debenhams will opens its doors to patrons on Aug 24 at Rustan’s Makati. i guess this is one of the moves of one of the biggest retailers in the country, Rustan’s Commercial Corporation, to make international brands reachable to the Manilenos. this move would hopefully bring more foot traffic in Rustan’s Makati thus hopefully increasing its sales.

retail is one of the economies in our country that we have to maximize. look at singapore, one of the main reasons that their economy is really rising is because of the money that the government generates from the retail industry. i think if our gov’t will be able to maximize the said industry, we would be able to increase tax collections (provided that there will be less corruptions). hehehe. plus the fact that we can market our country as a leisure destination with all the resorts that are scattered within our 7,107 islands (high-tide) hehehe. visit if that happens, our gov’t will have lots of money. less corruption, please!

    Hi! I work for the Philippine franchisee of Debenhams. Thanks for the plug on our new Rustan’s Makati store. We actually had a soft opening today, Aug 23. Hope you can drop by sometime. It’s quite different from our Shangri-La store and really suits the Makati customer as far as the interiors and merchandise go. One thing worth noting: our prices for many items are lower than what they would be in the UK. Kind regards!
