SM creates more jobs in Pangasinan 


EMPLOYMENT and business opportunities are expected to flourish this year as mall giant SM City opens two more super malls in Pangasinan.

Kristine Santiago, public relations officer of SM City Rosales, said a job fair will commence on January 31 at the Urdaneta City Cultural Center for the new SM branch in Urdaneta City.

“Almost all positions will be open at the SM City Urdaneta Central branch, so more job opportunities are up, even for tenants,” Santiago told the Philippine Information Agency.

She said some 32 companies are participating in the job fair.

SM management is eyeing the Urdaneta branch as its 70th mall. It will come complete with Hypermart, department store, dining, apparel and many more, she said.

Santiago said the proximity of SM Urdaneta to the present SM mall in Rosales town, which is just 15-20 minutes away, is not an issue since each mall has its own catchment area. Rosales branch caters to Nueva Ecija and Tarlac while the Urdaneta City branch is nearer eastern Pangasinan and La Union.

Another branch will rise in downtown Dagupan City in time for the Christmas season this year. Construction is on-going and hiring of mall employees will happen soon, she added.

“Expect more employment opportunities and more choices on goods because we offer a one-stop-shop and we have it all for everyone in one roof,” Santiago said. (VHS, PIA-Pangasinan)
