8. There are seven SM Supermalls in China
Seeing SM Supermalls’ prominent logo in China may surprise Filipino tourists and overseas workers alike. But with the mall chain’s unparalleled success in the local retail landscape, taking the brand to international markets is the next logical step to ensure further growth. SM Supermalls debuted in the Chinese retail scene in 2001 with the opening of SM City Xiamen. Since then, the booming economy and welcoming market paved the way for their expansion across the country in the last two decades.
Today, there are seven SM Supermalls in China, including SM City Jinjiang, SM City Chengdu, SM City Suzhou, SM City Chongqing, SM City Zibo, and SM City Tianjin.
