They got it all for you
The grand mall opening of SM Department Store this year exceeded Negrense expectations with the star-studded inauguration of their P200 million three-level SM Store expansion in Bacolod City Friday.
Jetting in from Manila were the conglomerate’s matriarch, Felicidad Sy, with her grandson Hans Sy Jr., department store president Jorge Mendiola, vice presidents Joey Singian and Marissa Fernan, and other mall officials.
Joining the ribbon-cutting rites were Gretchen Cojuangco, Bacolod first lady Elsa Leonardia, Silay City Mayor Jose Montelibano and wife, Marissa, and business leader Lucy Ponce.
Celebrities Daniel Matsunaga, Paolo Avelino, Patty Betita, Jose Mari Chan, and Fabio Ide were also present at the opening.
The new mega shopping complex is currently the biggest in Negros island, with an area of about 23,800 square meters and has a more complete selection of the best brands. The store was designed by New York retail design firm Point Design Inc.
Congratulations to SM Bacolod Department Store officers, headed by Ana Jeanjaquet and Sharon Hechanova, for a job well done!*
