Davao City has many department stores, and all of them have supermarkets - the SM which is a 3-level department store located at Quimpo Blvrd, Ecoland. Other notable stores include the New City Commercial Center(NCCC-1) at R.Magsaysay St and (NCCC-2) at McArthur hi-way corner Ma-a. Gaisano Mall is the tallest store which have 5 storey building. They are modern buildings with lots of western goods in addition to local stores. Gaisano South which is located at Ilustre Street. Victoria Plaza is also one of the notable stores in davao, located at J.P. Laurel Ave, Bajada. Convenient stores are also around the city from city proper, urban places to sub-urbs, with its 24hours open services. Some stores are called sari-sari, that sell in retail terms, especially the cigars that you can buy per sticks, or per pack with the price of their own retail per sticks.

Due to security concerns, it is routine for security guards to lightly frisk people as they enter shopping malls in Davao, and indeed in most of the Philippines. The guards endeavour to be sensitive and invariably the guard is either female or there are separate lines for male and female entrants.

The safest bet for eating out in Davao are the food courts located in the shopping malls. The fare might be a bit blander than the street vendors but the hygiene is better, variety reasonable and it works out cheaper than buying your own food from the supermarket, with most light dishes about 40 to 50 pesos.
