SM Supermalls drops transport terminal plan, continues with SM Center Dagupan


One of the biggest mall operators in Southeast Asia, SM Supermalls had decided to withdraw its planned terminal project supposed to be located at the eastern end of Pere Boulevard to address its larger multi-million peso, SM Center Dagupan, the company declared on Friday.  

The company requested for an 18-month exemption from City Ordinance No. 951-77 during a public hearing by the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP). The company stated that it is still perusing the SM Center Dagupan project at M.H. Del Pilar Street otherwise known as old Pantranco terminal.

An official of SM Supermalls came to Ryan Ravanzo, the city secretary to inform him verbally about company withdrawal on the planned terminal project.

Nevertheless, the chain of shopping malls in the Philippines that has 58 malls located across the country and 6 in China will continue with SM Center Dagupan, which might soon become the biggest investment to come to the city in past years.

Ordinance No. 951-77, said City Legal Office Victoria Cabrera, limits any construction of a terminal in Dagupan whose ingress and egress are within 100 meters far from the city intersection.

Solid North, another bus company is said to be violating the above ordinance as the ingress and egress of terminals are near the Victory and Five Star terminals, which is less than 30 meters away from a street intersection.

Even Dagupan officials are not in favour of terminal planned project by SM but are happy with the construction and establishment of SM Center Dagupan.

The ordinance is still in effect as it has not been amended till now.

Walmart Black Friday $99 TV Deal was a Goof


Something things are too good to be true! That’s what happened when Samsung TVs deal were listed on Walmart Black Friday Flyer for just $99.

Few women from North Texas were looking for great discount on, soon realizing that the Black Friday deal has $99 for Samsung TV, which was good to give a pass. Monique Daniels, based in North Texas ordered two 40-inch TVs and a 75-inch TV for $99 each on Walmart. These sets generally cost between $300 to $2,000.

She quickly shared the deal with her friends and all of them bought the same. However, distressing the ladies Walmart sent out an email to each one saying that orders for the deal were cancelled. Initially, Walmart claimed that customers themselves cancelled the orders. Later the giant explained the cancellation due to “pricing error.”

Walmart said “We needed to cancel some customer orders on a certain TV item. We’ve reached out to apologize to customers and offer them a gift card for the inconvenience.”

These gift card were worth $10 each, upsetting the buyer, who desired the company to give them full value store credit as the discounted TVs. For Walmart, the website disclaimer came as a saviour, which says Walmart may cancel or refuse orders in any event of pricing error.

Such irony is not the first time for Walmart; in fact back in 2013, the company experienced incorrect prices on various products. The company cancelled the orders and gave off unacceptable $10 gift cards to make up for mistake.
