The SM Store Bacolod
SM City Bacolod had the grand opening of The SM Store last April 19, 2013. Although I was invited, I decided to forgo the event since I could not leave the office that morning. Besides I really don't like early morning events and this was for 8 AM! The new department store has three floors that are filled with merchandise enough to make any shopaholic happy for the rest of her life :)
When I went there for the first time last week, I found that one morning is not enough to go around the store. Yes, it is that huge! In fact at first, I did not quite like the set-up, but then I'm basically a small-town girl. And then I realized that the store was designed for world-class shopping and this is the way stores in big cites look like. The first level has the latest trends in clothes and accessories for men, and boy’s teens. There is also the Health and Beauty as well as the Gadgets, Stationery and Kultura Filipino sections in the same level. Shoes and bags are found in the second level, alongside with stylish collection of clothes for ladies and girl’s teens. What is good is that the large area made it easier to choose among different brands. The third level contains the home and houseware sections, the kids and infants clothes, shoes and toys. Best of all there is an elevator for people who are disabled or who like me, avoid escalators unless there is really no other alternative. I am a SM Prestige Card holder and quite happy to note that there is a lounge at SM Store Bacolod to enhance my shopping experience with premium amenities and members-only perks....YAY!
Now if only there was a sale...
...and like an answered prayer for sale enthusiasts like me, there is one from May 1 to 5!
