The rumored entry of Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) in Roxas City is finally confirmed. Last April 15, 2012, RLC held the ground breaking ceremony of its first mall development project in Capiz at a 75,000 square meters property inside Pueblo de Panay, a prime residential and commercial development in Barangay Lawaan, Roxas City.

The only full-service mall operating in Roxas City right now is a Gaisano Mall located along Arnaldo Boulevard.
