MANILA – Wilcon Depot said Tuesday it would open more stores this year, capitalizing on consumer spending and the growing economy.
After opening its second store in Davao this month, Wilcon Depot will open 2 more stores in Mindanao, one in Visayas and 5 more in Luzon, said senior vice president Rosemarie Bosch-Ong.
The home improvement brand also introduced its online shop with a “few thousand” products meant to compliment its physical stores as consumers still prefer to buy products offline, she said.
“I guess people are still looking for that human connection especially with home improvement products. You want to buy stuff that really have the need for it and you want to feel item,” Ong said.
The company aims to bring its total store count to 60 by the end of the year, Ong said.
