The SM City Cebu branched is the 36th in the country. They opened in the Philippine in June 2016, said Hong. Miniso will be opening 10 more by yearend, he said.
He said they’ve always wanted to open in Cebu, being a major city, but had to wait for space to be available. They will soon open in SM Consolacion and SM Seaside City.
Hong said they are also considering a store in Ayala Center Cebu.
Wide range of products
Miniso sells a wide range of items from gadgets, stationery, kitchenware, toys, bags, cosmetics, among its many categories.
“What’s important is the value for money. We offer good quality but at a very affordable price. It’s not cheap – it’s really the value for the money,” said Hong.
He said Miniso is a Japanese brand and the Japanese take pride in quality control, he said.
“Good quality, unique style, trendy, reliable and low price. These are the features of Miniso’s products,” the company said in its website.
