Shopping mall operator SM Prime Holdings Inc. on Wednesday said it will open SM City Grand Central on Friday.
This latest development will add more than 116,000 square meters of gross floor area in the company’s mall portfolio providing six levels of retail spaces meant for shopping, dining, entertainment and recreational experiences in Caloocan.
The company has retained the part of the name of the mall, formerly one of the crown jewels Ever Gotesco Group. It was one of the popular malls in the 1990s as it sits right beside an LRT station.
Ever Gotesco Grand Central was burned down in 2012. It was demolished after the fire and the property was foreclosed and eventually sold to the SM Group. “As the economy starts to re-open given the improving Covid-19 condition in major key areas in the Philippines, primarily here 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 C. Lim said.
