G-Mall's Top Overhaul

Ever been to Davao City's Gaisano Mall lately?  Just been there when my mom invited us to join her to check out the place.  It is one of the pioneering malls in our city and due to the rising competition, it's about time to find a good gimmick to attract the public to continue visiting them.  

The newly renovated top floor is quite an attraction especially at night time.  My family enjoyed roaming around the place, with their landscapes composed of plants, pools and lights... and the open area gave us a 360 degrees perfect view of the city.  Also, there's a couple of restaurant around the place and just near the food court, so we had no problem finding a place to eat.  We definitely enjoyed the added treat.


Though I'm the type who loves to try new places, it's still nice to go somewhere you're familiar with, brings back memories I guess.  I remember back then, when we speak of the city's center of business or the downtown area, it was still along Bolton and the nearby streets.  After going to mass in San Pedro church, we usually ate merienda and roamed around the nearby pioneering superstores namely Gaisano, Felcris, Datu Complex and NCCC (in Uyanguren, just a few kilometers away).  But that was long ago (LOL), when the cinemas had still a location of their own, apart from the malls. 

Oh well,  as we all know, the only thing constant in this world is change.  With the recently opened Abreeza (Ayala Mall) and the continuing expansions of SM, all malls must stay competitive, as to goods' prices, ambiance, accessibility, proximity and attractions that would likely affect customers preference over others.  Yahweh bless.

  17. This is what we say a healthy competition. Yes SM and Robinson's are popular but for some malls, they really need to undergo a major overhaul to be competitive.

    ReplyDelete
  18. There's really stiff competition as far as mall is concerned. Much money is spent for the construction of this big mall alone, added with its promotion to attract more business ventures to get into with them. Looking at this picture, I couldn't help myself but to appreciate how Davao grows in business. It really blooms!

  22. Nice to see G-malls having a makeover. They should if they want to seriously compete with mall giants like SM, Ayala, and Robinsons.
