OLONGAPO C1TY-SM Prime Holdings Inc., the country's largest mall operator, opened its 43rd mall here, boosting the city's bid to become a premier destination with continued growth in tourism industry.
SM Supermalls president Annie Garcia and SM Food Group president Herbert Sy led the opening ceremony, which was attended by Olongapo City Mayor James Gordon Jr. and wife, former Zambales vice governor Anne Gordon.
Located along Magsaysay drive-the city's entertainment district-and a few meters away from the main gate of Subic Freeport Zone, the SM Olongapo City
Mall will provide direct and indirect job opportunities to about 4,500 residents in this city.
Garcia said the mall, with a total land area of 42,000 square meters, would bank on Olongapo residents and continued influx of both local and foreign tourists visiting the city and nearby Subic Freeport. Cecille Garcia.
