Safe, merry shopping this season

If you still want to shop this Christmas, REBPH enumerates these four malls in Metro Manila that have revolutionized the shopping experience by infusing health and safety protocols that every shopper must comply with.

Christmas–and New Year–celebrations this year will be a whole lot different from what we are accustomed to. We will have to do without the usual parties and big get-togethers for everybody’s safety but that should not dampen our Christmas spirit. Many shopping destinations are going the extra mile to ensure that, despite the pandemic, Filipinos can still go about their Christmas preparations safely and feel the joy of the season, albeit virtually.



HealthBadge makes Christmas shopping at Power Plant Mall fast and convenient.

Power Plant Mall

Get your Christmas errands done in a flash while practicing physical distancing with Power Plant Mall’s The Rockwellist mobile app. It’s a mall directory, credit card vault, mobile wallet, fast parking assistant and restaurant booking app in one stylish package.

You can map out your shopping trip through its list of shops and establishments, securely pay for your purchases, do away with the queue at the parking cashier and skip the long lines at select restaurants. As a mobile wallet, The Rockwellist also offers rewards and cashbacks in participating shops. It also keeps a record of your purchases, allowing you to stay within your Christmas budget. Download The Rockwellist mobile app for free on your mobile phone via App Store or Google Play.

By now, we’re pretty sure you’ve filled out more contact tracing forms than you can remember. While this is of course a necessary procedure these days, we cannot deny the fact how this can be a bother.

Power Plant Mall makes shopping more seamless via the HealthBadge. Shoppers only need to register at contacttracin Therockwellist.com to get their own unique QR codes which will be scanned prior to entering any store. No more filling up endless contact tracing forms as you hop from one shop to another.

The Chapel of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the official chapel of Rockwell Center, will be holding anticipated Simbang Gabi starting Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. As the number of attendees need to be limited per Mass, slot reservations are necessary via rockwellchapel.com. Those who want to attend Simbang Gabi from the safety of their homes may also do so as Masses will be livestreamed on their Facebook page, officialrockwellchapel.
