On their soft opening on September 30, many people went to the mall to see the features of it and i was present during the soft opening. First, I noticed the spacious Activity Area of the mall and it feels like you’re entering in a big international airport. It comprises only a floor, there’s no 2nd floor or 3rd floor. I saw some of the famous brands occupying the mall and I noticed that the department store is just like in department store in Ermita. Also, they have organized supermarket and also just like in Robinsons Manila. The Movieworld of the mall also looks like you’re in the red carpet premiere of your own movie. [**naks naman. **]

Having Robinsons Place Gensan in the city is the sign of being a progressive and prosperous economy that we experienced right now. So far, there are 2 present malls in the city, the Gaisano and KCC Malls. Recently, KCC extended their mall and they opened their new North Wing. The North Wing occupies some of the famous boutiques like Folded and Hung, Crocs, Plains and Prints and soon-to-open Solo, Kashieca, Freeway and Fagioli. Also, the mall is preparing for the opening of its South Wing this year.
Due to the city’s big economy and being a populous city, the SM Prime expresses their thoughts to put a mall in the city and expected to begin their construction in December this year and expected to open on 2011 together with the SM North Lanang in Davao City.
