SM Quiapo (also known as SM Clearance Outlet and SM Carriedo) is the very first SM Store opened in November 1972. The store is owned by Chinese-Filipino billionaire Henry Sy and currently being managed by the SM Group's foundation, SM Department Store Inc. The store has been renovated and relaunched as SM Clearance Store.

History[edit]

Henry Sy established shoe stores in Manila which were Plaza, Paris and Park Avenue which started with letter "P" prior to establishing the store that would be known as SM Quiapo. In 1958, he established a shoe store in Carriedo, Manila, which he named Shoemart after he was not able to come up with a name starting in "P".[1]

The store was later expanded and began to sell clothes and accessories aside from just shoes. In 1972, Shoemart was expanded and became the first SM Department Store.[1]
