DAGUPAN CITY -- With the looming school opening, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has forged partnership with retailers, supermarkets and malls in Pangasinan to provide school supplies to consumers at reduced prices.

Through the DTI "Diskwento and Balik Eskwela" programs, the buying public could avail themselves of school supplies at marked down prices by as much as 10 percent and special discounted prices, said Provincial Director Peter Mangabat.

Participating stores include CSI Supermarkets, Magic Supermarkets, Robinsons Place Pangasinan, National Bookstore, Nepo Mall Dagupan, Nepo Mart Alaminos, SM City Rosales, CB Mall Urdaneta, Magic Mall Urdaneta, Unitop Supermarket-San Carlos City and Home Ideas Superstore.


“We encourage the public to buy at recognized Diskwento Sale partners for their school needs to avail of the discounts," Mangabat said.

The government launched Diskwento sale programs and caravans to help the public avail of school supplies at cheaper prices and consequently help ease the burden of parents in sending their children to school, thus realizing the goal of "Education for All." (PIA)
