Has SM finally decided to solidly call Urdaneta City, home?
These photos show the big blue fences along McArthur Highway (Across CB Mall) that mark the start of a huge construction in the area. It will be the site of SM 2 while SM 1 will be in the much larger SM property in Brgy Anonas.
A reliable source had advised that the ground-breaking ceremonies were to be held last September 16, 2016 but was postponed. The official SM career website even shows openings for the Urdaneta branch.
It has been a 10-year rumor that SM had chosen this Eastern Pangasinan city to be part of its expansion plans in Northern Luzon, stirring excitement among the citizens. Back in 2008, to the disappointment of many Urdanetans, SM decided to build a Hypermarket in Carmen, Rosales which eventually became a full mall.
