Cebu City Shopping – Shops, Stores, Best Buys & Inside Tips

Cebu City Shopping

If you love shopping malls you will love Cebu! Home of some of the best malls around, Cebu city shopping is open to all, so here are reviews on shops, stores, best buys and inside tips before you set out for your shopping day!

SM Malls

SM Mall, Cebu is one of the biggest department stores in the city. There are now three SM Malls in Cebu, one in Consolacion, Cebu City, and in Cebu Seaside City. The first SM in Cebu and most popular is in the reclamation area. In November 2015 SM Seaside City opened its doors, and SM seaside is now one of the biggest malls in Cebu. SM mall isn’t too expensive and you’ll find several great stores to browse as well as a huge grocery store on the ground floor. The food court is one of the biggest in Cebu and on the ground floor you can also find travel offices where to book trips, tours, and other tickets. It’s all in one building!

Tip:  MALL HOURS: Monday – Sunday 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM

Ayala Mall

Ayala is one of the well-known shopping centers in Cebu and was opened in 1994 as a branch from Ayala in Manila. The terrace was finished in 2008, which was an expansion with a beautiful garden. With around 200 stores inside and a grocery store in on the ground floor you’ll have plenty to shop through, though the food court is not as big as the SM malls. Ayala does also tend to be on the pricey side because of all the exclusive boutiques.

Tip: Ayala is open 7 days a week, except on Christmas and New years when it is closed in the morning. The mall is located in Cebu Business Park in Cebu City.
