Hundreds of people literally mobbed the official opening of WalterMart mall here on Saturday afternoon.
The mall near the busy Roman Highway is the first branch in Bataan and the 30th in the country.
Governor Albert Garcia, Balanga City Mayor Francis Garcia, and WalterMart general manager Jerico Buñing welcomed the costumers who waited for hours to enjoy exclusive promos such as buy 1 take 1, 50% discounts, and free gifts.
Bishop Ruperto Santos of the Diocese of Balanga led in the blessing of the community mall.
Buñing said the mall has four anchor tenants like WalterMart supermarket and department store, Abenson, Home plus and various food choices and services.
The supermarket offers fresh items, bakery, beauty and baby sections, and wide assortments of groceries and imported items while the department store carries favorite fashion brands like Jag, Bench, Penshoppe, Dickies, Nike, Vans, New Balance, Outland, Patriot and Ever Bilena, the GM said.
Buñing said WalterMart Balanga will have food choices for the family such as Mang Inasal, Giligans Restaurant, Dunkin Donuts, Turk’s Shawarma, Potato Corner, Siomai House, Waffle Time, TK Takoyaki, Ate Rica’s Bacsilog and a food court for peers to meet up and bond.
He said Japan Home, MR. DIY, Watsons and Expression, Western Union, Picture City and World of Fun are also operational at the mall. “It has a spacious parking area,” Buñing added. (PNA)
