The newly-opened store features almost 7,000 square meters of selling space, offering thousands of high-quality local and international brands and vast product selections ranging from Tiles, Sanitarywares, Plumbing, Furniture, Home Interior, Building Materials, Hardware, Electrical, Appliances, and other DIY items.

Strategically located at Purok 4 National Highway, Santa Clara Sur (Poblacion), Pila, Laguna, the store is designed to bring big ideas to more local homeowners and builders and provide an unparalleled home shopping experience. Customers can shop daily at Wilcon Depot Pila from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

Driven by its commitment to establish stores in key cities and localities across the country, Wilcon first entered the Laguna province in July 2009 for the opening of Wilcon Depot Calamba, followed by Wilcon Depot San Pablo in May 2015. The following year, Wilcon Depot Sta. Rosa was established, and Wilcon Depot Cabuyao was launched in September last year.

The newest store opening in Pila, Laguna is part of the fulfillment of the giant retailer’s continued store expansion plan wherein the company aims to have 100 stores nationwide by 2025, barring any unexpected external factors.

Wilcon now has 69 store locations nationwide, wherein 18 branches are in Metro Manila, and 51 stores are located in key cities and municipalities of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Wilcon Depot plans to open four more stores this year in Dauis, Bohol; Tagum, Davao del Norte; Calapan, Mindoro; and Malaybalay, Bukidnon.

“Despite the challenging circumstances in the current retail market, we’re thrilled to be growing our store presence here in Laguna and particularly delighted to become part of the Pila community. Our well-trained Wilcon CX Heroes are very excited to serve every valued customer that pays a visit to the store as we open our doors today,” Wilcon Depot SEVP-Chief Operating Officer Rosemarie Bosch-Ong said. “Wilcon will continue to innovate the home construction retail landscape as we fulfill our commitment of being the most reliable partner to all homeowners and builders in making their dream homes into reality,” she added.
