Same signature service from the heart and a whole lot of items—these, in essence, are the things that await shoppers at the newly renovated WalterMart E. Rodriguez in New Manila, Quezon City.
The brand’s flagship mall, built in 1992, recently underwent a face-lift to bring a bright, sunny look to its retail space spanning 7,000 square meters. SM Prime Holdings, Inc. executive committee chairman Hans Sy and QC councilor Irene Belmonte led the reopening on June 25.
WalterMart E. Rod implements the brand’s 5S program (Screening, Shield, Sanitation, Social Distancing, and Service Heart) to assure customers of a safe shopping experience. To further put shoppers’ minds at ease, WalterMart says employees wearing the Ingat Angat button pins have been vaccinated.
In the store, wide aisles are designed for a seamless and relaxed shopping, while other features such as designated pick-up points via the curbside pick-up program, contactless parking, and QR code scanning make shopping more convenient for customers. Those who prefer to shop online can go to www.waltermartdelivery.com which currently offers free delivery with minimum purchase of P2,000 (use the code WMEROD) and P150 off for P3,000 spend (WMEROD150) until July 25.
The mall boasts a robust mix of products from groceries and home appliances, to services and food selections. The widest assortment of essential goods are housed in the flagship store’s supermarket, including fresh produce, international products, healthy and organic items, and restaurant food items from WalterMart Supermarket’s partners Shakeys, Goldilocks, and more.
The department store and the Abenson appliance store carry over a thousand items including home appliances and work-from-home essentials. Watsons, Handyman, Mr. DIY, and Cyberzone complete the stores present in the New Manila mall.
From farm to store
WalterMart works directly with farmers for a steady supply of fresh produce offered in the supermarket and at the Palengke Fresh weekend farmer’s market in the mall. “The reopening of WalterMart E. Rodriguez simply brings us back to our roots, why we do what we do—to serve and be a partner in uplifting the lives of the communities that we serve,” said Jerico Buning, general manager and senior vice president of operations.
WalterMart said it was the first supermarket to have hydroponics system installed in its store to ensure the freshness of its produce.
