Grand sale, fantastic deals for diners and shoppers
Just across Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is Newport City, with the Newport Mall as the main structure for leisure, shopping, dining and entertainment.
Made readily accessible for departing and arriving passengers from the country’s premier airport complex via the 220-meter elevated bridge Runway Manila, the mall adjacent to Resorts World has reopened following weeks of lockdown after the unfortunate events of June 2.
To mark its comeback, the establishment mounts the “rediscovery welcome treat” until July 31 where visitors can avail of as much as 70-percent discount from Newport’s popular dining establishments and shopping brands like Guess, Victoria’s Secret, Puma, Tommy Hilfiger, Hush Puppies, Charles & Keith, Michael Antonio, Coalition, La Senza, Call It Spring and iconic Filipino brand Bench.
“Newport Mall has always been known as one of the most exciting destinations in Metro Manila for shopping, dining and entertainment and we are excited to open our doors again. What better way to welcome back our guests than with a big sale and other fantastic treats that they can only enjoy here,” Newport Mall operations manager Mikee Vivo enthused at the grand reopening.
Vivo added that since the soft reopening on June 15, they had already regained 50-percent of foot traffic and expected the vibrancy of the mall in full gear by the end of July.
