The who’s who of Davao mingled with the members of the media and other VIPs as SM Lanang Premier opened its doors to the community a day before its official public opening on September 28.  After the Mass and ribbon cutting, officials and special guests led by Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and the SM VIPs went the rounds of what is reported to be Mindanao’s biggest mall.

Guests were ushered in to registration tables to be given identification cards and stickers as guests. Gift cards, certificates and items were given to those with invitations to stores like Forever 21, Mountain Headwear, Watsons, and other stores. There was also a free screening in IMAX.

Forever 21 launched its own fashion show before the store opening, while SMX opened its huge area for trade fairs and exhibits. This opening celebration will last for four days, and will give Dabawenyos something to look forward to in shopping, hanging out and bonding with family and friends.

This includes celebrity sightings as well, of which there are plenty (take note, young and old matrons went gaga over the dashing and ageless Gabby Concepcion, and that’s just on the first day).
