Gaisano is the newest mall to open in our city. It belongs to a chain just like Robinson's and ShoeMart malls but mostly they sprout up in the Visayas and Mindanao.
It's located just south of downtown Bacolod and should cater to the needs of people in that area and will help decongest human and auto traffic in Robinson's which is at the north of the city.
There are a lot of good restaurants in the first floor and the nice thing about it is the fact that they're all local favorites such as Bob's, L'Sea (chinese), and Chicken Deli (famous Bacolod barbecued chicken).
What to buy: Gaisano Dept. Store sells items of lower quality but they have a little bit of everything and there's a huge supermarket, too.
The best thing about this new mall is the opening of the first National Bookstore in my city. That alone makes a trip to this mall worth my time.

They're now in a warehouse about 10 mins out of Bacolod and it houses both their workshop and offices with some of their finished products. Don't expect to see a show window...these people seriously export their furniture and don't need a showroom for locals.
I first met the owner, Nora Lamata, 7 years ago when I was furnishing a house I had just bought and needed a unique bed. They designed something specific to what I wanted. A year after, my mother had some major remodelling to do after a fire in the house and she asked Far East Bamboo to make some new pieces.
The craftsmanship is excellent and the bamboo comes from the owner's family farm.
What to buy: Furniture and home decor

So far the only "big" mall we have but we have other mini malls. It's got 6 movie theaters, a video arcade, lots of places to eat, and a pretty good mix of stores selling clothing, shoes, houseware, computers, etc.

Along Lacson St. around the corner of San Sebastian, there are 3 fruit stands that you just can't miss if you're driving by.
On any given day, you can buy an assortment of tropical fruits depending on what's in season.
What to buy: In the pic are durian from Davao, mangosteen, rambutan, lanzones (long gong in Thailand), papayas and guavas.
What to pay: If the fruits arrive just before the official start of its season, expect to pay 20-50pesos more than you should when the fruit is in abundance.
If the fruit isn't locally grown like pomelos and durian, they'll also be slightly more expensive than if you were buying it from the island source.
Nevertheless, for most foreigners, paying $1 for a kilo (2.2lbs) of ripe green mangoes from Guimaras would be a bargain. Bananas are always in season and we have different varieties from the small senoritas to the big cavendish. My favorite kind would be what we call tordan (latondan) which is mid-sized and the flesh is whiter and tastes milder.

It is in their main store, which is in Alijis-Murcia Road, where they have their bakery and you can buy hot piaya from there. They also have branches in Corner Alunan, Araneta St. in downtown Bacolod, SM City and Robinson's Place.
