Daiso Japan UP Town Center is Now Open

Shoppers line up at the counter to pay at Daiso Japan UP Town Center

I had a blast shopping at Daiso Japan UP Town Center. Yes, the Japanese retail store offering very affordable items is now open this side of Quezon City. It’s the company’s 60th store in the Philippines, and it opened with a bang via a flash sale. Shoppers came in droves and the place is full to the brim, it’s almost impossible to move around. But I can’t help but plow through the aisles because of interesting finds that I see at every turn. I think it’s the first time I felt giddy again with shopping. Who wouldn’t? Interesting items were sold for only P60, P160, and P260 only! And with the free ice cream for everyone, it’s a sweet treat after all the shopping and lining up.

A Glimpse of the Retail Industry in the Philippines at the NRCE

NRCE 2013

I was a part of the social media team of the recently concluded National Retail Convention Expo under Ms Janette Toral of Digital Filipino. Held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, I had a chance to listen to the speakers during the afternoon session of the convention on day 2. The event, spearheaded by the Philippine Retailers Association, was well attended by officials and executives of the industry. Although I’m a retailer myself, selling laptop bags online for about 5 years now, it was my first time to be part of this gathering where I had a glimpse of the retail industry in the Philippines in its current state, and the future. The Philippine economy is indeed on an upswing as shown by the growing malls and other commercial establishments in and outside the metro.
