Lucky Chinatown has recently been granted a Safety Seal recognition by the Manila city government, making it the first mall in Manila’s Chinatown district to be recognized for its adherence to minimum health and safety standards.
Situated at the heart of Binondo, Manila, one of the world’s oldest Chinatowns, Lucky Chinatown is a full-scale lifestyle mall that offers a unique blend of history, tradition and modern shopping, and world-class leisure experience.
Manila City administrator Felixberto Espiritu, along with the city’s Bureau of Permits officer-in-charge Levi Facundo, officially conferred the recognition to Lucky Chinatown to Megaworld Lifestyle Malls head of marketing and business development Tefel Pesigan-Valentino and Lucky Chinatown regional mall manager Joy Militante.
“We are grateful and honored to receive a Safety Seal from the government, as this will help boost the confidence of the mall-going public and encourage support for local brands and businesses,” says Megaworld Lifestyle Malls head Graham Coates.
Local governments and the DILG issue the Safety Seal certification to buildings and establishments compliant with the Minimum Public Health Standards (MPHS) set by the government and use or integrate its contact tracing with StaySafe.ph.
“This is a testament to our partnership with local businesses and the local government in ensuring compliance with health and safety protocols, as we provide the public with a safer and happier shopping experience,” Graham adds.
The four-level, 108,000-sq.m. shopping mall is envisioned as a heritage project that promotes Binondo’s tradition of commerce and tourism during modern times. It was awarded the Shopping Center of the Year by the Philippine Retailers Association in 2015.
Megaworld Lifestyle Malls continue strict safety standards to ensure a safer and happier mall experience for its guests. Recently, the company bagged Gold and Silver Stevie Awards at the prestigious Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards 2020 for its #SaferandHappier campaign, which advocates for mall safety as a shared responsibility.
