My Mindanaoan blog has been attracting solid traffic ever since I started posting news and updates about Centrio Ayala Mall CDO. And now that this new Cagayan de Oro mall is set to open in a few days, I thought I owed it to my loyal subscribers and readers to show what’s inside Centrio.
And so I, along with several members of the CDO Bloggers, Bukidnon Bloggers and Iligan Bloggers, requested for a sneak peek of the soon-to-open Centrio Ayala Mall Cagayan de Oro. We asked for a special, exclusive tour and the Centrio Ayala CDO marketing and leasing folks granted the request. Thank you very much 🙂
Presenting – fun, fast facts and photos of Ayala Mall Centrio
Centrio Ayala Mall Cagayan de Oro is a 3-storey mall located at Corrales Avenue corner CM Recto Avenue. It’s right across Gaisano City. Centrio CDO sits on 3.7 hectares of land.
If, like me, you’re wondering why this CDO mall is called “Centrio,” the marketing folks offered an explanation. Centrio is culled from the words “Center” (since the mall is at the heart of the city) and “Rio” (Spanish for river. Cagayan de Oro has a river).
All of us bloggers were made to wear masks since construction is still ongoing and it was still dusty inside. Pardon the hazy photos.
The ticket booth for the fully carpeted cinemas
Centrio Ayala Mall CDO will have 4 theaters. Three cinemas can hold up to 200 people while one can hold up to 300. There will be 1 3D cinema.
Here’s the Activity Center area. According to the leasing department folks, this can host up to 300 people.
Stage at the Centrio Activity Center
Here’s the Centrio Garden. These two acacia trees, said to be decades old, were retained by the Ayala mall owners. This area is perfect for evening events “under the stars” 🙂
Restaurants and coffee shops will surround the Centrio Garden
The Centrio Ayala Mall folks explaining to us all about the zoning inside the mall. Accordingly, the ground floor will have, among others, high end retail shops and fastfood chains. Rustan’s Fresh supermarket will also be at the first floor. This will be the very first Rustan’s Fresh in the entire Mindanao.
The second floor will have the family and kids zone, Robinsons Department Store and activity shops. The last floor will have the cinemas and IT as well as wellness shops.
So there you go. A peek into Centrio Ayala Mall CDO, which is set to open on November 9, 2012.
By the way, Anne Curtis will be at the mall on November 10 and El Gamma Penumbra of Pilipinas Got Talent will perform on November 11.
So are you excited? Any particular shops/stores/restaurants that you want to visit once Centrio opens on November 9, 2012? Please leave your comment below 🙂
I will also feature several shops in the next few days and will also launch contests and raffles. Watch out for that 🙂

Hi Degie, thanks for your comment. Yes, we heard that ASAP will have a mall show there on the 9th 🙂 Unfortunately, Mindanaoan and the bloggers who asked for this tour are not invited to the opening so we will just feature individual shops that will invite us.

Yup, it’s unfortunate. I guess they still do not understand the power of blogging and social media.
