Report on Shoes Stall at HS Building







Increasing of stall rental in HS Building (near HS Cafe) by referring to the shoes stall which led to the owner to close the stall because he cannot afford to pay the rent. It has created difficulties among students who want to repair their shoes because there is no other shoes stall in HS building.

Meeting the officer of Food, Facilities & Services Division (FFSD).




The rental rate is not increasing at all. The service of shoes stall's owner was terminated due his incapability to abide and follow the terms & conditions set by the top management of FFSD- which cannot be released to public. Therefore, it is not the issue of stall rental as reported by the students and the stall owner.
