Geeky finds at Great Northern Sale of SM North EDSA

P7138712
This is my late blog post coverage for the Great Northern Sale of SM City North EDSA. Its my first time to shop here under the label of Great Northern Sale, my first ever sale here was the first one day midnight sale of SM City North EDSA years ago, I think SM CIty North EDSA was 5 years old when they organized that sale, I remember that we hoarded lots of stuff toys in Gift Gate and parents bought some items for the master’s bed room. This year, the Great Northern Sale is the icon of mall sale here in the Philippines, because they give a great buzz about the sale and hey! SM City North EDSA is the biggest mall here in the Philippines and 3rd largest in the world.

I missed the first 2 days of the Great Northern Sale, my plan is to visit day 1 and day 2 but my schedule is mixed up and got the time to visit the mall on its 3rd and final day. I went there at around 1pm and the flow of people is quite okay. First scene that I saw is at The Block, lots of clothing brand set up a small kiosk in the middle of the hallway and showed up their big price tag to let everyone know that they are on sale.

The Gourmet Card is one of the awesome reward for shoppers this Great Northern Sale, the card let you get an automatic discount and freebies to any participating restaurants in SM City North EDSA. The card comes with a booklet or catalog that can guide you the freebie and discount of each restaurants. The card is free for everyone and all you need to do is line up to the redemption booth and claim one free card.

Going to the heart of the mall which is the old City Center building, I saw a jam packed of people already coming in and makes the hall so crowdy, I walked so fast just to reach the department store and see what I can buy in that day.

My view from the 2nd floor, all store and brands created a small set up outside their stores just to give way more space to the buyers to check the sale items.

My target that day is to buy my interests – clothes and geeky stuff like toys, gadgets, toys, comics, toys, and more toys.
