Landers finally opened here at the South! My husband read about it in his FB feed early this week and said that we check it out on Friday. So, off we went to Landers Alabang West after his errands and our usual Friday routine. I don’t know if it was just the usual Friday traffic in the Commerce Ave-Daang Hari route or the volume of cars heading Landers, but we spent quite some time on the road on our way there. It’s a good thing that we had take out food to eat during the ride.
I first read about Landers setting up here in Alabang in the Mommy FB groups. There has been a buzz to this superstore in the last quarter of 2017. Some said that if you’re just buying for your personal consumption, it is best to shop at Landers. But, if you’re buying for your business, S&R is the place that you should go to.
When we got there, the Landers open parking was already full but there were several cars queuing for slots. We were directed to a nearby dirt-road-like property which was almost full at the time. Parking is FREE We walked all the way to the superstore’s entrance which was brimming with people. Landers has set up a registration area for new members right near the entrance.
The staff were very prompt and accomodating to everyone. There’s a special lane for pregnant women, senior citizens, and PWDs. Since I was babywearing Bubs yesterday, a member of the staff helped me process my application asap. The regular rate for a Premium membership is Php800 but they are offering a 50% discount so I only paid Php400. Not sure, though, when the promo rate will end. While paying for my card, a lady showed a printout to the staff and asked where she can claim her membership card. That’s when I learned that we can apply online. Too bad I didn’t knew that before!
Federal Barbers, located on the right side of the entrance, offers FREE haircut, as well as, shampoo and blowdry! My husband initially planned to avail of the free haircut but it was already late and the shop was full so he had to pass up on this chance.
Landers also have the open-shelves setup where you can see products stacked up high. Kind of like how S&R does.
Dough and Co. has a long table that is full of a wide array of cakes, cookies, muffins and other pastries that are either sold at a lower price or are on a Buy 1 Take 1 promo. We were able to buy that 4-piece Chocolate Chip Muffin box for only Php149.75. They taste good especially when warmed from the oven.
Landers also have a lot of under Php100 deals that we took advantage of! Among them are:
- Rainbow Nerds (big) –
- Siviero Maria Gelato (Pistachio and Tiramisu -150ml ea) – Php49.75
- Totally Awesome Bathroom and Shower Cleaner – Php59.75
- SuperSoft Table Napkins – Php49.75

Here are a couple of my husband’s great finds
Marvel Avengers Captain America with Battle Cycle (Php549.75). Our big boy chose this over the Iron Man.
Glad Sink Cutlery Holder (Php324.75) at 50% off!
We were supposed to eat at Landers Central, their in-house foodcourt but the line was too long and we couldn’t get a table.
Also, Landers had a promo in partnership with the Caltex station within it’s vicinity. It was past 8PM when we got out of the store, the queue to Caltex was too long, we haven’t eaten yet and we’re all too tired so we didn’t avail of the promo.
If you’re planning to visit Landers Alabang West on a weekend, you might want to:
- Eat before heading to the superstore. Shopping when hungry is not a good idea.
- Brace yourself for a high probability of heavy traffic. This is also why it’s important to do Tip #1.
- Watch out for Buy 1 Take 1, 50% Off and other discount deals.
- If you’re planning to dine at Landers Central after shopping, you might want to ask your conpanion to get a table at the foodcourt area while you’re still at the checkout counter.
