Last May 28 I was one of the Bloggers that was invited to be a participant in The Great TUTUBAN MALL Back-To-School Challenge!
When someone says Tutuban you might get a reply “ah yung Tutuban sa Divisoria yun”, this is because Tutuban is in Divisoria. It’s one the biggest fully air-conditioned mall in the Divisoria area. It’s divided into three inter-connected tenanted buildings: The Cluster Building on the left-wing, the Primeblock on the right and the Tutuban Center Mall.
The Tutuban Mall offers “The Pinoy Shopping Experience” to every bargain hunters. It’s the place of bustling trade where shoppers are splurging to different merchandise and novelty items from sun rise to midnight, 365 days a year. It offers wide variety of new merchandise and services while providing excellent customer convenience and best value for money experience.
You can Love and Hate Divisoria, why????
Well going there is a bit challenge, but accessible, you can reach it by numerous numbers of public transportation and not to mention if you are from south you can always try our very own PNR (Philippine National Railroad). As always if you are going to Divisoria make sure just bring what you need but leave your valuables like gadgets and jewelries.
Bargain prices is the main reason why people go here, and Tutuban offer that same experience but with comfort and security inside the mall, not only that it’s a one stop shopping center.

That’s me with Ness of Say is Nessie
After an hour of searching the right supplies to buy I was able to fill this eco bag from Tutuban, ( I only own 1 bag, the other one is from Ness). The shopping inside papermart was a hassle free, these was someone who will assisted me on the things i needed.
Now these shoppers are really looking for good stuff to buy for their important young ones, I’m sure they are not only looking for quality goods but also with good prices that they can ask for discounts on bulk buys.
After the challenge, our guide from Tutuban Center treated us a merienda from Goldilocks.
