Is your payday coming up? How will you treat yourself after a month’s worth of work?
Usually, workers will relax and reward themselves by simply strolling or shopping at their nearest SM mall.
This is especially true during these ‘ber months’ that are usually the best time to head over to your nearest SM Department Store and scout what you can get for your relatives, family members, or even your special someone months before Christmas.
Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, some are skeptical going outside. Fortunately, there’s a very plausible shopping solution at your fingertips.
SM Stores now has an accessible alternative to the physical mode of shopping –the SM Malls Online — an app developed by SM, allowing netizens and workers to order items straight from the SM Shop right to their doorsteps.
From kids’ toys to men’s and women’s apparel to your favorite food, SM stays true to its motto that they “have it all for you”.
Every purchase made in the app will initially depend on where you are as the items will come from the nearest SM store to your home.
Participating stores are SM Mall of Asia, SM Southmall, SM Megamall, SM North Edsa, and SM City Fairview.
Restaurants from said malls also offer pick-up or delivery purchases for app users. This makes for the overall flexibility of the SM Malls Online app, as it caters to more than e-commerce.
While the app functions like the usual e-commerce platform, what makes SM Malls Online different is it administers the same sales happening on physical branches to the app. If you are indeed keen on visiting your nearest SM store, the application offers an on-site delivery pick-up feature. This means that you can purchase or reserve the item you want and purchase it beforehand.
Once you have your desired item or food purchased via the app, you can head to the store near you and claim your item without lining up and staying long to avoid further physical contact.
One of the best things about SM’s app? Online shoppers’ two favorite words: free shipping!
The app offers free shipping (for door-to-door deliveries) for orders amounting to 500 pesos or more.
