Bicol netizens fired up with mall constructions in Naga and Legazpi
Bicol netizens on social media sites are so fired up with the news and non-news of mall constructions, etc., in and around the cities of Naga and Legazpi.
Hurling each other with verbal abuse, unbecoming of a Bicolano, when there is no cause and concern for disagreement. Mere knowledge of first information on the location and update about the mall(s) is of no value at all.
It is a no brainer by trying to edge each other out on information and hearsay about the prospects and plans of big time capital and monopolists from the national capital region of project developments locating in the provincial cities.
News circulate fast that three new malls in Naga, and perhaps more, will rise, one along Roxas Avenue, more known as Maharlika highway diversion road, at the corner of Almeda bypass highway. The structure to rise is the proposed Robinson’s Place Naga.
Manuela Corportion of failed presidential candidate Sen. Manny Villar will construct the Starmall shopping complex along the Del Rosario portion of the Maharlika, beside the new SSS building to be precise.
This is not to discount that Gaisano Mall along Panganiban Avenue, fronting the Bicol Medical Center is wrapping its construction phase.
Naga city is currently the host to SM City Naga, LCC Naga, 2 Puregold outlets, and E-Mall with Robinsons Supermarket.
Legazpi is home to LCC and Gaisano Malls with one more under construction under the Ayala(?) brand.
In the long run, employment opportunities for Bicols will gravitate on business process outsourced desk/info personnel, retail sales clerk, bagger, food server, menial, manual semi-temporary and casual jobs, when more of the ready workforce are graduates of four and five year courses.
Quo vadis graduates and passers of nursing courses, education, accountancy, etc?
