A New METRO to Discover in Alabang

Known for its comfortable and friendly outlets that offer a wide assortment of fresh and quality products at competitive prices.  Their retail activities typically range from supermarket operations, department store operations, appliances, furniture and home needs, apparel, fine jewelry. pharmacy, gourmet deli, bakeshops and fast food outlets.

Metro's vision is to become a world-class retailer and aims to achieve top choice status among retail shoppers.  Providing quality products in a pleasant environment complimented by delightful customer service is its mission.

Being the leading retail store in Cebu, Vicsal Development Corporation-a private and family owned business,         now marks its 18th store and the third here in Metro Manila.  In the company's roster are, Metro Market! Market!  in Bonifacio Global City and Metro Market in Lucky Chinatown Mall in Binondo.    With a grand opening last August 19, 2012 that came unmatched by any other store openings, customers from the A-list flocked Alabang Town Center and marveled an unparalleled program prepared for the guests.   Stands to be the newest anchor store of the premier ATC.   According to the executives, three more stores will be opened by the end of 2012.
I was one of the lucky guest who enjoyed the launching and seeing first-hand the fresh offerings of Metro Alabang.  My family and I are regulars at Metro Market! Market!   We enjoy facilities such as big fitting rooms were you can also lounge.  Wide shopping areas, organized cashiers and great unique finds for what ever needs we might have.   The same services are being implemented in the newest Metro store  but a wider array of quality merchandise coming from every part of the world and more interesting finds can be found here.
Metro  also boasts of the section called "Treasures of Cebu" featuring local yet one-of-a-kind accessories with export quality, by Avatar (Gil Carungay and Artizans), Binibini, and Tribal Crafts International.

For a more pleasurable shopping experience, Managing director for Metro Supermarket's Eric Poiret applies his broad experience from Supermarket chains in Europe and the the Middle East.   Imagine, 12,000 local products and 4,000 directly imported items, one can say, what else would you look for that's not in Metro supermarket?   Even a HORECA (Hotel, Restuarant, Catering) section is being maintained fairly.

How about a 'Taste of Europe' over a great cup of coffee, while your filling your grocery cart?  A wide selection of gourmet food-from the 180 cheeses and deli items to 200 different dine-in or take out choices, Metro Gourmet Deli and Coffee Shop would be a delight to diners with intimidating palate.   For the foodies who deserve something quite out of the ordinary, here is where you can find the real Foie Gras Au Torchon Mi-Cuit (delicately-cooked, wrapped in cloth).

Here is a bakeshop one must have a try at, for a professional baker from France was commissioned to develop each products meticulously prepared to suit one's taste.   Damien Deslandes is the Frenchman behind the delectable bread and pastry section, named Suisse Cottage.

Metro, a relative of the Gaisano Malls also hailed from Cebu and Davao, really brought pieces of Cebu here in Alabang.   Honest to goodness Cebu Lechon, enjoyed with 'puso' a rice packed in native pocket of coconut leaves, not to mention an array of Cebu delicacies as well.

A Pharmacy and Wine and Liquor shop is also in the basement.  If you happen to go hungry even before shopping are after, food establishments are just a few steps away.   Sbarro, Serenitea, Go Nuts Donuts and Starbucks are just some of the available.

Here are more photos from the Metro and the opening event.

  6. wow!! a new place to go to in Alabang.. thanks for sharing

  8. Looks very chic! Meron na namn bagong libangang sa Alabang.

  9. I have been to Metro Mall Global city in 2010.We did our shopping there and what I like is the parking Area,very convenient to shoppers. I definitely would go back to Metro Mall.

  10. Oh! another supermarket in the area. Certainly worth a visit.

  11. I was thinking where I've seen the 'metro' signage before reading the post, then it clicked: Metro Market! Market!

    Another supermarket for families to go to in Alabang :)

  12. this is cool! i feel alabang was not that much happening there though this came. it sounds really great going there! xx

  13. Knowing now that the owners are the same as those of Market, Market, I wished they would have designed the building to look something similar to it. It would have complemented the open air design of Alabang Town Center. I am quite intrigued with the supermarket, and how it will stack up against South Supermarket now.

  14. I heard they have affordable prices as well.
