SM Prime Holdings president Hans Sy, who led the inauguration of the P1.5 billion SM City Bacolod expanded North Wing, yesterday said his firm is also set to build a hotel and another mall in Negros Occidental.
“Seven years ago, when we opened SM Bacolod, we saw so much potential in Bacolod. We see the future here,” Sy said.
Confident in the economic stability of Bacolod and the emerging growth of neighboring towns and cities, SM Prime Holdings affirms its commitment to provide improved retail facilities and services to the Negrenses, he said.

LA CARLOTA CITY- Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. expressed his support yesterday for the move to connect Negros and Panay islands through a bridge, but not for the creation of a one island Negros region yet.
Marcos, whose father, the late President Ferdinand Marcos, had constructed the San Juanico Bridge, linked Leyte and Samar in the 1970s, said that the building of a bridge between Negros and Panay will boost the economy of the two islands.

A man believed to have been deported from the United States of America was shot dead around yesterday afternoon in Dumaguete City in what is perceived to be another illegal drugs-related case.
The victim, identified as Carl Anthony Vincoy Cheng, 33, single, a resident of Batinguel, Dumaguete City, succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds and was declared dead on arrival at the Holy Child Hospital, Supt. James Goforth, city police chief, said.
Cheng was riding a motorcab-for-hire, or pedicab, from Batinguel en route to Lee Plaza Hypermart in Barangay Bagacay when two men, riding in tandem on a motorcycle, rode up to them and opened fire, investigators said
