Puregold Supports Sari-Sari Store Sector

MANILA, Philippines - Puregold Price Club Inc., one of the country's leading supermarket chains, is committed to support the sari-sari store sector as it once again gathers sari-sari store owners during the 7thTindahan ni Aling Puring Convention from May 16 to 19 to give them numerous benefits and opportunities, and help them succeed in their businesses.

President Benigno S. Aquino lll will be the guest of honor at the opening of the 7th Tindahan ni Aling Puring Sari-Sari Store Convention on May 16 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

Leonardo Dayao, president of the publicly-listed supermarket and shopping mall chain, said the two convention sites reflect the increasing vibrance of growth areas outside the NCR, which Puregold has committed to support with even more store launches. This week, the chain opens three new stores in West Ave., QC; Gen. Trias in Cavite; and Brgy. Putatan in Muntinlupa, bringing its total network to 106 branches throughout Luzon.
