The country’s leading home improvement and construction supply retailer, Wilcon Depot, celebrated another milestone as they opened their 50th depot store at General Santos City, South Cotabato on Dec.14.

General Santos is a first class highly-urbanized city in the province of South Cotabato. Thriving as the country’s 14th Most Competitive Highly Urbanized City this year and 15th most populated city, General Santos displays unrelenting opportunities for the growth in their agro-industrial, fishing, and services sectors. Looking into these potentials, Wilcon has undeniably come up with the perfect choice of bringing their newest retail store in General Santos City.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was led by Wilcon President and CEO Lorraine Belo-Cincochan, Wilcon SEVP-Chief Operating Officer and PRA President Rosemarie Bosch-Ong, United Architects of the Philippines National President Arch. Benjamin Panganiban Jr., Lixil Philippines Country Manager Alen Alban together with other Wilcon’s valued suppliers and General Santos City’s local government officials.

Located at Purok Palen, Brgy. Libangal, the first Wilcon Depot store in General Santos has a total sales area of over 12,000 square meters accommodating thousands of strong and reliable local and international brands in the market, arranged in an organized and clutter-free manner inside an air-conditioned store. By maintaining its uniformity in the interior of its depot store, Wilcon makes its operations efficient to help the customers shop with ease.

“We can’t wait to provide the local homeowners and builders in General Santos City the high-quality home improvement and construction needs and customer-focused shopping experience that Wilcon Depot offers,” said Wilcon SEVP-Chief Operating Officer Rosemarie Ong.

Wilcon is set to open one more store located in Puerto Princesa Palawan before this year ends as part of its ongoing expansion in fulfilling its commitment to have a total of 67 operating stores by 2020, which is earlier than planned, barring any unexpected external factors.
