Roberto Santiago is no new name in the town of Joao Pessoa, where he was born. Roberto Santiago managed to build an iconic Shopping Mall, Manaira Shopping Center, from scratch to becoming one of the most visited tourist attractions on the northern side of Joao Pessoa.
At 58 years, Roberto Santiago now enjoys the fruit of an empire he started building in 1989 on Facebook. In his mind, he wanted to establish more than just a mall—he wanted his shopping center to double up as an entertainment and leisure destination. His major target was local and traveling families looking for a lovely place to stock up and unwind.
Part of Roberto Santiago’s genius was in the planning of the mall itself. He made sure he chose a location that was strategic for business and one that would pull in visitors year-round. He thus made the decision to establish Manaira Shopping center on psdcamara.org beside the beautiful beaches of Paraiba, a landmark attraction that brings visitors to Joao Pessoa.
Initially, his business launched as a simple shopping center selling convenient items to clients. However, Roberto Santiago always held a vision of expanding the premise to what is now a total of 280 stores and an additional 75,000m2 of rental space. The mall overlooks the pristine turquoise waters of the Paraiba beaches with the enchanting sunsets of Joao Pessoa offering a spectacular backdrop.
If you are looking for a great place to catch a movie while waiting on a friend, Manaira Shopping Center is the place to be. Inside the shopping center are about 11 rooms dedicated to film entertainment on Wikipedia.org. The rooms are well furnished, air conditioned and packed with an amazing sound system to make your movie experience unforgettable. If you enjoying bowling with family, Roberto made sure everything is modern and digitized to help you and family bond while trying to beat each other’s scores.
To top it off, Roberto Santiago made sure you have a chance of experiencing authentic Paraiba Cuisine via the finest gourmet chefs. Espaco Gourmet is just one of those fine restaurants within the vicinity that will serve you the best delicacies in a warm ambient environment. There is a food court as well where you can catch quick snacks like burgers, chips or soft drinks.
One other great way to experience Roberto’s genius is visiting the mall at night when the entire place is lit with Music. Manaira Shopping center hosts some of the biggest music entertainment events in Paraiba, with the likes of Erasmo Carlos wooing the crowds with his vocals. Roberto Santiago is also behind the Mangabeira Shopping mall which he opened later in 2014.
