History[edit]

As early as 2008, SM Prime Holdings was planning to open SM Supercenter San Pablo (a downsized SM mall, originally) but this was shot down due to political pressures. After several attempts to build a similar establishment, SM Prime Holdings was given its go signal in July 2008 to push ahead for SM Supercenter San Pablo[5][not in citation given] located at Riverina Residential and Commercial Estates along Maharlika Highway at Brgy San Rafael.

It was expected to be completed in August 2010, but due to strategic location and growing demands for commercial establishments in San Pablo, it was upgraded into SM City San Pablo last April 28, 2010.[6][not in citation given]

The mall opened on October 1, 2010.[7] SM Cinema San Pablo was launched on December 3, 2010 before the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival from December 25, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

On July 16, 2014, The mall's facade was damaged due to Typhoon Glenda (Rammasun) that passed through Laguna.
