SM launched its 60th Anniversary celebrations by lighting up the iconic Mall of Asia globe, and with it, starting off a series of exciting 60 themed visual attractions, fun experiences, and interactive activities for its customers from May to October in SM malls nationwide.


The SM story began in 1958 when founder Henry Sy, Sr. opened the first Shoemart store in downtown Manila, introducing exciting new merchandising and retailing concepts.  At that time, Mr. Sy, who has been honored as the Father of Philippine Retail by the Philippine Retailers Association, thought that if he could sell a pair of shoes to every Filipino, he could be a successful man.


In the 1960s, Shoemart expanded its shoe store chain and became one of the pioneers in the new urban centers in Makati and Cubao.


In the seventies, Shoemart evolved into a department store, becoming SM, which has been synonymous with one-stop shopping excitement. SM positioned itself for growth in the 1980s, expanding its department store chain and venturing in the supermarket and appliance business.


1985 saw the opening of the first SM shopping center, SM City North EDSA.  It was a time of a major political and economic crisis, but the mall was an instant success, paving way for the so-called malling phenomenon in the Philippines.  Malls became part of the Filipino lifestyle, places where families and friends could shop together, dine together, and have fun together in world class surroundings.


Today, SM has close to a thousand retail stores, and 70 malls in the Philippines, and 7 malls in China.


Through its property arm, SM Prime Holdings, SM has also become a leading developer of residential condominiums in Metro Manila, where residents could live like a star at affordable prices.


Mr. Sy always believed in tourism as a catalyst, and with that, built destination malls like the SM Mall of Asia.  Through SM Hotels and Conventions, the company now owns and operates world class hotels, a state of the art arena, convention and exhibition centers, and premier beach and mountain resorts.

In the finance area, the acquisition of Banco de Oro in the 1980s enabled SM to provide better cash management services to its suppliers and retail banking services to its customers.  Today, as the country’s largest bank in terms of resources, deposits, and loans, BDO has made finance inclusive for millions of Filipinos.


Through SM Foundation, SM reaches out to communities with its educational, health, and livelihood training programs aimed at making farmers self-sufficient. Through SM Cares, SM has undertaken environmental programs by building green spaces in its malls, as well as sustainability efforts, trash to cash recycling, and disaster risk reduction programs.  It has also make going around the malls easier for those with difficulties through PWD program.

4(1)Give the children of Marawi the gift of reading this year with The SM Store’s Donate-a-Book campaign.
It can be remembered that the five-month-long siege in Marawi affected thousands of children’s lives. Some schools were destroyed while children have no longer access to education and can’t afford basic learning materials like books and school supplies.

Reading is known as a powerful tool for healing – as it helps the mind to find its peaceful place.  This is because books are motivating, inspirational and give a vision of human strength. Help the children of Marawi overcome difficulties and dream again with the Gift of Reading.

In this joint project of The SM Store and SM Stationery, booths have been set up in all The SM Store branches nationwidee. Shoppers can now have the chance to donate new books, pre-loved books and brand new school supplies set from May 1, 2018 to June 30, 2018.

Each donation entitles a customer with a Php 50 discount coupon which can be redeemed for every minimum Php 500 single-receipt purchase on regular-priced items from the SM Stationery at The SM Store. Coupons are valid until May 1, 2019.


Donate-A-Book is one of the ways The SM Store and its customers work together to do their share for the less fortunate. The joy it brings the recipients is priceless as it can in the Alabang Elementary School and the Tanza Elementary School. And your donation will certainly bring smiles to the children of Marawi.


Other projects are Share Your Extras, Gamot Para Sa Kapwa and the upcoming Share-A-Toy campaign.



Together we can tackle this Global crisis
