Davao City will have a full-service Robinsons Department Store located at Abreeza, the Ayala Center project here of Ayala Land and the Floriendo Group.
Clavel Tongco, Senior Division Head of Ayala Malls based in Cebu City told me that Robinsons Department Store would be the anchor department store at the Ayala Center Davao at Bajada.
She said Robinsons would build its own department store connected to the Abreeza Mall.
Robinsons recently opened a Cyber Center along JP Laurel but with limited space for stores and restaurants. The entire second level of the center is devoted to BPO business locators.
Tongco said the Ayala Center Davao is expected to open in mid 2011 with development cost topping P2.4 billion.
The Davao City Investment Incentive Board recently granted its application for local tax holidays.
