Guys, 3 years pa lang kasi ako sa Metro Manila and walang Puregold sa amin, so pardon my lack of knowledge on this company. Ano differentiation ng Puregold sa SM Hypermarkts, waltermarts, shopwise and other similar supermarket chains? thanks.

sir GBK. if i may again answer your question. Puregold, parang SM Hypermarket. meron din syan smaller stores Puregold Jr. ang tawag - parang SM Savemore. the items are cheaper than SM Hyper/Savemore and the foot traffic is quite good. Anong difference nya? Well, si tito lucio ay umm... err... matagal ng kilala ng dad ko at alam kong uh... hehe. madami syang iniimport. hihi.

kung price ng supermarkets ang pagbabasehan. based on a basic basket of the following items.

:1kg of rice, 1 pack of lucky me pancit canton, 1 small bar of safeguard soap, 1 can of san mig light, 1 can of coke, and 1 can of spam. eto ang verdict. from cheapest to most expensive. (yep, i checked!!)

cash and carry, robinson's supermarket, metro gaisano, shopwise, puregold, sm hypermarket, rustan's

*excluding S&R

puregold however, is one of the first (if not the first) supermarket chains to start using LED lighting in their supermarkets instead of the conventional t3 (fluorescent bulbs), significantly lowering the operational cost.

they have their own rotisserie chicken - the name which i most recently forgot. which tastes decent, but definitely better than the tasteless crap they serve at shopwise. sm's rotisserie chicken is surprisingly good.

if my memory serves me right, they're using the IPO money to complete their plans of 100 branches for the year. again, from memory, i think they currently have 70+ branches (please correct me if i'm wrong, i might have my figures all tangled up) so that would mean an expansion of around 20+ branches or around 30%.

nung una, at 18, i will pass. at 16, i will pass. pag isipan ang 12.50. para sa akin, mataas pa rin yan.

ako. kasi meron syang captured market. the sari sari store. shopwise and other membership stores are deceiving because their prices is exclusive of tax. at the counter, they'll add the tax and you actually end up paying more. mas maganda din locations of puregold branches as compared with SM hypermart na kailangan puntahan. usually, exits/entrances/inside big subdivisions ang puregold. parang big sari sari store. bike or lakad lang. yup, wala yata puregold sa ibang province. talo ng gaisanos and other big grocers.

although meats or frozen cuts are lesser quality. they got this habit of freezing the meat because there's no volume buyer.. minsan nakikita ko sila kina cut nalang yung inaamag na meats. hahaha. the rest like canned goods and vegetables have lower prices.

hypermart concept neighborhood locations.

pero at 20% gain, labas nako. i still remember Uniwide. Smile they got so ambitious that they forgot their core products (grocers). nag mall sila... talo ng SM.

retail industry ako galing. IF they stick to their core products (grocers), they'll continue profitting.

Ang aggressive nitong company na ito lately. Todo pa ang ads nila sa Eat bulaga. Dun sa province namin, bumibili rin syang supermarkets at cinoconvert into Puregold.

Parang mas maka-masa ang dating ng puregold kesa SM. at sila ang main sponsor sa EB's Juan for all if Im not mistaken? mas lalong napapalapit ang masa sa kanila.

PD: pass ako sa IPO
