Nothing beats a good bargain. Whether you are in desperate need of it or you only want to make an indulgent purchase for yourself, a good sale is one of life’s undeniable pleasures. But as we near the inevitable holiday shopping rush, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has banned all shopping malls to hold big sales during weekdays as a precaution against worsening traffic conditions.
Worry not, however, as weekend mall sales are still in full swing. The following are mall sales in November to rush to if you want your weekends occupied.
