    SM Mall Hours Holy Week 2014

    UPDATED: April 2014

    Tutubi knows most people will leave Metro Manila during Holy Week, but this time, he won't be one of them in escaping the summer sun of the metropolis to the beach or Visita Iglesia outside Mega Manila. He intends to stay in the big city probably to drive around to enjoy traffic-free thoroughfares.

    He asked around friends for schedules of SM Malls operation in Metro Manila, perticularly SM City North EDSA and SM Megamall where his friends work.

    Only SM Baguio is really open for business during Holy Week

    Herewith is the Updated latest Schedules of SM Mall Hours Schedule for Holy Week 2014:

    At Apr 7, 2012, 12:00:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    the updated latest schedule for 2012 apparently wrongly mentions the year 2011, ... but according to DATES and DAYS indications it is obvious that 2011 should read 2012

    At Apr 7, 2012, 12:03:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    in the 2012 updated schedule obviously in each line 2011 reads 2012
