Mall developer SM Prime Holdings Inc. (SM Prime) indicated the prospect of recovery is now irreversible, by opening a new mall in Metro Manila which is the SM City Grand Central tomorrow.

The new shopping center adds more than 116,000 square meters (sqm) of gross floor area (GFA) in the company’s mall portfolio providing six levels of retail spaces in Caloocan City.

“As the economy starts to reopen given the improving Covid-19 condition in major key areas in the Philippines, primarily in Metro Manila, we are pleased to welcome customers to our newest mall, SM City Grand Central. The same standard of health and safety protocols will be implemented for a safe and comfortable shopping and dining experience when you visit an SM mall,” SM Prime president Jeffrey Lim said.

SM City Grand Central will be housing popular local and international retail and dining shops with features that are made for Filipino families.

Reigniting shopping itch
Lim said the opening of a new mall seeks to reignite the malling experience.

SM City Grand Central will open with more than 70 percent of space lease awarded, and will have The SM Store, SM Supermarket, Watsons, Miniso, Uniqlo, Crocs, Levi’s, Surplus Shop, ACE Hardware, Pet Express, Sports Central, Our Home, SM Appliance, The Body Shop, National Bookstore, China Bank and BDO.

SM City Grand Central is located at the heart of the commercial district of Caloocan with connections to various transportation terminals going in and out of the Metro including LRT 1 via Monumento Station. It will house more than 700 parking slots, 4 Digital Cinemas, 2 Director’s Club, 2 Regular Cinemas, Foodcourt, Cyberzone, Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Satellite Office, Chapel of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, and The Skylight Park indoor garden.

Skylight Park is a first of its kind indoor park set to offer a breather from the bustling city scene, while enjoying al fresco dining in style and self-care activities in its Health and Wellness Zone.

“As when this pandemic started, SM will continue to support the government’s Covid-19 response program so that we can all look forward to a better and brighter year ahead,” Lim concluded.

SM Prime remains committed to its role as a catalyst for economic growth, delivering innovative and sustainable lifestyle cities, thereby enriching the quality of life of millions of people.
