All of us have reasons on going to one place and for not going
the same way businesses have their own reasons why they do business with SM and why some dont
To each of us ... well we all look forward to what establishment that best serves us ....
or which whill help our business to profit
Also as a business entity perhaps SM is doing something right .... more people come to their establishments compared to others....
They are willing to take the risks in putting up more stores on places we may think is ridiculous for a mall to exist.....
Life is unfair .... and that is a fact ....
It just SM had thought of these ways first .... dont you think that if others could have done the same
Now Robinson's also charges 20K for product debuts in their Supermarkets
They also charge parking fees
Puregold has no parking fee ... but i do not see all the stuff I need here .....
SM has an answer to Puregold ... SM Supervalue
SM has no answer to the Makro chain of stores... So SM buys them out
Trinoma has a long way to improve... Trinoma's multi-level parking, is a headache... whoever designed the traffic on this should be shot
SM MOA employed the lighted RED/GREEN parking slots
Emerging malls need to capture the way people/shoppers think ....so they can woo them into their establishment
SM using its SM Advantage Card .. can collects data, analyzes it and make decisions based on it ..in acceptable timeframes
They even use this on other SM affiliated establishments such as Watsons, gas stations etc..
I agree SM has a unique way in doing business, treating employess, billing suppliers, charging customers .....
I wish we have a choice that can even up with SM ... life then can be more fair
so i wonder y u guys still go to sm?
do u know they r the #1 destoyer of our industries here! they command the price of ur products. if u dont follow, ur out of their stores. if u follow, u will be forced to cut production cost or just close ur factory and import from china - u guess who gets employment. and they slap a 40% patong on everygoods that is sold in sm, which automatically will go to sm and you still have to pay rent, salaries, taxes on ur own
y pay parking fees? its clearly a rule in building code if you build a structure there should be a commensurate space for parking to be provided to customers. u go there to patronize their stalls and u r still punished by paying parking. In SHOPWISE Cubao - mas reasonable. u get FREE parking if you buy at least P300 of groceries. D ba FAIR! so where do the parking fees go - to pay for the CONTRACTUAL employees.
Who pays for the advertisements of SM (ads SM mismo and not the products) - eh di un mga tenants. Tama ang story that sm send letters to ask for solicitations kuno. kya nga solicitation, pwede tanggihan. Subukan mo lang tanggihan, pati ikaw tanggihan ka for lease renewal ng stall mo.
worst..they r also ur direct competitor as many of their own products are imported directly from china. so hu gets unemployed again and hu gets rich! instead of every1 saying lets spend family time by being together at home or go on a picnic - ang sigaw eh..go to sm. CRAZY! go somewhere else and not sm.
and where do they get their money to pay their taxes - YOU!!!
and who gets to be advertised as the great charitable company (where all goods and money are solicited from other sources except their own)...ur right again man - YOU!!!
SM - SADDIST MASOCHIST!!!
SM - SPEND MORE!!!
SM - SURE MONEY!!!
SM - SaMantala
go to TRINOMA nalang kayo, mas may taste ang products and most specially mas may ART and SUPERB DESIGN ang structure. Kaya nag gaya ang sm north and other malls nya dba! para kunyari may taste of art din sya pero #1 sa pagputol ng TREES and generation of TRAFFIC ang sm!
