The day that practically most of Soccsksargen have been waiting for is here – the Grand Opening of the region’s newest and most anticipated mall – the Robinsons Place General Santos City!

Slated to open tomorrow October 5, 2009 (Monday) to showcase its flagship stores, the Robinsons Department Store, the Robinsons Supermarket, the Handyman and Robinsons Appliance Center, the management of taipan Gokongwei’s biggest investment in Mindanao has made sure that it will be their most star-studded inauguration ever!

"The FLYER for the GRAND OPENING of Robinsons Place Gen. Santos City.

Tasked to host the 11am Grand Opening Ceremony tomorrow at the Activity Area is former MTV VJ and current host of the ABS-CBN morning show, “Umagang Kay Ganda“, Donita Rose.

Donita’s job will be tough because not only will the “generals” be there to witness how she handles this much-awaited event but also dignitaries from Manila.


The entourage could include the owners Robina Gokongwei-Pe and her brother Lance Gokongwei. Bariles is  not certain though if their old man will be there.  Ms. Robina (to whom this chain of malls were named after) was here last year during the baptism of Manny Pacquiao’s daughter Queenie and Bariles was even able to chat with her.  (Read the Post by Clicking here.)

Together with Ms. Donita Rose and to serenade the who’s who of  GenSan invited to the Grand Opening Ceremony is balladeer Christian Bautista who just released an album of Jose Mari Chan’s songs.

Later on, at 3pm fans will have a chance to MEET and GREET Ms. Dawn Zulueta at the Robinsons Department Store.

An hour later at 4pm, Kapuso star Yasmien Kurdi will also delight shoppers at the Robinsons Supermarket.

But that is not all, generals!

Next weekend, we will all have our hands full ogling at the presence of Derek Ramsay on October 10 at 4pm and Ms. Iza Calzado on October 11 at 4pm.

Wow!  Bariles can’t wait for these events to happen at Robinsons Place GenSan and he is pretty damn sure that you too are much excited as he is.

In fact, he is betting his two balls that he will see you there!!!!
