The year 2020 has brought about a multitude of changes—the new normal has forced people to shift to a new lifestyle, develop new routines, and most importantly, see things with a new perspective. 2020 has been a challenging year for most and now that the year is coming to an end, people should consider looking at things differently instead of recounting all the what-if’s and could-be’s. Life goes on and one has to make an important choice—get stuck with how things used to be or move forward and embrace how things could be. With Christmas being such a big deal for Filipinos, it is understandable to be upset over not being able to observe the traditions Filipinos grew up with. However, it is important to recognize that this doesn’t mean Christmas is cancelled. This year, Filipinos can come to discover “A New Kind of Christmas” and cherish every moment that they still have with their family and friends—whether it be together or safely apart.
Under community quarantine, movement is still extremely limited; curfew is still in place, establishments needing to comply with a designated maximum capacity for their stores, and those under 15 and over 65 still not being allowed outside. For Filipinos, Christmas is the season of giving, and the season of giving means it is also the season for shopping. However, given these restrictions, shopping during this time can be particularly challenging. Which is why Vista Mall and Starmall continue to offer their personal shopper services for those who are having difficulties shopping. The malls’ personal shopper services allow for customers to shop while being safe—just call or send a Viber message to the malls’ ShopBuddy hotlines to inquire or purchase. Customers can buy from any establishment inside their nearest Vista Mall and can order from up to 3 stores, no minimum order required, guaranteed no shopper’s fees. Shopped items can be delivered on the same day or on a predetermined date by Vista Mall and Starmall’s logistics partner—GetAll.
While this season is known for bringing people into the mall to shop, it is also a fact that families come to malls at Christmas time because of the magical and unique experiences especially prepared for the kids. After all, Christmas is really all about children. With the current restrictions on minors being implemented, Vista Mall and Starmall came up with a safe way for kids to still enjoy Christmas Traditions that they usually go to the malls for. Vista Mall and Starmall introduce “Once Upon A Holiday: A New Kind of Christmas”. This Holiday Special allows kids to see and interact with Santa Claus and special surprise characters through a virtual party that the malls will be hosting online. There will be two show dates, allowing for more children to experience the magic of Christmas while in the comfort and safety of their homes. The first show date commenced last December 13 while final show date is scheduled on December 20. More information on this special event is available at the official Facebook pages of Vista Mall, Starmall, and Vista Lifestyle Centers, NOMO and Evia.
During this time, Vista Mall and Starmall will be observing modified operating hours to allow shoppers enough time to purchase their essentials for the holiday season while also ensuring that mall personnel will be able to celebrate the special season with their families. Customers are strongly advised to plan their shopping trips in advance to avoid any inconvenience. Complete mall hours are available at the malls’ corporate social media pages, facebook.com/vistamallofficial and facebook.com/StarmallOfficial
