Don't Panic, Art Lovers: Here's Why Art Bar's Store in Alabang Is Temporarily Closed
Their other stores will remain open.
(SPOT.ph) If you're an artist, craft enthusiast, or just someone who enjoys experimenting with creative projects, you're probably a regular at art-supply shop Art Bar. With branches all over the Metro, Art Bar is a one-stop shop for all kinds of handy tools and materials for painting, sketching, chalk drawing, and more. The store even has a selection of art history and activity books to help you learn more about your chosen craft.
For art lovers in the south, your go-to Art Bar branch is probably their outpost at Alabang Town Center, which first opened in 2018. On April 1, Art Bar announced in a Facebook post that their branch in Alabang Town Center (ATC) would be temporarily closing—and considering how many stores and businesses have shut down amid the pandemic, we understand that this may raise some alarm bells in your head. But don't panic, art enthusiasts: Art Bar ATC isn't closing down for good.
Why Art Bar PH Is Temporarily Closing Their ATC Branch
In a message to SPOT.ph, Art Bar clarified that they’re moving to a new space inside Alabang Town Center, particularly beside National Book Store, which is located on the upper ground floor. ICYDK, Art Bar is managed by the NBS Group, so it makes sense that their stores would be next to each other. "This new space will allow us to continue showcasing our curated selection of art books and creative supplies while also offering a more convenient shopping experience for our customers," they said in the message. As of writing, no official date for the reopening has been announced, but we’re crossing our fingers it’ll be soon.
In case you still need to shop art supplies till then, you can check out Art Bar’s other stores at Power Plant Mall, Serendra BGC, SM Megamall, and Quezon Avenue. They even have two outposts outside the capital at SM Baguio and SM City Cebu. And if any of those spots are a little too far out of your reach, the art-supply shop's lineup is also available on Shopee and Lazada. They also accept pick-up and delivery orders via text or Viber message.
