Shake Shack has introduced its new Summer Cookie Flavoured Shakes until August 31 for dine-in.

“We are delighted to bring special products and supplies this back-to-school season. Because of the Covid-19 situation, schools closed very early this year and children and parents must be eagerly looking forward for schools to start again. Our exciting promotions and offers for the latest and trendiest products are sure to make children’s return to school more exciting and fun. We are thankful to our shoppers for trusting us with their shopping needs and hope they will continue to enjoy the many offers," DHFC general manager Robert Hall said.

DHFC opening hours are: Saturday to Wednesday from 10am to 10 pm, and Thursday to Friday from 10am to 11pm. Children under 12 are still excluded from entering the mall by government order.

In line with the preventative measures set out by the authorities, DHFC has introduced stringent health and safety measures throughout the mall for its staff and visitors. This includes a thorough mall disinfection treatment on a weekly basis, robust cleaning and sanitisation operations during mall trading hours, 127 hand sanitising stations installed in the areas that have commonly touched surfaces.
