SM Supercenter Las Piņas will open its doors to the public on Friday, Oct. 2, giving residents in the South Metro area another new way to shop, dine, and have fun the SM way.
Located at a prime 28,600-square meter property in Barangay Talon in Pamplona, Las Piņas, the 34,000-square meter mall is SMs second in the Las Piņas area.
The first, SM Southmall, which opened in 1995, is located in the eastern section; while SM Supercenter Las Piņas will serve customers in the western section of this bustling city. It will also serve customers in the nearby provinces of Laguna and Cavite.
Since its establishment as a fishing port and a major salt making center during the Spanish era, Las Piņas City has grown into an important residential, commercial, and industrial suburb in Metro Manila.
This rapidly urbanizing residential commercial enclave has many large industrial firms and over 250 residential subdivisions, as well as universities, hospitals, and major churches in the area.
Las Piņas is famous for its Bamboo Organ, located inside the Saint Jospeh Church of the Parish of Las Piņas.
Built by Fr. Diego Cera in 1824 out of bamboo, wood, and metal, the organ is the only one of its kind in the world, and is praised for its unique, rare and melodious sound.
Las Pinas is also known as one of the cleanest cities in Metro Manila, and is on the list of the "Clean and Green Hall of Fame" awarded by the Philippine government.
It is also one of two local government units in the country that has been honored with the prestigious "Global 500 Roll of Honor" of the United Nations Environmental Programme.
It has also recently acquired a "Most Competitive City" status in the Philippines.
