Eight online MSMEs are given an opportunity to open their first physical store at SM.
SM Supermalls launched the first batch of MSME shops at the opening of the SM StartUp Markets last December 15 at the SM Megamall.
During the launch, SM Supermalls President Steven T. Tan announced that they will be opening eight shops under the SM StartUp Package in SM Megamall. “From Clark and Pampanga to Cagayan De Oro and Davao, we will be seeing new concepts and fresh products in 13 SM malls under various categories by January.”
The eight MSME owners chosen for SM Megamall’s StartUp Market include Kurimu, a Japanese-inspired premium handcrafted ice cream brand; The Truffle Peddler, maker of artisanal chocolate products from Philippine cacao; Ronin Asia, a Japanese aburi maki specialty kitchen; Isaw To Go, which offers frozen, vacuum-sealed street foods straight from Bulacan; AC-San, a one-stop shop for gold-plated and stainless steel jewelry; Alta Skincare Whitening System, a line of clinically-tested skin whitening products; Kahel Shirts, which source their fabrics locally; and True, creator of natural, clean, and hypoallergenic products meant for babies and those with sensitive skin.
