When a New Mall Opens - Walter Mart Sta. Maria Bulacan

Walter Mart Sta. Maria, Bulacan is now open!

Everybody sure has attended a house warming/blessing, but being able to witness a mall opening/blessing complete with the tossing of coins for luck is extraordinary! Here is the opening of the latest Community Mall, Walter Mart in Santa Maria Bulacan.

Tarsy leads the opening of Abenson, the biggest appliance network

The newest Walter Mart aims to become the "center" of family bonding and activities in Sta. Maria, it is eco-friendly in that the ground floor allows for natural ventilation like what the latest malls also have. One may think that in times of recession, is it good to open a huge mall like Walter Mart? I am one of those who believe that recession can actually be solved by making the money go around aka spending and shopping.

The grocery staff welcomed guests for the first time with a choreographed cheer :)

Also, the town's people were all smiles after the guards finally let them explore the mall for the very first time. I remember this feeling of excitement and curiosity when a shopping mall also opened near our village.

Everything was new and fresh - the staff's uniforms, the shelves, the grocery, the inventory, everything! Walter Mart finally brings city-shopping to the province and being one of the firsts to step into this new mall is a wonderful experience.

Walter Mart also helps Bulacan's local businesses by featuring the town's products like these sosyal condiments counter at their grocery. It looks like a modern bar but it dispenses vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce, etc.

More interesting shops are bound to open in Walter Mart Sta. Maria, happy shopping to all Bulakeños ! :)
