Last heard they are now located in Orchard Plaza. Not sure if they are still there. I haven't seen them since Specialist Centre was pulled down.

Last saw them at the higher levels of Orchard Plaza (or was it Orchard point?). Old uncle still there.

 

IIRC the Kramat Rd building also got torn down.

 

Last time Morgan, Central and Orchard store were like big model shops. Now all of them look like want to die but never die.

Many of the old-time shops are staffed by people who have little interest in modeling. How to attract customers? The customer base has shifted to new players on the market that actually model and also purchasing from the internet.
