Most of the physical retailers (FairPrice, Giant, Sheng Siong, Dairy Farm) are very traditional businesses with very local working culture. FairPrice and Sheng Siong are starting digital initiatives that could be interesting. As far as e-commerce is concerned, Shopee has a big base here and I heard good things about working there. Lazada apparently declined significantly since Ali took over and a lot of the Rocket people left. And Amazon is still struggling to find its footing in SG. Sent you a DM if you want to chat more.
