AS a homegrown mall, Parkmall has always supported micro-retailers and starting entrepreneurs as a way of giving back to the community. On August 25-31, as Mandaue City celebrates its 48th Charter Day on the 30th, Parkmall is promoting Mandauehanon micro-enterprises by organizing Mandaue’s Best, a mini bazaar where mall guests can enjoy the finest delicacies and specialties of Mandaue, such as masareal, tagaktak, and bibingka. Mandaue’s Best will be held at the West Lobby inside the mall.
The exhibit serves as the culmination of Parkmall’s Cebu’s Pride campaign, a month-long celebration of the 448th Founding Anniversary of Cebu Province and the Mandaue City Charter Day. Cebu’s Pride gathered different local brands and SMEs for a roster of activities featuring Cebu’s finest crafts, food, and music.
Last August 4-13, fashion designer Dexter Alazas displayed his fashionable pieces made from Cebu’s very own Hablon fabric in an exhibit called Linea Sugbuana. Culminating the exhibit was the Amano by Dexter Alazas, a fashion show featuring his Hablon creations, on August 12 at the Piazza Rotunda.
On the same week at the Central Bark of Parkmall was a display of the different models of world-class bamboo nipa huts or payag by Absolute Bamboo Amenity Corp., an acclaimed company that produces high-quality bamboo products made in Liloan, Cebu. Miniature models of these nipa huts are also currently on display at the East entrance until August 31.
