A key feature of the uncompleted Virac Town Center, the ACC Hypermart, opened its doors to a receptive consuming public last Friday afternoon.

Touted as the largest supermart in the island, the ACC Hypermart boasts of a wide array of goods within easy reach of the customer negotiating its spacious corridors in comfort. While the meat section remains unfinished, the supermart is expected to be filled with offered products to capacity in the next few weeks.

In his brief remarks during the blessing and inauguration of Virac’s newest business complex, San Andres Mayor Peter Cua said the Cua family decided to go ahead with the soft opening on Dec. 19 so that Hypermart could start serving the public just in time for the Christmas shopping rush. He added that the establishment answers the buying public’s clamor for relaxed shopping in a modern facility.

With unemployment one of the biggest problems of the province, the work in progress that is the Virac Town Center hopes to give at least 200 job opportunities to diligent job-seeking Catandunganons, he stated, with 250 workers provided steady income since the mall construction began. The JC Cua Group of Companies, the mayor pointed out, employs more than 1,000 people in its various firms. “This is our big share in the vision of nation-building towards our national goals for an improved quality of life for our people,” he stressed.

Cua informed that the Center is in Phase 1 of its work, with a food court, drug store, boutiques, shops and and a commercial bank set to open in the coming months. At the back portion, he bared, will be built a movie house, hotel, recreational facilities and other amenities.

“We will try to have these completed with God’s grace, so you’ll spend more time in this place and enjoy a relaxing day as we make the Town Center a landmark in our island province,” the mayor said.

Virac Mayor Flerida Alberto welcomed the soft opening as yet another sign of the confidence of the Cua Group of Companies in the business atmosphere in the capital town and cited the Virac Town Center’s potential in raising revenues of the local government in the years ahead.

Virac Bishop Manolo de los Santos presided over the blessing, which was attended by the Cua family headed by Fernando and Asuncion Cua, PBM Gregorio Angeles, PBM Shirley Abundo, San Andres Vice Mayor Leo Mendoza and members of the Sangguniang Bayan, Virac Vice Mayor Roy Laynes and Councilors Virgilio Candelaria and Lemuel Surtida, and other guests.
