There is a new outlet mall in Cavite, I’ve been it itching to go to since last year. I have hinted on it with my family, but my brother said there is nothing special about the place. So he said, no way. Anyhow, a couple of weeks back, me, Bekka and my niece have had the chance to check it out.
It was a very fine day, when we drove to Acienda Designers Outlet Mall, in Silang Cavite. My first thought as we approached the place was it was like a replica of the outlet malls in California. The building was just one story open space with lots of parking space. We parked near the entrance.
Like in any mall, there was a security check as you enter the mall area. My cousin was asked not to put down her fur baby since he was not wearing a doggy diaper. Not a problem. The first thing that greeted us was the sight of standing bikes at the center of the promenade. The photographer in me just couldn’t resist taking some pictures. After a couple of shots, we headed inside an Activewear Store, unfortunately, we were not allowed to bring the dog inside. So, we had to go in two shifts to look around. There were a lot of good selections of clothes and shoes with reasonable clearance prices.
We browsed and window shopped around each store. All of us were able to buy a few items in some stores here and there. We even got a free massage. The place was not yet fully occupied with stores, and it was not overly crowded. The ambiance was nice, no loud sounds, open, clean and ample walking paths. My only worry was how it was during the rainy season. Most of the stores were on the internationally branded sports and activewear lines with just a few electronic gadgets and bags. Food stalls were on the lower basement and just a very few seat-in cafes and restaurants.
Also, as you walk along you would see some miniature iconic structures, like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Eiffel Tower, an English Telephone Booth, a Windmill, etc. which was instagram worthy. There were families and tourists doing the same as us… Going in and out. Pictures here and there.
All in all, this outlet mall has potential. I don’t mind dropping by when I’m in the area.
Note: Acienda Designers Outlet Mall is located at Km. 48 Emilio Aguinaldo Highway Silang, Cavite
