Getting Ready for Summer at SM North EDSA

February is here and we can feel the change in the air. Just as we turn the page on our calendar to usher in a new month, the cool air of January suddenly vanishes and gives way to warmer weather. SM North EDSA’s Great Northern Sale happens at a fitting time as we make new purchases to get ready for the coming summer months.

Catch Those iButterflies!

SM Supermalls lives up to its tagline “We’ve got it all for you!” as it presented the iButterfly mobile application for the always connected generation last Saturday, May 5 at the SM North EDSA The Block Atrium.

The event was entertaining and interactive. Bloggers, shoppers and guests were given a chance to join some games and try out the application to win freebies and prizes. I arrived midway through the event to find the Pass the Message game, sponsored by Smart, ongoing. Afterwards, there … Continue Reading →
