Finally, Dumaguete City is having its mall already.
Last Nov. 23, marked the first day of St. Catherine festive here in Dumaguete City. And on that day too, the Robinsons Place launched its first day opening catering thousands of people coming in from different places and even from abroad.
Taken this during the rainy night on Nov. 24, 2009.
After years of waiting, Robinsons Place is now a reality and not just a gossip anymore. A number of commercial departments were already open since the grand opening of the place. However, still a lot of commercial department stores are still closed. I just do not know if those areas are still vacant for commercial space.
The putting up of Robinsons Place in Dumaguete City could help the city tourism boosts. Aside from that, the Department of Labor and EMployment (DOLE) will be catered also like more employment in the mall itself. However, a lot of rumors has already been heard like the traffic situation in the barangay in Dumaguete City where Robinsons Place is situated. It worsen especially during peak hours, every 6AM until 8AM, 11:30AM until 1PM and during 4:30PM until 7PM. In fact, when we went to Robinsons’ last night, we already noticed a car wherein its front right wheel fell in the canal. Too bad. And the rain made it worst.
Hopefully, city administration as well as the Robinsons Place Dumaguete City would do something regarding the situation.
Happy shopping at Robinsons Place Dumaguete City.
