Mandaluyong-based Shangri-La Plaza mall has reopened its doors with several dining and retail outlets back in operation.
Following the latest Inter-Agency Task Force guidelines for the modified enhanced community quarantine, the mall is operating daily within slightly reduced business hours, from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Proper protection measures are currently in place to ensure the health and safety of both mall guests and employees. Mandatory temperature checks at all entrances; automatic hand sanitizer dispensers available in restrooms and other key areas; and regular rigorous sanitation around the mall are some of the new measures implemented.
In addition, all mall guests and employees are required to wear a face mask while within the premises.
Shangri-La Plaza has installed social distancing markers and reminders on floors, escalators (steps marked in blue dots to mind required distance between users), and elevators (allowing only four people at a time and with priority for PWDs). Guideline reminders are present in bathrooms, parking areas, concierge, and Food Forum; sanitation and unavailable areas are clearly marked to inform mall guests.
A number of retail outlets, essential stores, restaurants, and services are open, and expected to increase, Shangri-La said, as Metro Manila eases into MECQ.
Currently open are food and beverage outlets KFC, Max’s, Pepper Lunch, Quickly, Sbarro, Starbucks, Via Mare, Waffle Time, Wendy’s, Wobbly Pan, and Yi Fang at the Main Wing; California Pizza Kitchen and Macao Imperial at the East Wing; and Pizza Hut at the North Wing.
Supermarkets and essential stores Rustan’s Marketplace, Healthy Options, and 7-Eleven; and health clinics and drugstores like American Eye Center, Healthway, Mercury Drug, and Watsons are also open, together with banks and service outlets BPI (levels 1 and 5 at the Main Wing), Besa’s, Cebuana Lhuiller, Fone Kard Station, and IFX Foreign Exchange, as well as all ATM machines.
