Its Christmas shopping time at Tutuban Center!
I consider myself lucky during the christmas season because I live near Tutuban Center where I have all the time to shop without braving the traffic. I literally walk my way from the house to Tutuban Center and the Prime Block. Now why I love Tutuban is that it has all the things I need for a fraction of a price found at the mall. If Im not available for daytime shopping and or if there is an errand shopping needs to be done for everyone in the family, like halloween costumes, christmas decorations, cute gifts for monitos and monitas, and or christmas exchange gifts, there is a night market to consider which opens from 7pm onwards.
For the make up addicts, holler for the makeup brushes selling php400 for a set, you can choose from synthetic to goat's hair. Authentic Victoria Secret Lotion to Anna Sui's perfume mini samples. I know the store, just leave a message and lets have a date at Tutuban.

Tutuban Center, the bargain hunter’s paradise, has unveiled new and exciting features to pump up your shopping experience. The center recently underwent a number of renovation work and building improvements. With the holiday season coming, shoppers will make a beeline for the great deals in Tutuban Center’s Main Station and Prime Block.
Tutuban Center Main Station, with the Bonifacio Shrine across its entrance, is a heritage building where the original train station built in the 18005 first stood. As a heritage building, steps were taken to preserve its history including repainting based on the heritage color palette, and improving lighting for its facade details. The building has also retained features like brick walls and century-old wrought iron pillars that lead all the way to the food court.
The new and more spacious food court will soon offer some of Divisoria and Binondo's best food brands like El Presidente, Kikiam in Ilaya, King's Bakeshop and Eng Ho. Refreshing drinks and snacks from several food carts are also available. Picnic tables can comfortably seat shoppers taking a break.
The Main Station holds the mall’s retail shops, restaurants, and service stores. This connects to the Prime Block, which offers Tutuban Center’s revitalized shopping experience. Three shopping levels of pure bargain buying pleasure await visitors.
“We have introduced a cluster of stalls in level 3 of the Prime Block, which is now tagged as the Prime Block Clusters," explained Norie U. Raniel, Tutuban Center Deputy General Manager/Operations Head. "Merchandise zoning has been improved in the Prime Block building so that shoppers will find everything they want and need in each area."
The Prime Block offers a Shopper’s dream of choices, while seeing to their comfort and security. Clothes for every occasion, the latest RTW, even costumes and sleepwear are organized. Footwear, bags and fashion accessories are there to match the outfit of the day.
