Greenfield Development Corporation, the real estate firm behind Greenfield City, envisioned a new city center way back in the 1990s as it observed the metro slowly reaching full development. It saw immense potential in its 400-hectare landholding in the sleepy town of Sta. Rosa, and took a different approach to jump-starting the community—by building the foundations of industry and commerce through the Greenfield Auto Park, Sta. Rosa Business Park and Paseo Outlets.
Long before the proliferation of outlet shops and discount stores in the country, those in the know trooped only to Paseo Outlets for a genuine experience of value shopping and markdown prices. A pioneer retail destination in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, Paseo Outlets was part of the initial development of the 400-hectare Greenfield City this side of Southern Metro Manila in the 1990s.
Fast forward to today, Paseo Outlets still endures as the biggest and most premier outlet center in the Philippines for its unsurpassed variety of more than 50 global brands. Arguably, Paseo started the “outlet shopping” lifestyle among Filipinos, where premium brands can be had for a fraction of normal retail prices.
Paseo is also the first shopping center in the country to open outlet stores of non-clothing lifestyle shops such as Pottery Barn and West Elm for furniture and home furnishings and Beauty Bar for cosmetics.
Opening by the last quarter of 2017 is another first in the local retail scene—an outlet shop of National Bookstore, which is everyone’s go-to for the latest books and publications, as well as school and office essentials. Value hunters will enjoy marked down prices on many items, staples and hard-to-find alike.
Shoe addicts and sneakerheads can also look forward to a brand-new Converse outlet shop opening before year-end as well.
Paseo Outlets has evolved into a complete lifestyle mall with the perfect complement of restaurants, cafes, bars and fast food favorites in its sprawling, green complex. The unique al fresco atmosphere is also perfect for outdoor events such as a weekend market of curated goods, organic produce and local delicacies.
Wheely’s Café is the latest F&B concept in Paseo that has foodies driving in from all over town just to experience its unique “micro café”-on-wheels concept and adventurous vegan menu. Originating from Sweden, Wheely’s is disrupting the restaurant scene with its casual vibe that fosters a sense of community among its customers.
