I remember the glory days of departmental store Metro, and how strolling through its aisles were a common family activity. Even if you leave empty-handed, spending an hour or two at departmental stores just window shopping can be therapeutic and fun.
Though only two brick-and-mortar Metro stores remain—Causeway Point and Paragon—you can still get the same deals online. Unbeknownst to many, Metro has actually hopped on the Lazada bandwagon and now has its own Flagship Store on LazMall.
To honour our fond memories of Metro, we’ve picked out 10 interesting and exciting buys you can get from Metro-Lazada today.

Soap-based products are cost-efficient, but can sometimes be more damaging to the skin than we’d like. Dermatologists have long warned against the use of soap, especially for eczema patients. Soapless products are also gentler on the skin, devoid of the drying effects of regular soap.

Elevate your Mookata experience with this steamboat and grill rolled into one which, really, seems more of a reverse Mookata grill. It features a pot for your broth and an outer ring as a grill, unlike typical Mookata grills that are built otherwise. This 2-in-1 contraption allows you to enjoy piping hot noodle soup with grilled bacon strips on the side, and if that isn’t bliss, then I don’t know what is.

Face masks now have increasing importance in our daily lives, while the need for makeup has been dwindling at a dangerously fast pace. No one knows exactly how long more we will have to don masks in public, but it’s certain that we will have to learn to live with it for a substantial amount of time. Invest in a mask that gives you two looks for the price of one—business in the front, and party on the flip side.
