The Department of Tourism postponed the month-long Philippine Shopping Festival that was supposed to run from March 1 to 31 due to the COVID-19 scare. The Philippine Shopping Festival wanted to promote the country as a destination where shopping can be fun, unique, and affordable. It would have been the first nationwide shopping expo including the malls in Bacolod.
The DOT added that mall establishments cooperated to postpone the nationwide sale for the safety of their customers. Day-to-day operations by shopping malls are still encouraged, and they are recommended to follow precautionary measures against the spreading disease.
