SM Christmas Markets support Small Local Businesses

SM Christmas Markets support Small Local Businesses

How do you feel about this story?


Last month I was in Tagaytay to support local business. But this week it was just near my place which is in SM Megamall.

To see its Christmas Markets booths. Which mainly support local Products and Businesses.

DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez told us about this concept. When they started this project 4 years ago. They are available everyday in Go Lokal booth inside Kultura store.

Now they have over 300 suppliers who’s regular supplier of the Go Lokal projects.

The Bayanihan spirit with our MSME with the support of SM. Around 38% of business closed down during pandemic. Its quite difficult but they encourage us to Laban Lang!

We are fighting for our good health and business economy. Good thing that SM gave them free rental and exposure.

Imagine that, its not only more of business, SM also thinks about humanity and small start up players.

So we need to help each other to create more jobs and business revenue. Especially those small farmers to bounce back during the pandemic period.

See SM President Steven Tan and SM Retail President Chito Manalo speech on videos regarding the partnership with DTI about this SM free market booth and exposure to small business initiatives.

Visit the Go Lokal Christmas Market exhibit in SM Megamall Fashion hall until January 2021. Which SM supports small business as a return favor advocacy for free.

To remember SM as a small player before. When it started as a shoe small stall in Carriedo, Manila half a century ago. Now as one of the largest Malls on earth.
