Building a new home in La Union

There’s an increasing demand for owning and building ideal retirement or second homes in areas surrounded by bodies of water and greeneries. Homeowners find it attractive to have a property where they can relax, unwind, and enjoy a vacation whenever they leave the city for work.

Considering the location’s proximity, La Union or “Elyu” is one of the country’s popular tourist attractions and vacation spots. Known as the “Surfing Capital of the North,” Elyu has become an ideal place not only for surfers and tourists, but also for homeowners looking for a second permanent home in a relaxing province.

Luckily, homeowners and builders can now easily transform and renovate their homes with the newest home improvement store in the province. Wilcon Depot, the Philippines’ leading home improvement and construction supply retailer, recently launched its 81st store nationwide.

Located at Purok 4, Brgy. Paringao, Bauang, La Union, Wilcon Depot Bauang is the company’s first branch in Elyu and the third  location in the Ilocos region. The newly opened store has a total selling area of over 8,000 sqm carrying a wide product selection ranging from tiles, sanitarywares, plumbing, furniture, home interior, building materials, hardware, electrical, appliances, and other DIY items.
