KCC Mall of GenSan opens North Wing expansion
A week ago KCC Mall of GenSan finally unveiled the first phase of expansion on its flagship store, the KCC Department Store Annex. The move was part of its preparations to meet head-on the entry of Manila-based malls in General Santos City, Robinsons Place which opened in October 2009 and most notably, SM City which is reportedly opening during the 2nd quarter of 2011.
Occupying the farthermost end of the new and longer North Wing of the Second Floor, the bigger KCC Department Store (or Annex) houses its Household Items sections, its Electronic Goods Section, Furniture Section, and its Fabrics Section, among others, which all were separated from the original site at the First Floor.
The new KCC Department Store (annex) at the North Wing has a very high-end look and could be mistaken for an outlet of the department stores of Rustans or Robinsons.
As one enters the main entrance, this is what greets him (see picture below)….
The aisles are more spacious, the lighting fixtures brighter and the merchandise are more varied and of higher quality and therefore are pricier. The ambience definitely is, as Melai of PBB would say, “PANG-MAYAMAN“!

Competition really brings out the best in all the players concerned. KCC Mall of GenSan‘s recent expansion and improvement moves only strengthened its hold on the bigger bulk of Soccsksargen’s value-conscious shoppers. Last we heard, even Gaisano Mall of GenSan has responded to the challenge and has started renovating its old building to accommodate a bigger, shinier and hippier four-storey edifice.
Even newly-opened Robinsons Place GenSan shows no signs of letup in coming up with surprises for its trendy upscale market and has definitely opted to concentrate in cornering a big slice of the A-B market.
