SM Cares and Safeguard Providing #SafeMallingAtSM

For the first time since March, hubby and I went out to do our grocery shopping and pay our bills at SM North. Even if there's a SM hypermarket that is just walking distance from home, we still go at SM North because it's complete. Aside from paying the bills at SM Bills Payment, I had to quickly go to SM Appliances to get an affordable stand mixer for baking. We had lunch at Chili's located at the first floor of SM The Block afterwards.

There was a short queue before we were allowed to get inside the supermarket but nevertheless, there are chairs for customers waiting in line. Before you enter the supermarket, you were encourage to apply disinfectant on your hands. It's readily available at the entrance. I bought veggies and fresh produce including fish and meat. Compared before, now they already provided liquid soap at the lavatory sink located at the fish section.

“Safeguard, being 54 years in the country, has become much of a household name. From our beige bar soap from long ago to our hand sanitizers and liquid hand soap now, we have always committed ourselves to serve the needs of the Filipino people, just like SM has. And in the same way, I believe that both have been ingrained so much in Filipino culture that it is only natural to do this partnership,” said Procter & Gamble Vice President for Skin & Personal Care Ms. Shweta Sharma.
