounts, I wish I had stayed longer arghh!! These are all great quality high thread count beddings that are so unusual for kid’s beddings!
5th floor items have to be paid for there. Assistants at each section will issue you an invoice to make payment before collecting your items.
The only issue about purchasing from different areas is that you will not be able to put all your purchases into one bill. Items from each floor or section have to be paid at the respective cashiers in each area. Do take note as it will mean multiple queues at each section! 🙂

6 Tips to Get the Best Out of the Sale
As with all good sales, go early to get the best pickings. As the saying goes, the early bird gets the worm. This explains the queues forming wherever there are good deals. Every Singaporean knows to sniff a good deal is to watch the crowd queues. No harm to be the first in line at all! hehee..
Also, for another practical reason, it’s definitely going to be cooler at 9am than say 12-3pm! Of course, you can make a contrary reasoning that 12-3 pm may have less crowd since it’s hotter and it’s lunch time. Whichever, works for you, just be sure to get there before the Sale ends! LOL!
Another thing is, if you’re early, you don’t have to fight for a parking space or wait for one! Note that official coupon parking along the road is very limited hehe…
Have a Shopping List
Come mentally prepared to BUY!
Having a mental list of what to buy helps you focus and narrow down where the good deals, most suitable for your needs, are. It means less second thoughts, regrets and time wasting. You can better zoom in and sniff out the good bargains, make your comparisons and choose the best colours to match your home theme.
Be decisive and pick what you like quickly. Remember sale items, sizes and designs are limited, once someone takes the last piece, you’ll have to scout around again for something else.
Plus, you will also likely not go away with things you don’t need in the end. Your husband will also thank you for not spending a draggy long amount of time at the sale, especially if he is not a shopping fanatic.
Avoid bringing the kiddos
This may be quite hard to do since the sale is happening over the school holiday weekend but if you can get help to watch the kids, it will make shopping so much faster, easier and less hassle without the little ones. Unless, you have really very guai kiddos, you will know what I am talking about. Haha… I certainly prefer shopping without Wey around!! I can shop, choose and grab in peace without having to answer a zillion questions from him!
Most kids dread going to such events and when they get bored, you know what happens. “Mummy, can I go to the toilet?” ” Mummy, I’m thirsty/ hungry.” “I’m tired, I want to sit down!” ” Mummy, are we done? Can we go somewhere else?” Avoid such stress if you can help it, but if you really can’t leave them at home, remember to bring some books or toys to entertain the kids!
Better yet, dangle some attractive reward for good behaviour! Even, better perhaps to bring your spouse to entertain them while you make your choices! You’ll be also glad to know that there are some air-con areas at the lobby and at the 5th floor that will be more comfortable for very young kids hehe 😛
As most of the warehouse sale is held in the open-air sheltered foyer area, it’s still best to dress light to remain cool. Although, the place is well ventilated with fans and air blowers, it can still get quite warm when it is crowded.
There are some air-con areas at the lobby and the 5th floor where beds and mattresses, sofas are on display for the warehouse sale. However, most of the beddings, pillows and linens are downstairs under temporary canopies outdoors.
Do remember to stay hydrated too in this crazy hot and humid weather.
Bring your wallet, Family & Best Friends
Shopping with BFFs is not overrated. Friends can help you look out for the best deals, compare and choose, make the day more fun and light-hearted! I love shopping with someone else because it’s like a good tag team. Sometimes, you just need that extra pair of hands and eyes to help you carry or ‘chope’ your items! haha, you know what I mean?
You will be glad to know that credit cards and cash are accepted and if you have a Passion Card, you get extra 5%!!! Wahahha!! But most importantly, don’t leave home without your wallet! And if you do, that’s why it’s best to bring your BFFs along! hahaa 🙂
Go Again and Again!
Haha I’m not kidding. I always find myself going back to a good sale again! Well, if a sale is genuinely good, you will find yourself wanting to go again and again.
So go early, and if you have any regrets of items missed out, you can always make a dash back again! hahha.. seriously, Singapore is small and to get a bargain (if you are a Bargain King or Queen) you wouldn’t mind chiong-ing down again! 🙂
So get set to chiong down to the sale before it ends!
