LEADING retail company Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. (MRSGI) solidifies its industry dominance in the Visayas region with the recent opening of its 51st store at the heart of Mandaue City in Cebu.
Located at H. Abellana St, Barangay Canduman, Mandaue City, the new Metro Supermarket is a welcome development for residents looking forward to procuring a variety of freshest produce, dry goods, basic essentials and other quality merchandise – all at affordable prices — in their community.
With a 2,544 square-meter store, Metro Supermarket Canduman also features its Metro Pharmacy to cater to the health and wellness needs of shoppers.
The Metro Canduman store opening signals the company’s continued drive to showcase its products and services to more areas nationwide and enhance Filipinos’ lifestyles by providing quality one-stop shopping experience as well as employment opportunities to local residents.
Moving forward to 2017, MRSGI will continue to apace with the plan to double its 2015 gross floor area (GFA) by 2020, thereby adding another 400,000 square meters, according to its President and Chief Operating Officer Arthur Emmanuel.
“This store, as with all our branches, tells the commitment and the strength of Metro and Metro associates to give quality products at very affordable prices, and also to provide the best customer service and shopping experience for everyone,” Emmanuel said.
Metro stores are present in key cities in Central, Western and Eastern Visayas, as well as in Central Luzon, Metro Manila, and South Luzon. With three store formats comprising a department store, a hypermarket and a supermarket, MRSGI remains as Cebu’s largest retailer operating 25 stores in the province alone.
