Nothing gets me excited than the weekends. I can finally have time for myself. No more work, no more traffic, no more STRESS, no more nothing. What’s with the weekends, anyways? This weekend, I heard that there’s a Flash Sale going on. Yep, shopping is my stress reliever. I headed to Robinson’s Flash Sale at the newly opened Ayala South Park mall in Muntinlupa City. Yeah, it’s Friday. It was traffic and July 14th is a payday which makes it even worse but a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do. Huge discounts mean stretching the power of the peso.
Besides, it’s not everyday that there’s a sale. The flash sale is exclusive to Robinson’s Rewards Card holders but the card can be purchased for a discounted price of P100 instead of the usual P150 if you don’t have it yet. Participating stores are Robinson’s owned establishments: Robinson’s Department Store, Robinson’s Supermarket, Daiso, Toys ‘R Us, Handyman and South Star Drug.
My first stop was Toys “R” Us. They have a huge selection of toys and I thought of bringing some home for my nephews. Toys R Us was officially launched here in the country in 2006 and is best known as the “World’s Greatest Toy Store”.
They have a strong portfolio of brands, they also have their own line of private brands and exclusive merchandise such as BRU, Dream Dazzlers, True Heroes, Just Like Home, Educational Science, Fast Lane, Animal Alley, and You and Me dolls. Toys “R” Us is a go-to-store for toy lovers of all ages. I have to admit, at this age I still have a thing for collecting toys.
It was a breeze going through the store as everything is neatly categorized. They have the Let’s Play Zone, Action and Adventure Zone, Tech Zone, Babies “R” US, Family Fun, and Game one. Ayala South Park is their 33rd branch up to date.
Next is my hunt for clothes at the Robinsons Department Store. Thirty to a whopping seventy percent discount applies to selected merchandise. Even the branded ones are on sale too! Shoes, jackets, sporting goods, jewelry and so much more were all on sale! The sale range from 30% to 70% and that is a lot of saving to get a whole new chic wardrobe.
My favorite store would be Daiso Japan where they have most products for Php 88. It’s where I shop for beauty products, snacks, chocolates, household items and everything kawaii.
Their hardware store is the Handyman where I looked for the tools I need. I have this habit of fixing things rather than hiring a carpenter to do the job. I even have my own tool box at home!
I remembered back in the province, there were Southstar drug branches. Finally we have it here too. It is strategically located beside Robinson’s Supermarkets and these two stores are both part of the Flash sale. Grocery goods and even my medicine were purchased at discounted prices. One of my favorite place at any mall is the Supermarket and what differentiate Robinson Supermarket from the rest, is their advocacy to focus on improving and promoting wellness. The first selection of food that was displayed on their entrance was the fresh fruits so that people can easily grab healthier options. They do have a rack of food and tags for health conscious individuals.
I clearly lost track of time as I did my shopping but it was convenient due to the friendly and polite staff. I meticulously check for product details before buying them and they did not fail to provide assistance in the process. Check out lines are organized. Personally, I shop at Robinson’s stores also because of the great store atmosphere and design. There are still two days left. The three-day Flash Sale at Ayala South Park Mall is from the 14th to the 16th of July. It was a good thing I bought everything I need before Saturday. Happy shopping everyone!
