Mangabeira Shopping Mall, A Grand Experience By Businessman Roberto

There are a dime a dozen shopping malls in the world; however, only a few of these malls make guests stare in awe and admiration at first sight. In November 2014, a new and magnificent structure was inaugurated at João Pessoa, and this building was none other than Mangabeira Shopping, created by the businessman Roberto Santiago.

 

 

Often termed as a man with a great vision, Roberto Santiago created this mall that was visited by over 350 thousand people, with retail shops were pleasantly surprised by the turnout. On the day of the inauguration, many of the stores within the mall noticed that the day’s sales were higher by five times compared to other outlets who had chosen different malls.

 

 

The project to build Mangabeira Shopping was completed in two and a half years, and Roberto Santiago spent over half a billion reais as an investment while creating jobs for 3,000 people. Previously, Roberto Santiago had invested in another mall known as Manaira Shopping, that was inaugurated in 1989 and was once considered to be of the most significant shopping centers in the city. The two malls were not deemed to be rival projects as both were envisioned by Roberto Santiago and both the malls catered to their clientele at their respective locations.

 

 

While both the projects are shopping centers, they have been built as two separate entities according to the urban social viewpoint. The Manaira mall was created for the residents of that region, that was made up only of houses in 1989, but due to this particular mall, an increasing number of more prominent residential and commercial buildings started being established in Manaira.

 

 

Similarly, it was expected that the Mangabeira mall would create an appreciation of property rates in the region since its establishment in 2014, which would, in turn, create a better socioeconomic standing for the people in that location.

 

 

The banking sector was impacted as well, especially in the last few years due to numerous medium and large businesses establishing themselves in and around the locations of these malls. Moreover, the Mangabeira shopping complex has turned out to be one of the leading causes of the success of the project’s leader, Roberto Santiago.

 

 

Born in 1958, Roberto Santiago began his education by studying at Pio X Marist College, after which he completed his higher studies in Business Administration at the University Center of João Pessoa. He commenced his journey on his professional path at Café Santa Rosa, but shortly after this, he decided to fund his time and finances into his cartonnage firm. He has an immense amount of knowledge in all things business, and with his vast experience, he has been helping the economic development of João Pessoa, with projects such as the Mangabeira shopping complex.
