The 2-storey building spans 3,500 square meters where 60% of its items are consumer goods ( fashion apparels, houseware and appliances) and 40% is food items.
"Mayor Celestino Martinez Jr. welcomed the new entrant as an enhancement of Bogo City’s economy.
“With its developed agricultural and coastal industries, Bogo is now in transit to becoming the trade metro of other municipalities such as Borbon and Medellin.
Neighbors are coming here to buy and sell. The hypermarket manifests our potential as a retail hub,” he said.
Martinez also mentioned the expansion of the Polambato port, which is a work in progress, as a significant factor in Bogo’s economic transformation.
He said the P260-million project scheduled for completion in the next three years will channel more business players to Bogo. “We’re inviting as many investors as we can. In fact, we’ve already set written tax incentives for those interested and anything not yet drafted, we’re willing to discuss,” he said. "
