(This article first appeared on my regular newspaper column on Gold Star Daily, Mindanao’s largest newspaper. My column, dubbed “Mindanaoan Meets World,” appears every Friday).
Everyone’s so excited about the impending opening of S&R Membership Shopping at Zone 5, Kauswagan Highway, Cagayan de Oro that it’s practically the talk of the town. I mean, there’s really good reason. After all, S&R CDO sits on a massive property, has a parking space good for a little over 300 vehicles, a tire center where members can have their tires fixed and replaced for free, lots of quality imported goods all at amazingly low prices, lots of buy 1 take 1 deals, freshly delivered quality meats (they have steaks!), freshly made breads and cakes (anybody up for cheesecakes?) and of course, churros, ice cream and the ultra famous New York Style pizza (okay, people, let’s calm down).
So, yes, I understand why everyone’s reeling!
S&R CDO is a membership-shopping club modeled after the warehouse membership shopping chains introduced in the United States. Ergo, you can expect about 80% of their goods to be imported but all at great prices. Even local products are all priced well. Let me give you an example – how about a branded 50 inch TV set priced about Php 12,000 less compared to rates in malls and other appliance stores? IKR.
S&R CDO will open on July 28, 2016 and I highly recommend that you go visit the store now to apply for membership. S&R CDO is located across the RTMI garage in Kauswagan, before you take that right going towards Bulua Bus Terminal. For membership inquiries, call 0917 785 0500. Gold membership is Php 700 while business is Php 900.
I will share more infos about S&R soon but for now, allow me to share some of the photos taken during the media guestings of their Vice President for Operations, Greg Kreyer.
