A visit in FamilyMart Glorietta

IMG_9042
I mentioned earlier here in my blog about FamilyMart, that convenience store in Japan is now here in Manila. Their branches are only available in a location that is owned by Ayala-Rustan, well most of the branches are in Ayala owned malls. But I need to research more if there are other branches of FamilyMart that is outside the vicinity of Ayala property. (OK, I just researched that there’s a branch in Alphaland and in UP Town Center)

I just read this news that they are planning to put up 300 branches here in our country.
Japanese retailing chain FamilyMart, a retail store chain brought to the Philippines by the Ayala and Rustans groups, plans to scale up its operations to hit 300 stores over the next five years.
For this first year of operations, the target would be to roll out 30 FamilyMart stores in Metro Manila, according to Ayala Land Inc. chief finance officer Jaime Ysmael.

Ysmael said the group would be open to franchising the brand to accelerate growth. At the same time, he said the group would put up stores in various formats.

Capital spending for each convenience store is estimated at P2 million. Since the retail space would mostly be rented, Ysmael said the cost would be for store fit-out and inventory. -

Now we have another player in the convenience store business. So what’s the specialty of FamilyMart ?
A good store visit might explain it. When I learned that there’s a FamilyMart branch in Glorietta, my wife then told me that we should visit it, so after our event in Makati Shangri La Hotel, The location of the store branch is just a walking distance from the hotel, When went there right after we stepped out of the hotel hahaha.
