SM City Southpoint: The shopping and dining experience at SM City Iloilo will never be the same as the mall just got bigger. After the recent opening of the SM Northwing comes another expansion on the left side of the mall – cozy, open, and beautiful SM City Southpoint. With its grand opening held last November 11, the opening was graced by SM’s very own Hans Sy and with the people that made the new SM haven possible.
Out of the 24 establishments, 15 are now open. Enjoy the likes of Spicy Elements, Jamie’s Steak Room, Live by Healthy Kitchen, Peri Peri Charcoal Chicken and Saucebar, Culture Table Korean Samgyupsal + Korean Shabu-Shabu, Vikings The Philippines’ Largest Buffet Restaurant, Mrs. Whartons, Ramboys Aklan’s Best Chicken and Liempo, Leonitas Homegrown Ilonggo Cuisine, Pizzaro, Ocean Bistro Ocean City, The Pitstop Restaurant, San Jose Cafe, Ninos Burritos, Gourmets Dimsum Singapore-Made Dimsum, Giligans, Sweet Cravings by San Jose, and Cafe Diem.
‘There is no replacement for hard work, said SM’s Mr. Hans Sy, ‘..it is 50 percent hard work, 40 percent guts, and 10 percent luck’ when asked about his advice for aspiring business owners delving into the world of business and entrepreneurship. The son of mall magnate Henry Sy toured SM City Iloilo and SM Northwing shortly after the ribbon cutting of SM Southpoint.
‘I liken SM to my father who is standing on top of a snow mountain wherein he started to do that snowball and let it roll down. You know, a snowball, as it goes down the snow, it becomes bigger and bigger. Over the last 30 years, it is still the same snowball, only bigger’ – added Mr. Sy.
SM Southpoint is now open to the public and will have extended hours of operation compared to the rest of the mall. This would mean extended time for enjoying the open breeze, good food, and cozy ambiance of the mall’s extension. #SMSouthpoint #MoreForYou
