Bata Philippines Shoe Store Opens at SM Megamall

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The celebration started out with a series of flash mobs all over the SM Megamall. Models and Dancers (from Teens to Kids) were all suddenly coming at certain areas of the mall and showcasing their outfits, specifically their shoes, to attract customers who seem surprised and couldn't figure out what it was all for.

But the flash mobs were intentionally orchestrated to point to the large stage at the ground floor of the SM Fashion Fashion Hall where Bata Philippines has setup the area for a grand launch of the global shoe store brand. Finally we have in the Philippines the footwear provider that has been very popular in so many countries around the world.

These flash mobs were repeatedly done at different areas including the stage at the Fashion Hall ground were the models and dancers performed their routine moves to continuously excite the shoppers of what is about to happen at the grand launch which happens that day at around 4 pm on December 2, 2016. 

Thank you to the SM Retail of SM Supermalls for finally bringing Bata here in the Philippines.

Aside from the models and teen dancers, the most prominent scene stealers were the Kiddowockeez, a group of young kids, who were all great in dancing. Named after the award-winning but older group Jabbawockeez, these kids are impressive in their dance moves.

After a few hours of program attended by media, bloggers and celebrities, everyone was invited to go to the actual store located at the 3rd level so we can actually see and touch the shoe products worn by the models and dancers.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony, participated in by top executives of Bata and SM Retail, took place infront of the store before everyone was welcomed in.

There is a wide array of brands to choose from that were said to be of high quality standards and materials. The prices are reasonable and may be a lot more competitive than what we currently have in the country.

Celebrities like Sam Milby, Danica Sotto-Pingris, Antoinette Taus, Shamcey Supsup, and a lot more models and influencers were there to experience what Bata is known for. Like the, I also bought my own pair of shoes with the Weinbrenner brand, one of the many brands the Bata shoe store carries.

Congratulations to Bata Philippines for a very successful grand launch. More power to SM for this business endeavor.
