Metro Colon department store and supermarket in Cebu City recently won first prize in the Visual Merchandising Competition of the 2017 Sinulog Festival.
In line with this year’s festival theme of “One Beat, One Dance, One Vision”, Metro Colon brought to life the color, tradition and essence of giving homage to Sto.Niño through its creative and artistic in-store motifs of the annual celebration. Metro Colon was established in 1982 and is the first department store of Metro Retail Stores Group, Inc. (MRSGI), the largest retail store operator in the Visayas region.
Manila Standard website (manilastandard.net), launched in August 2002, extends the newspaper’s reach beyond its traditional readers and makes its brand of Philippine news and opinion available to a much wider and geographically diverse readership here and overseas.
In tone and content, the online edition mirrors the editorial thrust of the newspaper. While hewing to the traditional precepts of fairness and objectivity, MS believes the news of the day need not be staid, overly long or dry. Stories are succinct, readable and written in a lively style that has become a hallmark of the newspaper.
