Last weekend, both SM City Manila and SM City San Lazaro held a 3-Day SALE in celebration of MANILA DAY. Manila Day is actually celebrated on the 24th of June. But June 24, although a Sunday, is an odd date for a SALE. Ideally a mall sale is conducted during the 15th or the 30th of a Month, the same time where most companies releases the salaries of their employees.
June 16 Saturday – I went to SM City San Lazaro for a food tasting event but it was also the 2nd Day of the MANILA DAY SALE, so together with my food tripping buddies – we searched from floor to floor for great bargains. The whole mall is in a festive mood.
One thing I’ve noticed about the place while going around is that they’ve got a lot of shops and features that are not present in other SM malls. For example, I found this contraption that looks like a vending machine at the center of the food court.
This is actually a gadget charging station. I think that placing this here is an excellent idea – so people can charge their devices while taking a quick snack break.
Another great thing about the Manila Day Sale is that it coincides with the Fathers’ Day Celebration. So it’s like a two-in-one event topped with a SALE of up to 70% discount on selected items! Now that’s a weekend.
Big discounts! Awesome shops! Fun Environment! Great Food! – That’s SM City San Lazaro for you in a nutshell. The big question is “How to get there.” It’s very near the TAYUMAN LRT STATION. So, all you need to do is go and ride the LRT and you’re there.
SM City San Lazaro is relatively a new mall – less than 10 years in existence but they really have a lot to offer so check them out whenever you are in the area.
