What started as a humble hardware store along Quezon Ave. in Quezon City in 1997, has become the country’s trusted and leading home improvement and construction supplies retailer.
Bringing top-of-the-line products and home solutions to Filipinos, the Philippines’ giant home retailer has been a reliable, trustworthy and excellent source of innovative and quality products for the homes.
It carries the most extensive product selection of local and international brands. From tiles, sanitarywares to plumbing, furniture, home interior, building materials, hardware, electrical, appliances, and other DIY items, Wilcon Depot satisfies the needs of even the most discriminating shopper.
In 2003, Wilcon launched its first big-box format depot store in Las Pinas. It carried a wide range of products and offerd quality service. In 2009, the company introduced Wilcon Home Essentials, a mall-based format retail store, which caters the needs of DIYers.
“Wilcon has truly come a long way since its humble beginnings, and it has been made possible with the support of Filipino families and home builders,, who continue to put their trust in our products and services,” Wilcon Depot president and CEO Lorraine Belo-Cincochan said during the launch of its 75th store in Gapan City, Nueva Ecija, on April 29.
“I am humbled that we are slowly reaching our goals to serve every key city and locality across the country,” Cincochan added.
Through the years, Wilcon continues to expand and provide home-building solutions.
Wilcon now has 18 branches in Metro Manila and 62 stores in key cities and municipalities of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, wherein 71 are depot stores and 9 are home essentials stores.
It revolutionized the construction-supply industry by providing a convenient shopping experience for Filipinos. Each Wilcon Depot store is air-conditioned, has ample parking spaces, coffee shops (for depot outlets), and offers nationwide delivery service, interior design consultation, recreation corner for children, tile-cutting service, product installations, and repairs.
As part of fulfilling its #FlyingHighTo100 store expansion campaign. The company aims to have 100 operating stores nationwide by 2025, barring any unexpected external factors.
