If you are planning to brave the crowded and narrow streets of Divisoria for your Christmas shopping this weekend, I suggest that you cancel your schedule and go straight to SM Megamall. Check out Mommy Lani’s (Tweensel Mom) photos of the toys on sale. I was not able to access my VIP slot (huhuhu!!!) so I lost my chance to score branded toy items at super low and discounted prices.
Here are the frequently asked questions and the official answers straight from the warehouse sale organizers:
