The SM Store
SM had its beginnings in 1958, when Mr. Henry Sy Sr. opened the first Shoemart Store in Rizal Ave., in downtown Manila. The store boasted of good quality merchandise, innovative visual display, and creative salesmanship – things that were unheard of in those days. Through these factors, SM was able to gain a loyal following of customers, which opened doors for its growth. The Company expanded its shoe store chain in the sixties to accommodate the increasing demands of its customers.
As a natural transition, SM added Ready-To-Wear apparel into its lineup, when it converted into a soft-goods store in 1972, with the opening of SM Quiapo. Three years after, the store began carrying a complete set of items – from wears to shoes to accessories to house wares, stationery and a lot more. This happened with the opening of SM Makati, SM’s first full-line Department Store.
The concept was so well received by customers, that all the succeeding stores that were opened were all full-line department stores. 1980 saw the opening of SM Cubao and in 1984, SM Harrison opened its doors to the public.
In 1985, the time was ripe for yet another milestone. Realizing that the need of customers go beyond shopping, SM changed the retailing landscape when it opened its first mall-based store – SM North EDSA. In spite of the economic and political turmoil engulfing the country at the time, SM bravely beat the odds and began the malling phenomenon in the country.
Today The SM Store has grown to a dynamic group of stores which lead the pack in the retail industry. In Metro Manila alone, 15 branches are scattered across the metropolis. These are Cubao, North EDSA and Fairview in the north. Makati, Harrison, Ortigas, Las Piñas, Bacoor, Bicutan, Sucat, and Bay City in the south. In the heart of the city, we have Quiapo, Sta. Mesa, Manila, and San Lazaro.
Also, the SM Corporate Offices are located at the SM Central Business Park in Bay City, Pasay. SM has put up branches around the archipelago to extend it’s unwavering service to all Filipinos. In Northern Luzon, there’s Pampanga, Baguio, Marilao, and the newly-opened branch in Clark, Pampanga. Southern Luzon is the home of SM Lucena, Damariñas, Batangas, Sta. Rosa and Lipa. In the Visayas, we have branches in Cebu, Mandurriao and Delgado. In Mindanao, there’s SM Davao and Cagayan De Oro
Soon to open SM branches include Bacolod, Taytay and Tarlac. In line with the company’s thrust to further expand our operations overseas, SM has been on Guam for about 2 years now.
