Es muy bonito estimada @belkyscabrera cuando hablan tan bien de nuestra ciudad y de sus centros comerciales, sabemos que nuestra ciudad necesita más cariño de los organismos gubernamentales, pero a nuestra amada Cumaná siempre la debemos destacar, en especial por los bellos escenarios naturales que tiene y por contar con muchos sitios para el esparcimiento, como sus centros comerciales. Abrazos. Éxitos.

It is very beautiful, dear @belkyscabrera, when they speak so highly of our city and its shopping centers, we know that our city needs more love from government agencies, but we must always highlight our beloved Cumaná, the capital of the Sucre state in Venezuela, especially for the beautiful natural settings that it has and for having many places for recreation, such as its shopping centers. Hugs. Excuse me for not having done the translation. successes.

Greetings @omarrojas, thank you for your visit and comment; yes, we have beautiful places to enjoy the wonders of nature and share with family, shopping malls offer great spaces for entertainment and fun, we are already in the Christmas season and the decorations in these places are a work of art, ideal for taking pictures with family and friends.

Happy and blessed day!

Greetings @lileisabel, thank you for beautiful comment; the mall is one of the most modern in the city, and being located in the economic center of the city makes it a "must" destination when you run errands and crave dessert or simply want to browse the stores.

Blessings!

Greetings @belkyscabrera. What a fascinating shopping center! I remember you featuring another mall also by the name of Cumaná Shopping Center (the one with the Traki department store) in one of your previous publications. Are these 2 establishments located close to each other? 😊👍

During your architectural tour of this featured Cumaná Plaza Shopping Mall, what specific emotions were evoked while you were exploring its interesting spaces?

Hello @storiesoferne, is a shopping center with a great architectural design unique in the city, the Cumaná shopping center is one of the newest, modern and is also very large, initially it was called Traky mall, then Hipergalerías and currently Centro Comercial Cumaná, is located on Humbold Avenue (south part of the city center), Before the construction of this mall, it was a residential area with small commercial premises. With the inauguration of this mall, the area has had a great economic boom, the construction of commercial premises has increased and there are many projects to continue expanding this new commercial area; The Cumaná Plaza shopping center is located on Blanco Fombona Avenue, where it converges with the economic center of the city on Perimetral Avenue (north), where most of the clothing stores, footwear, fabrics, grocery sales are concentrated and approximately one kilometer away is the municipal market, in fact from the southwest part of the Cumaná shopping center, you can see this shopping center (Cumaná Plaza).

Visiting the shopping center Cumaná Plaza, is exciting because I can buy fresh vegetables in Unicasa (which in my opinion along with the coffee Caripe Express are those that attract the largest number of customers and visitors), enjoy a walk with family, see new and modern stores, contemplate the beauty of the place, among others, but at the same time it gives me melancholy and sadness because the food fair is not what it used to be at the beginning and for several years, many establishments, I think 90% closed with the arrival of the pandemic, this space is very lonely compared to how it was before, very few businesses operate, the most popular is the one that sells hot dogs; On my last visit last week there were more people at the fair than when I went in September, I hope that little by little the food establishments will receive more customers and the great gastronomic variety that characterized this fair will return.

Have a happy and blessed day!

Wow! I'm glad those 2 malls have made significant contributions to the economical development of your city. With the rise of commerce, more jobs are created and the trading of goods has become more prevalent. 👍

As for the emotions you've experienced, it's quite understandable to have mixed feelings for your featured architecture. Anyway, there are times when we couldn't control the situation and only have to be more flexible about what's happening. And that explains your reactions to the various activities you've just explained. Thank you for sharing your valuable insights and personal preferences. Have a fun weekend! Blessings! 🙏😊

That's right @storiesoferne, we must be more flexible with the situation and accept the changes, even if they are not what we expect, the world is constantly moving and changes and transformations go hand in hand, I think assimilating a change is sometimes difficult, it costs a bit to break with the established parameters, to which you get used to and leaving the comfort zone clashes with your habits, but you have to move forward and not stay stagnant, the world of finance and business is very dynamic and I believe that the future food fair will be much better than before or instead new topics will come that will give a greater openness to the mall.

Have a happy and blessed weekend!

I really like the design of the place of this mall and the whole distribution of the stores; of the exterior design as well, I love the unique, the play of colors and how they make the structure stand out.

Hi @ginethchira2301 , the design of the mall is very beautiful and the structure is attractive, I agree with you on the colors I love those colors make it very eye catching, it is a place where besides shopping and seeing stores you can share a breakfast or dessert with family and friends.

Blessings!
