Yuletide mall hours adjusted

The Metro Manila Council, the governing body of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, has agreed to adjust the operating hours of malls in the metropolis as a measure to ease the expected increase in traffic volume due to the incoming Christmas rush.

MMC made the announcement late Thursday, saying that the new mall hours will be from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., starting on 15 November 2023 until 6 January 2024.

The council said that the new mall hours will help spread out the traffic and reduce congestion during rush hour. It also called for a moratorium on road works in the National Capital Region during the period.

“We expect a lot of people to be out this holiday season because this has been our tradition as Filipinos where during the Christmas season, we go to the mall to buy gifts and eat together as a family,” it said.
