Christmas is in the air, and everyone’s excited to go shopping, dine, and bond with the whole family, especially since kids are now allowed to go out. Most of us are still worried about the safety of being out and about, but SM Supermalls is making sure that all of us get to have a “merry” safe Christmas!
So worry not. Put on your pandemic safety gear and head off to your favorite SM mall because there are great reasons to feel confident and safe when getting your Christmas shopping done.
’Tis the season to be safer. For one, SM malls is relentless in rolling out its #SafeMallingAtSM campaign. This means that as government alert level restrictions slowly ease, SM is intensifying its safety protocols to ensure public health and safety, especially during the holiday rush. SM malls nationwide are disinfected thoroughly and regularly, especially in areas with heavy foot traffic, plus alcohol dispensers are deployed in strategic places. Meanwhile, all mallgoers are required to have their temperature checked at the mall entrances, wear their face masks and shields, and encouraged to practice social distancing at all times.
Find the Safety Seal. To date, 77 SM malls have been awarded the Safety Seal. This is no mean feat because it’s a voluntary certification that affirms that the establishment is compliant with the government’s public health standards and utilizes contact tracing with StaySafe.ph. Having the Safety Seal reasserts SM’s commitment to prioritize the health and well-being of its patrons.
Here comes “Santi” Claus. While he may not be one to come down the chimney to bring our gifts, this Santi the robot guarantees to always be around the deckedhalls of select SM malls to greet us and help ensure our health and well-being by sanitizing each and every area with an aerosol disinfectant that is 100 percent hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and non-corrosive.
Jabbed in time for Christmas! Have you received your vaccine yet? It’s time that you do, if you haven’t already done so! This year’s Christmas is looking better than last year as more Filipinos are getting vaccinated. SM is one with the government in helping achieve herd immunity as soon as possible to help protect the community and help the economy recover. Currently, over 5M jabs have been given at SM malls nationwide in partnership with the LGUs. Moreover, SM employees are 100% vaccinated! SM values the health and safety of their employees and the SM shoppers they serve.
All I want for Christmas is here. With all the essentials you need – from the latest gadgets, new home décor, your much-missed eats, and self-care sessions with a new hairstyle or manicure; to getting vaccinated, and even applying for government IDs — at SM, you really don’t have to go anywhere else to complete your Christmas shopping and tick off that to-do list of yours.

I’ll be home for Christmas. Still, if you decide to play it safe by opting to stay within the comfort of your own home, that’s fine, too, because SM still has us covered.
