While the place is called Mabini Strip, this is not its formal name. It just so happens that this is the street where shoes and clothing stores, along with accessories and gadget stores mushroomed. It is a strip where shoppers’ bargaining power can be tested and exercised. Discounts can be made available to good hagglers. The stores have diverse choices when it comes to value-for-money stocks.
Practical moms and trendy teenagers looking for outfits can buy a blouse at PhP100. A pair of jeans is sold for as low as PhP180. Most of the clothes sold on Mabini Street are from Pasig, Taytay, Thailand, and China. Do note that the sales staff at Mabini Strip can be persistent. They follow shoppers around and say things like “Suki, anong hanap? (Frequent shopper, what are you looking for?), and “Suki, pili na” (Frequent shopper, feel free to choose what you want). Among the stores on Mabini, 668 Shopping Center is the one that stands out. It is bigger than the other stores and sells more items.
