It officially opened this morning, July 31, 2015 at the U.P. Town Center. And I was more than happy to be invited to witness the grand opening! Mr. Ayala was sitting in the row right in front of me. I had to fight the urge to take a selfie with him haha!
The opening was quick, simple, and filled with high energy especially when the staff started dancing!
And in case you need help finding a specific item, your friendly Merkado staff are always on stand-by to assist you!
The greens and fruits section I would say is the most attractive. It all just screams FRESH and HEALTHY!
This is the only supermarket I've seen with lots of mushrooms including ENOKI!!!! Just P37 per pack :-) I'm so happy! But I still have to Google on ways to cook it haha!
Colorful fruits everywhere!
They have potted herbs too!
And they've got a nice looking salad bar.
And don't forget the cheese and wine section! There's a whole other aisle of alcoholic drinks there don't worry! :-)
Almost all jaws dropped when we saw their beautiful selection of ice cream! (I should have bought that Twix ice cream). Ben and Jerry's, Twix, M&Ms,...
To Carmen's Best and Cold Stone!
They've got quite a selection too for beverages. Most of the imported ones on this picture I'm not even familiar with.
Here are just some of the imported candies and chocolates there. And this Mug Shot looks really interesting! Clever name too!
Merkado Supermarket also has lots of other stuff . Hello Kitty and Lock and Lock lovers will be thrilled with this rack.
They've got school supplies.
They've got baby stuff. (Avent for crying out loud!). But they also have Pigeon for a more affordable option :-)
And when you realize you might not have time to cook dinner, there's also a Chooks to Go counter beside the bakery section. Their opening promo is Buy One Get One! Awesome deal!
And of course they also have their own value card called the Green Card. Where you can get rebate on the points you get. They were giving it out for free the first 100 registrations earlier today. Thanks Merkado! :-)
For its opening, Merkado Supermarket patrons will be in for some cool treats. Starting with their opening weekend promos where in there will be BUY 1, TAKE 1 deals on selected grocery items. And then for a purchase of P1,000, buyers will be treated to a FREE ITEM! (enter voice over: See posters and print ads for details!)
