Last week, I encountered this heavy traffic in the Robertson’s area on my way to Brgy. Bibincahan. And this was around 11am. The driver said it’s because of the first day of opening, March 29, of SM Savemore.
In the afternoon on my way to the Sorsogon Gymnasium, the tricycle driver I talked to mentioned that the traffic in east section of Magsaysay area started at Brgy. Cogon! He also blamed the opening day of SM Savemore.
In any case, the traffic in the city proper won’t be getting any better!
SM SaveMore opens on March 29 giving Sorsogon City 1 more supermarket. The other two are LCC (one in Magsaysay St. and the other one is in Rizal St.), and Robertson's.
SM Savemore is built on the former Sorsogon Shopping Center in Brgy. Sampaloc (?). The said building also served as the former city hall in the 90s and early 2000s until the new city hall, in Brgy. Cabid-an, has been completed.
Expect heavy traffic in Magsaysay street, just like the section in front of LCC Supermarket along the same street.
