Save More to open in Carcar-A A +A
Thursday, January 30, 2014
A POPULAR department store chain will open its eighth Cebu branch in Carcar City.
Save More, a subsidiary of the SM Group, will open another branch in Carcar City with its officials promising the Carcar City government that their manpower will be composed of residents from the city.
Save More will build a store in a 3,500-square meter property in Barangay Poblacion and plans to open their store by June.
A team from Save More led by Allan Flores, operations manager, visited the office of Carcar City Mayor Nicepuro Apura for a courtesy call.
Flores said that once their establishment begins operation, they promised to hire 80 percent of their personnel from among the city’s residents.
Flores also promised to use local suppliers for vegetables and local delicacies that they will sell at their establishment. They plan to include Carcar City’s famous chicharon (pork crackling) and lechon as part of the products they will sell at the mall.
For Apura, Save More’s investment is a good indication of the progress of the city and would be advantageous for residents there.
Apura also hopes that the city government and Save More will continue to work together in various projects involving the constituents.
