The newest go-to store in the Philippines ups the ante of the traditional convenience store concept. Originating from Japan, Family Mart changes the landscape by ensuring a hassle-free shopping experience characterized by speed, convenience and fun.
The latest venture of Stores Specialists, Inc., Ayala Land Inc., together with their foreign partners Itochu Corporation and Family Mart Co. Ltd bring the well-loved convenience store to the country and with it, exclusive and exceptional features that only Family Mart can provide.
The most modern convenience store to hit the local market scene matches the basic offering of the competition, differentiates through their Japanese offerings and exceeds customer expectations through higher quality, better value products that are crowd pleasers and destination items. Aside from that, Family Mart offers a great store environment complete with free wi-fi access, clean rest rooms and comfortable dining spaces.
The convenience store, which currently has branches worldwide including South Korea, United States, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Taiwan, China, and now the Philippines, is committed to providing fresh, delicious, and grab-and-go products. Philippine Family Mart has ready-made Japanese favorites like katsudon, California maki, cold noodles, sushi tray, and omu rice (omelet fried rice). Popular Japanese products from Meiji, Kirei, and Nissin among others, as well as some exclusive Family Mart products, are also among the extensive list of items on the shop's shelves.
Aside from Japanese products, Family Mart has everyday staples including newspapers, magazines, snack items, breads, milk, soft drinks, fruit juices, and a limited number of grocery items such as cleaning supplies, paper products and personal hygiene essentials.
As the name implies, Family Mart aspires to be an indispensable part of their customers' lives. In keeping with traditional Filipino family values, Family Mart is proud to offer smart choices that cater to the whole family, with the end goal being a familial relationship between the customers, the franchise stores, and all the way to the head office.
Family Mart is now open at Glorietta 3 in Makati, and is set to open three more branches in the next few months: Glorietta 5, Ayala Avenue MRT Station 3, and Exchange Regency (Residence Hotel) in Ortigas.
