    I think it must be the carnival type atmosphere, something for almost everyone because most of their products can be had elsewhere for less, sometimes much less.
    But one would have to drive all over the province to obtain everything SM carries, so it does save time and gas to shop there.
    I have been in a Tesco (I think it was in Texas) and I did like the prices and amount of stock they had, good store overall and better than Walmart (Chinamart) for sure.

    I heard SM was just going to put in a grocery store...the SaveMore, I guess? This came from the owner of a bank here in town, so take it for what it's worth........I personally will just take a "wait and see" attitude.

    I think it will be at the under construction IT Park near Villa Amada ukay ukay...It will be like the LP Hypermart in Bagacay, perhaps with Watsons and Ace Hardware. But I believe SM will eventually put up a mall here in Dumaguete...

    Aside from this:

    SM Supermalls gipanglantawan nga makasulod sila sa Dumaguete karong tuiga

    Padayon ang pagtubo ang ekonomiya sa dakbayan sa Dumaguete subay sa pagsulod sa mga negosyante nga nibutang sa ilang investment dinhi.

    Dili pa lamang dugay personal nga nibisita ang mga kadagkuan sa SM Supermalls sa buhatan ni Mayor Chikiting Sagarbarria diin gihisgutan ang planong pagsulod dinhi sa Dumaguete.

    Matud ni Mayor Sagarbarria adunay gihimo nga survey ang SM Prime Holdings Incorporated kinsa maoy tag-iya sa SM Supermalls sa pagsusi sa buying power sa dakbayan sa Dumaguete.

    Sumala sa Mayor nagtuo siya nga nagka-umento ang buying power sa
    Dumaguete tungod sa pagsulod sa mga bag-ong negosyante dinhi sa dakbayan. Gani nakita niya nga gawas sa pagsulod sa mga negosyante nidaghan usab ang mga bag-ong buildings nga gipangtukod.

    Hinuon matud niya ang giplanohan sa SM nga posibleng mo-invest sila sa Dumaguete apan Department store nga sama sa lee plaza ug cang department store.

    Nangita karon ug lugar ang SM Prime Holdings nga mopasar sa standard requirement sa ilang tindahan nga anaa sa sentro sa Siyudad.

    Ang dakbayan sa Dumaguete maoy sentro sa negosyo sa Negros oriental gumikan nga dinhi man manukad ang mga torista ug bisita paingon sa ubang mga destinasyon sa lalawigan ug silingang probinsya.

    Gani gawas niini motuyo usab ug anhi sa DUmaguete ang mga taga Siquijor, part sa Cebu ug Negros Occidental tungod nga mas duol man kon anhi sila sa Dumaguete mangompra sa ilang panginahanglanon.

    For none Cebuano speaking individuals, this news item says that SM officials visited the Dumaguete Mayor recently to discuss the plan to put up a department store within the Dumaguete downtown area this year as big as the local department stores Lee Plaza and Cangs Shopping Complex. Earlier, it was announced by the Dumaguete City Administrator that SM Savemore would open at the under construction IT Park near St Paul's University here...

    This news apparently is that of an earlier visit by SM officials

    SM Mall in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental

    With the perceived growing economic atmosphere in Dumaguete City, the capital of Negros Oriental, the country’s largest shopping mall chain has signified its intent to penetrate the city’s market although there are no definite plans yet, said Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria.

    Mayor Sagarbarria disclosed that representatives of SM Supermalls, owned by SM Prime Holdings, Inc., had visited the city and met with him about three months ago in an apparent move to check out the feasibility of setting up business here.

    The mayor said that SM Supermalls wants to look for a location in Dumaguete where they can initially build not the usual shopping malls first but a grocery store to test the purchasing power of the constituents of Dumaguete and the province of Negros Oriental.

    Sagarbarria also said he has no idea where the location of the SM store will be, as there has been no follow-up yet with the visitors from the said mall chain.

    The Dumaguete chief executive, however, said he believes that the purchasing power of Dumaguete and Negros Oriental residents has gone up, as can be seen with the entry of the first-ever shopping mall here, the Robinsons’ Place.

    People from nearby areas like Siquijor, parts of Cebu province facing Negros Oriental, and parts of Negros Occidental that are much closer to Dumaguete than Bacolod City, are frequently coming here.
