LEADING home improvement and construction supply retailer Wilcon Depot continued to ramp up its expansion, opening its third store in Batangas on Aug. 30.

Wilcon Depot opened a new store in Barangay Santa Anastacia in Sto. Tomas, adding to its two stores located in Batangas City and Lipa City.

To date, Wilcon Depot Sto. Tomas is the company’s 55th branch in the country. This is also the company’s fifth store opening this year, after branches in Panacan Valle Verde, Davao City; Sta. Barbara, Iloilo; Opol, Cagayan De Oro; and San Isidro, Antipolo City.

“We are excited and proud to be one of the first movers of this blooming province. This new depot store is a fulfillment of a vision we have, which is to provide an accessible and efficient way for more Batangueños in building, designing, renovating and decorating their homes,” Wilcon Depot Senior Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer Rosemarie Bosch-Ong was quoted as saying in a statement.

The newest Wilcon store has a total sales area of over 11,000 square meters, with a wide array of home building materials such as tiles, sanitary wares, furniture and hardware.

Wilcon carries exclusive top-tier brands such as Grohe, Kohler sanitarywares, Franke kitchen systems, Pozzi bathroom solutions, Kohler whirlpool bathtubs, and Ariston water heaters. The store also carries Italian, Spanish and Asian tile brands.

“For over 42 years, we carry the vision to fill in the gap of Filipino homeowners and builders’ need for home building construction supplies… Now, as the leading home improvement and construction supply retailer, our commitment doesn’t limit us with just providing the high-quality home products but at the same time, giving our valued customers an utmost customer service and convenient and hassle-free shopping experience — which we believe is unlike any other retail store anywhere,” Ms. Bosch-Ong added.

Wilcon also offers free parking spaces, delivery service, and tile cutting service, among others. They also provide a service where customers can create their desired 3D layout through a computer software with a cost estimate and product list at the Design Hub section.

The listed company is ramping up its store expansion this year, with plans to open in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan; Iguig, Cagayan Valley; Makato, Aklan; and Daraga, Albay.

By 2020, Wilcon targets to have 65 stores under its network.
