department store
Explanation:
I suggest that you leave the term in English. Think of it this way:
in the Philippines, do we say: XX* tiyenda ng departamento or SM department store?
You could also say tindahan, but the definition of department store is:
department store
n.
A large retail store offering a variety of merchandise and services and organized in separate departments.

*XX: refers to the name of the store.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Ria Holmgeirsson: I agree. We should be very flexible with our translation especially when our target readers are well-educated and familiar with the subject. Filipino is a constantly-evolving language. Goal is to make it as natural-sounding, not as "tagalog-as-possible."
