The Big Davao Fun Sale



I am a proud Davaoeño and almost everyone of you here are aware of it. I practically grew up in this sprawling metropolis and I have witnessed its growth since then. Back when I was still a kid, the only shopping destinations I knew were JS Gaisano Ilustre, Victoria Plaza Mall, and Gaisano Mall. There were no SM or Ayala Malls that time. As years went by, the population increased and businesses and investments flourished. To make the long story short, several establishments sprouted like mushrooms in order to address the demands of the people.

With a total population of 2 million, Davao has grown big and is preparing for something bigger this March and April 2014. Brace yourselves, guys. The Big Davao Fun Sale is coming to town!

The grandest shopping event of the biggest city in the Philippines will be from March 14 to April 16 of this year, supported by the City Government of Davao City, the Philippine Retailers Association and the Department of Tourism XI. Imagine, four weeks of non-stop shopping, with deals up to 80% off on your favorite brands and items! And did you know that this event is also set in time for Araw ng Dabaw? That's like hitting two birds with one stone!

Such wow! Much exciting!


Watch the teaser trailer below:





The Big Davao Fun Sale will be participated by all major malls in the city namely Abreeza Ayala Mall, NCCC Mall of Davao, SM Lanang Premier, SM City Davao, Robinsons, Gaisano Mall of Davao, and Gaisano Mall of Toril. To add the excitement, these malls will have different themes.

Weekly Theme of the Big Davao Fun Sale: 

March 14-16: General Sale (Mall wide)
March 14- April 16: Dining, Crafts, Fruits and Flowers (On sale the whole month)
March 16-23: Health and Beauty
March 24-30: Electronics and Gadgets
March 31- April 6: Home and Travel
April 7-16: Active Lifestyle/Fashion

So what are you waiting for? Book a flight to Davao and join the fun! By the way, Cebu Pacific Air is one of the major sponsors of this event and starting February 25 to June 8, they will be deploying their brand new wide-body jet, the Airbus A330-300. As a self-confessed aviation geek, I'd want to try and experience it! Cebu Pacific Air will utilize the same A330-300 aircraft in two daily Manila-Davao-Manila flights. 5J 8975/8968 will depart Manila at 11:10am and leave Davao at 2:25pm. On the other hand, 5J8973/8974 will depart Manila at 5:40pm and leave Davao at 8:55pm. Other Cebu Pacific flights in and out of Davao will be serviced by their Airbus A320/A319 fleet.

This is the first of its kind here in the country and I commend the event organizers, specifically the Department of Tourism XI, and the major sponsors for orchestrating this promising event that is uniquely Davao.

I can't wait to go home and shop (and party) 'til I drop. Literally. Teehee!

Life is truly here in Davao!

  6. Glen of Escape Manila was actually able to tell me about this event (since I was also in Davao on the day of the launch). I just couldn't help but peg it with 'The Great Singapore Sale'. :) But one thing's for sure! This is surely going to be an amazing shopping event!
