Globe myBusiness rallies consumers to #SupportLocalSMEs at SM Premier Malls’ Christmas Night Market

Published Dec 10, 2020 1:40 am

Christmas is here and no matter how different the celebrations may be, it will definitely not hinder the spirit of giving and festive cheer among Filipinos.

For its annual Gift Local campaign, Globe myBusiness encourages everyone to give a little more meaning to the season by shopping and dining locally to support SMEs.

As part of this campaign, Globe myBusiness partnered with SM Premier Malls for their Christmas Night Market where locally curated products from SMEs are available for purchase. Since the onset of the pandemic in the country, SM Premier Malls have also been supporting SMEs and local businesses by waiving rental fees, providing financial relief to their suppliers, and even partnering with jeepney and tricycle drivers to deliver goods.

With a wide range of SME partners — from farming to artisan communities, from local manufacturers to shop owners, from food kiosks to restaurant owners — SM has become a community for SMEs.

“As SMEs are the backbone of the economy, they are also the backbone of our business, that is why we made it a mission to support SMEs, even before the pandemic, during the ECQ, and now as we kick-start the economy,” said SM Supermalls.

Whether it’s a gift for your loved ones or for yourself, you will surely find amazing and unique choices from different local merchants at the Christmas Night Market.

WIth no minimum purchase required from Globe myBusiness, shoppers also have a chance to win prizes at the Christmas Night Market until Dec. 20. Curation of locally sourced products and goods from merchants are available at the Gift Local booth where you must scan a QR code to get a chance to win Globe myBusiness items via raffle draw. This is exclusive to participating SM Premier malls, namely SM North Edsa, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, SM Aura, and SM Southmall.

For those living in Mindanao, you can also shop for gifts from local brands and SME pop-up stores at SM Lanang Premier, SM City Davao, SM General Santos, SM City Cagayan de Oro, and SM CDO Downtown Premier; and get a chance to win P10,000 GCash shopping money with a minimum purchase requirement of P500 single receipt. This promo runs until Dec. 31.

“We have always rallied the Filipino consumers to patronize local establishments and help Filipino SMEs, especially during the holiday season. This year’s Gift Local campaign will serve an even greater purpose, as we feature the products of our SME partners that will delight Filipino consumers for their gift-giving celebration, while supporting our local SMEs in these challenging times,” said Globe myBusiness strategy and marketing head Maridol Ylanan.

When shopping and dining outside, make sure to observe safety protocols all the time. You can also join the Gift Local Social Promo just by submitting a photo of yourself wearing a face mask and a face shield while shopping or dining locally and upload it here. Post your photo on your social media pages with the hashtags #SupportLocalSMEs #GiftLocal #TuloyAngPasko. Five winners will be chosen every week and will receive P1,000 GCash credits.
