Written by DZAT on October 21, 2021
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will ask mall operators in Metro Manila to extend their ‘operational hours’ following the upcoming Christmas.
MMDA Chairman Benhur Abalos said this is part of their preparations for Christmas.
He said malls can open at 10:00 or 11:00 am and close at 9:00 or 10:00 pm or even until 12:00 midnight.
According to the official, the plan is to avoid heavy traffic on the streets because those who go to the malls can enter jobs at the same time.
He also said they want to ban ‘weekday sales.’
“This will only be done on Saturdays or Sundays, or if there are only holidays. We will start this in mid -November, ”said the official.
