For three straight days, long lines of crowds gathered in front of Centrio Mall hoping to avail of the promos given by Rustan’s Fresh as part of its opening treats.
Below are photos taken yesterday, the last day of the 3-day promo. Majority wanted to avail of the rice promo (buy a pack of 5 kg rice for P216, and get additional 5 kg pack for free) which translates to 10 kilos of rice for about P20/kg. Other promos include buy 1 take 1 treats on cooking oil, grapes, canned goods, frozen meat, and many others.
The long lines you see were taken at around 8:15AM. Rustan’s was set to open at 9:00AM yesterday. Some of those who got first in line were there before 7:00AM.
An ambulance is on stand by in case of emergencies.
At around 9:00AM, Rustan’s officially opened for the day. To avoid the rush, security personnel only allowed some 10 to 15 people at a time.
The lines reached as far as National Bookstore at the Corrales Avenue end of Centrio Mall.
Even this foreigner waited in line – it’s more fun in Cagayan de Oro.
…a smile for those who got first.
Meanwhile, at the basement, the Rustan’s entrance is also closed and set to open at 10:00AM.
Inside, the crowd gathered at the bodega door of the supermarket for the rice promo.
Just some of the treat…
The rice promo ended at past 9:30AM as supply was already exhausted.
