Luzon-based retailer WalterMart is adding six stores this year to create a total network of 41 malls as the retail chain goes online on top of its physical stores.
The expansion is strongly supported by the company’s move to go online retailing via its online delivery channel on top of its brick and mortar presence.
Waltermart said that no plan yet for the company to expand outside of Luzon stressing they will continue its thrust as a community mall that they are known for.
The “I love Philippines” is a section in WalterMart Supermarket where micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) are given free space to display their products where otherwise they would be asked to pay ₱25,000 to ₱30,000 a month in rent.
WalterMart has onbarded Go Lokal-accredited suppliers in its 5 branches, 3 of which are in Metro Manila in Macapagal, North Edsa and Makati and two in Calabarzon in Tagaytay and Dasmarinas, on top of its existing suppliers of pasalubong products.
