Barely a year after the new CyberZone at Mall of Asia opened its doors, it’s now apparently closing down by the end of the month.

Got curious after seeing some of the stores were packing up last Sunday so I asked several of the attendants about it and they said they only have until July 28, 2009 to pack up and move out.

Cyberzone  Closed

Realme Philippines

They revealed that a lot of the stores in CyberZone aren’t making enough sales to maintain rent so the mall management decided to close it down.

Been hanging around that area for some time now and have noticed very few people visit the place:

  • Foot traffic is very low. Not a lot of people knew about the CyberZone area or even know where it is.
  • CDR King is probably one of the few ones people really go to and that’s only because the other CDR King at the 2nd floor North Wing is always full.
  • The bridge-way from the North Wing to the eComm Building took some time to get done so people wandering around the main mall had a hard time to get to CyberZone.

The vacant space left will then be converted to office spaces or possibly an extension of the existing call center in that building.

the problem is ang mahal ng renta at ang mahal ng electronics dito sa atin….

ex. a $200 dollar dgcam sa us is costing 20K here…

kahit mag add ka ng tax mahal pa rin dito kesa sa us…

in short they will not make money simply because ang mahal ng tinda nila sa mga malls….

plus the fact na nasa labas ng mall yung area nila.. maiinit sa MOA kung wala ka sa loob nakakatamad mag ikot pag ganon……

My passion is to window shop gadget and PC stores. I never got time to go to the cyberzone at MOA. Glad to hear they will just relocate. Nice to learn too that they have a cyberzone in cubao. Sa Farmers mkt. at ali mall lang nga ang mga PC stores dun eh. I agree its so tiring to walk around the cyberzone in SM-north. To Remedy this I park my car at the annex elevated parking at the cyberzone level. At least mas maliwanag at sosy na ang dating kesa dati when it was at the carpark. But I always get all my stuff at Gilmoe pa rin. Prices are the lowest. Maganda lang pasyalan ang mga PC stores so you can see the latest product developments.

The tech area on the 2nd floor of Moa at the north wing will be the new cyberzone according to my ever reliable sources. It will be enhanced to matched the other cyberzone branches like in SM marikina, mega, Manila, cubao and the rest… Cheers!

Cyberzone in Cubao has PC Gilmore, CDR King and Villman and its right beside the grocery. I gave up trying to find the place after getting lost three times.

siguro talagang taghirap ang sales ngayon kaya walang benta.kasi kung may pambili ang tao hahanapin at pupuntahan yan kahit pa sa rooftop.

As expected :p

When it opened up we visited it and took photos of the little gaming museum they setup. At least once a month, we go there just to look and check things out. Other than that, it’s empty and we’ve always wondered how long they’re going to pay rent.

They need to move CyberZone elsewhere – there’s a huge 2 level empty space in front of the Jose Rizal sunglasses store, South-West corner of the mall (or South of the Music Hall). They can move CyberZone there.

Secondly, they should implement the CyberZone “You Are Here” (guide thingy) everywhere. I really like it, so “high-tech”, the ones we see in movies ;)

They have another version of it in the main-front door of the main mall, but I like the CyberZone version.

Anyone who can pass this to SM MoA management? Tnx ^_^

I’ve been there once, and I must say, it’s perfect for those who don’t want to fall in line. Then again, it’s bad for the business not having people “fall in line.”

dapat alisin yung ice skating rink, at ipalit yung cyberzone dun! hahaha!

pero seriously, sadyain talaga yung Cyberzone ng MOA eh… ang konti ng mga tao.

dapat nun nasa Main Mall ng MOA.
yung ibaba ng Department store sa South Wing ang dapat i-Convert nila into Cyberzone, yung buong ground floor.

This only states that tech is always push aside in the Philippines.

i suggest you close down all PC/electronics related shops and ilipat sa cyberzone para mapilitan pumunta ang tao doon

another thing. SM Mall of Asia’s 2nd level north wing houses all the cellphone and gadget stores. Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Hello, Memo Xpress, Mega Exchange, Netopia and the likes are present there. Plus, Smart, Globe and Sun’s business centers are also on that place.
