Marikina City Riverbanks Mall - Bargains And More

By: Nathalie Santos – Dayo

Looking for good quality items at an affordable price?

My suggestion, go to the Marikina City Riverbanks Mall, it’s just one jeepney ride away from Cubao or a one cab ride away from Libis.

The Riverbanks Mall

Inside this mall you can find almost everything and anything that you are looking for. The items are quite cheap, especially the shoes! Let me take you on a tour inside the mall.

Our first stop is the Riverbanks Off Price Department Store. This is the place to go to when you want to buy quality items at affordable prices.

They also have shoes, bags, sporting items, furniture and appliances which you can find at bigger department stores but without the more expensive price tag.

Shoe Gallery - Perfect Fit

If you are in need of a new pair of shoes, drop by the Shoe Gallery.

Go straight after going inside the main doors of the Mall and at the end of the hall, you will find all kinds of shoes under one roof.

The shoes sold in the Shoe Gallery are affordably priced but with high quality standards. The pair that I bought here lasted for more than a year.

Most of the shoes here are branded, Marikina made originals.

Did you get wet from the rain or by sweat from walking out in the sun too long?

Fashion Gallery

Visit the Fashion Gallery to find affordable articles of clothing, from simple jeans and tees to dresses, formal pants and jackets.

My husband and I bought a jacket each in the fashion gallery for only five hundred pesos each (Php500.00).

I enjoyed haggling with the sales lady who finally gave in to the price that we wanted.

I give in, I admit it, I’m a gadget freak! I have gone through so many phones in the last ten years that I completely forget all the models of mobile phones that I have ever owned.

You will find a haven in the Riverbanks Mall’s Cellphone Zone. Trade your old phone to buy a second hand unit or even a brand new unit.

You don’t have to spend too much just to stay in touch with family and friends.

And after the long walk and all the shopping, I always find myself hungry. When this happens, I go to the Mall’s Food Court.

There are a lot of stalls and food kiosks, so I always have a choice on where and what to eat.

Most of the time, I find my husband and myself ordering from Sisig Hooray! A food stall which sells different kinds of sisig, from the usual sizzling pork to chicken and fish. The meals are packed to go and it’s interesting that there’s no need for condiments except for a calamansi or two.

If you’re not in the mood to eat sisig, you can always go around and look for the right meal for you and your budget. Other places that you may want to try out are Jollibee, Tropical Hut Hamburger and Greenwich, all located by the entrance of the mall.

There are so many great finds in the Riverbanks Mall. Look around to find outlet stores of your favorite brands like Nike, World Balance, Folded and Hung and Sports Basic Airwalk among others.

My personal favorite shops would include Savemore Supermarket, Timex Watches and of course Photoline, a store that I go to when I want to canvass prices for my photography needs. One more shop that I love going to is the Japan Surplus Shop, this is where I buy my laundry needs like detergents, fabric conditioner and some office supplies, their prices do not go beyond one hundred pesos and that’s definitely a steal!
