    Minion-mania at Marina Square

    CARE for a date with the Minions of Despicable Me fame these June holidays? Then head down to Marina Square.

    The mall will be hosting the yellow critters as part of its Great Singapore Sale (GSS) activities.

    Kids can have a ball of a time by taking part in games at the Despicable Me: Meet the Minions event.

    They can catch popular Minions Stuart, Jorge, Jerry and Tim, who will be taking to the stage with performances.

    The first 60 families to sign up for the event will get to meet the four Minions on stage.

    Over the first two weeks of June, Marina Square will also be holding a range of other activities to keep the little ones occupied.

    This includes Madsnap!, where kids can pose with a time-travel spaceship docked at the atrium. The mall's resident "mad scientist" will also be there, "experimenting" with his invention.

    But it's not just kids who will be having fun this GSS at Marina Square.

    Parents can head down to the John Little Atrium Sale, which offers discounts of up to 70 per cent.

    Shoppers can also get rewarded in lucky draws with purchases of at least $50. They stand to win one of 20 Gc watches - worth between $418 and $898 - at the mall's Early Birds' GSS Draw, from now till Sunday. Those who pay using their United Overseas Bank (UOB) card get to double their chances.

    Customers who spend up to $80 will also be eligible for an instant-draw prize.

    And for those who missed out on the early birds' draw, there is still a Gc watch worth $958 to be won as part of the GSS draw.

    Shoppers who spend at least $150 or charge $120 to their UOB Card can redeem a power bank, which comes in five colours. One colour will be made available each week and redemptions are limited to the first 1,000 customers that week.

    Be there at Marina Square and go bananas.
