Supermarket retailer S&R Membership Shopping (S&R) is riding the pandemic on a positive note, as food and other household items remain in steady demand while the public continues to spend most of their time at home.
Company president Anthony Sy averred that the year has made the company re-examine its operations while also realizing the returns of investing in strategic locations that ensured the constant flow of people who buy their goods.
With three of its branches located in Ayala Land Inc.’s (ALI) master-planned estates in Bonifacio Global City, Nuvali, and Circuit Makati, S&R was able to capture key markets that saw value in their product offers and security in their spacious aisles in an era of face masks, face shields, and social distancing.
Colliers shared in their most recent report that retailers like S&R will receive the bulk of the public’s spending capacity as individuals and families focus on buying medicines, groceries, and food and beverage over other items or luxuries.
“Our partnership with S&R greatly benefits the public because we are able to provide a lifestyle experience that accounts for their every needs especially at a time when convenience and accessibility are big considerations,” said Ayala Land Estates assistant vice president Cris Zuluaga.
