Safe Malling in The New Normal 2020

Take a closer look at the new way to live, shop and dine in 2020 as SM Supermalls turns its malls to safe innovative spaces. #TogetherAtSM

Posted by SM Supermalls on Friday, June 26, 2020

WHETHER shopping for essentials or dropping by to pay bills and buy one's stock of vitamins, safety is top of mind for all. There is a safe community space where one can do more in a one-stop-shop and it’s one's nearest community SM mall! Here are some suggestions on how to maximize one's next mall visit:

1. Tech Up! It’s Cybermonth from July to August.

Working from home, home-schooling the kids, or gaming? Cyberzone can help one upgrade his work-from-home essentials or remote learning needs by watching on-site live demos online. One can make a list and visit to get first dibs on Cyberzone’s exclusive deals and freebies at selected outlets and have a chance to win exciting prizes during the #SMCybermonth2020. #CheckCyberzone

2. Support local, shop local.

SM has over 15,000 micro, small and medium enterprises. One can help them get back on their feet when he buys from them. Milk tea, turmeric powder, essential oils, native snacks, or salted egg potato chips–there are kiosks and carts for what one needs. When one helps them with his purchase, it’s called BUYanihan.

3. Help SM's farmers! Check out fresh produce at the Farmers’ Produce.

One can buy vegetables, in-season fruits, dairy products and handmade condiments at the SM Farmers’ Produce coming to a mall near him. Check out the schedule here: SM City North Edsa (July 31 to Aug. 2), SM Mall of Asia (Aug. 7 to 9 and 14 to 16), SM Megamall (Aug. 21 to 23 and 28 to 30), and SM Southmall (Sept. 4 to 6 and 11 to 13). This is a project of the Department of Agriculture, RestoPH and SM happening in malls on weekends all year round.

4. Score living essentials and fashion must-haves at discounted prices.

#ShopAtSM now and score great deals! From home furniture, tech gadgets, sports gear, fashion and make-up to kids’ and babies’ needs, these on-site and online flash deals are way too good to pass up.

5. Say bye to quarantine hair mishaps.

One can finally get the haircut he needs as barbershops and salons open at their favorite SM Malls. Say bye to quaran-trimmed hair and enjoy a bit of pampering from the professionals.

6. Show pets some TLC.

If one's pet needs some TLC too, he can replenish his pet's wellness needs by stocking up on pet essentials from trusted pet stores at SM. From nutrition to grooming, they've got it all for one's furry friend.

7. Give in to food cravings!

One can now savor what he missed during the ECQ, safely. With all restaurants at only 50 percent dine-in capacity, one can have his favorite meal and dine in without worry. One can choose from restaurants that have safety features like transparent dividers and touch-free cashless payments, or have his meal at one of SM’s fun Designated Dining Spaces.

8. While dining, take a selfie at IG-worthy dining spaces.

Take IG-worthy photos with K-Drama stars or giant smileys as backdrop at the malls’ designated dining spaces. Cathedral-high, airy spaces with fun icons while observing safe distancing as one can #DineInSM.

9. Be thoughtful. Take Home some Pasalubongs for Loved Ones.

Don’t forget those left at home. Order ahead from any of the restaurants and pick these up after all the chores and shopping is done. From pizza to ramen, cakes to freshly baked cookies, toys for the little and big boys, there’ll be smiles all around when one gets home.

10. Don’t forget health essentials!

Before leaving, one should check his list for things that are needed in this new normal–does one have enough stocks of masks, face shields, alcohol, sanitizing wipes, vitamins and immune boosting supplements? Make that last stop for all these at The SM Store, Ace Hardware and Watsons. #EverythingsHereAtSM

Now one can make his list, wear his mask and visit SM where shoppers' health and safety remain top priority. SM continues to carry out strict health and sanitation measures round-the-clock nationwide. #SafeMallingatSM #KasamaNgSM #SMforSMEs
