    SM Supercenter Dumaguete
    SM Supercenter Dumaguete is one of the newest SM City Malls and is set to open in year 2012. It will be located at Mangnao District, South National Road.

    Exact quote from the news board in SM Mall in SM City, Cebu.
    Make of it what you will, but the office here insists they are pushing the construction of this store through regardless of what any naysayers have to say on the matter.

    How could that be their supposed to be lot at the back of the Mangnao elementary school was already converted into a subdivision...The only lot that remains now is the one at the back of Gimmick in Daro Claytown..

    By the way, the SM Savemore at the under construction Qualfon IT park in front of the ukay ukay in Villa Amada I think is already a done deal as it was already announced by the City administrator. This will not, in anyway, jeopardize the putting up of an SM mall. In many cities, they have SM Savemore/Hypermarket and a mall at the same time...

    I don't know how that could be actually, this is just what the store is telling their customers here in Cebu.
    Maybe they are trying to boost sales somehow by broadcasting a lot of new construction projects.
    I never really understood their marketing techniques.

    How OR Why?

    :confused: Well Bruce, How It works is easy, they sell the right thing, at the right price, money in the Till. Why it works is an different thing? That's the Magic of merchandising. If we understood this, we would be, as successful as they are.:wink: AND successful they are, No Doubts about that at all.

    TESCO (UK Supermarket)

    :smile: In the 1950's late, A certain Mr Cohen, decided that the corner Shop in the UK was at it's last Ebb (Not Always the case) he decided to name the store he bought, in Hertfordshire (England) TESSA & CO (TESCO) after his then Wife, his motto was " Stack it High and sell it Cheap" his idea was, sell 1000 cans of Baked beans at 26p and a Penny profit and I have 1000 pence profit. Sell 100 cans at 30p at 4 pence profit and I only make 400 pence profit. Most people will always go for the cheaper price for the Same product. Tesco is the 4th largest Supermarket in the UK and has Branches all over the World. That is Good marketing. In Modern wording and technology, this is called lost leaders. Once the store has you in there, you are their audience. makes Sense to me. I Do believe that SM have the same or similar idea. :wink:
