Partnership with Astro Bargains

November 3rd, 2009

At Astronomy.SG, we seek to expand and venture into new areas to serve the Singapore Astronomy community better. To bring to you greater value for Astronomical products and services, we are proud to announce a new tie-up programme with local Astronomy vendor Astro Bargains.

Astro Bargains Logo B

Under this new partnership, we will bring your special promotions from Astro Bargains every month, announcing both on our website and our newsletter. So, no, we are not filling our website with ugly obstructive advertisements or sending you spam emails. We adhere to our conduct of providing content of the strictest quality control.

If you are looking to purchase any astronomical equipment, we will work with Astro Bargains to source for it and get it at the best price. Eventually, we hope to integrate their vast catalogue into our website to offer visitors a new online store to purchase astronomical equipment. With this, we will also be shutting down our very own little shop on our website, to avoid the overlapping of services.

We hope that this new development will enhance the experience of Astronomy for everyone.

For more information, please contact:
