Upson International Corp. (“Upson” or the “Company”) is committed to maintaining uniform pricing at all of its branches nationwide, despite the current challenges of inflation, fluctuating foreign exchange rates, and logistics costs.
As the country’s leading retailer of personal computers (PCs) and information technology (IT) products, Upson owns and manages a number of well-known retail stores, including Octagon, Micro Valley, Gadget King, and Octagon Mobile. The company also operates specialty and concept stores featuring brands such as Acer, Brother, HP, and Silvertec in select locations.
Upson President and CEO Arlene T. Sy has stated that the company is dedicated to maintaining uniform prices for all of its PC and IT products in all of its branches nationwide. This means that customers will pay the same price for a particular product, regardless of where they are located in the Philippines.
“At Upson, we believe that providing consistent pricing at all of our branches is important for our customers and demonstrates our commitment to their satisfaction,” Sy said.
“Whether you are in Metro Manila, up North in Ilocos, or down South in General Santos, you can trust that you will pay the same price for the same product at any of our Upson retail stores. We are dedicated to providing the best possible customer experience and that includes keeping our prices uniform across all of our branches,” she added.
Upson plans to expand its retail presence by adding 250 stores with approximately 25,000 square meters of additional retail space over the next 3 to 5 years. Coupled with a developed infrastructure on logistics, warehousing, delivery arrangements, and supply chain management, the company adequately manages the logistical cost differentials.
“As a retailer with a nationwide network of over 200 branches to date, we are proud to offer a wide selection of over 13,000 PC and IT products, some of which are exclusively available at our stores,” Sy said.
“Our extensive and efficient supply chain infrastructure allows us to provide our customers with access to these products at uniform prices, no matter where they are located,” she further said.
