Big Garment Warehouse Sale in Meycuayan, Bulacan

Gummybear: Christmas is not complete without bombardment of SALES, DISCOUNTS, PROMOS etc. It is definitely worth a year of saving. Lots of eye popping low prices for apparrels, appliances and etc which you can't help buying even though some are not needed. This is our Confessions of a near-Shopaholic.

Butterfinger: Well, as for myself, I tend to pass off on sales and discounts. Call it a guy thing, or whatever you want. I go into a store that I already planned to go to, I look for the stuff I need, on sale or not I go to the cashier and pay. Pretty much straight forward. So hearing about this one didn't excite me, or so I thought... One plus though was the fact that Sir Anton of OAP blogged about it.

Gummybear: I saw the ad  on the Internet that the Big Garment Warehouse in Meycuayan, Bulacan is on sale, it became popular because of Mr. Anton from who gave good feedback from this place.

Gummybear: We actually had doubts going there because 1.) It's definitely far. 2.) We don't have that much money, but we thought that this is something we shouldn't miss.

Butterfinger: There truly were points of arguments between Gummybear and I. Yes, it was a great deal on paper, but would the distance and trouble be worth it? Told ya sales didn't fancy for my tastes, even more so without much money to spare. But in the end, Gummybear's infinitely powerful charm persuaded me into going to the sale. The commute wasn't as hard as I imagined it to be, and this is coming from someone who would rather take a car than become human sardines on the LRT.

Gummybear: We went there via commute because it was more cost efficient than bringing a car. Another adventure awaits. Actually, it wasn't difficult to commute. We went first to Monumento via LRT, from there a 10-min walk to 7-11, where the jeep terminal to Sto. Nino waits. We told the jeepney driver to drop us on Sterling Compound. It's around 30 - 40 minutes travel time. Thank God that we arrived safe. From the Sterling Compound gate we asked the security guard where we could find the Star Trends Big Garment Sale. He pointed us to this BIG GREEN GATE and then we saw a huge number of cars parked around. By that moment, we now know that this is the place.

Gummybear: Once we went inside, we first, applied for membership. It was a requirement before we could do shopping spree. Don't worry, its FREE. Ms. Divine, the one who's in-charge gave us two membership cards. (PICTURE)

Gummybear: We had the Harry Potter look when he first arrived at Hogwarts. We were  amazed at how big the place was and didn't know where to start. We saw a lot of people looking and turning pile of clothes in search of a GEM. I saw a girl hurriedly get this cute shirt saying, "Baka maunahan pa!" Definitely, this is SOMETHING we shouldn't miss. Low Low prices! A lot of branded apparels for the men and ladies. They also had a huge selection for kids. We were so lucky that we went there on their first opening so we had the chance to find some great stuff. Mango, Zara, Polo, Emporio Armani, Gap, Levis and a lot more. Some of them were not known but definitely high quality. 

Butterfinger: Wow! just Wow! I imagined it to be a little, lets say, minor. But warehouse sale it truly is. And just the sight of the number of people would seem to bring truth to the ads on the net. Just look at how people shop, by the boxes!

Gummybear: Butterfinger also saw a lot of great finds. Loving the sale? :) We just picked all the clothes that we liked as we roamed around the place and then sorted it out according to our budget. Aside from the clothes, Butterfinger also enjoyed the boxes people dragged around what he called "alaga" it's the basket that has a tie so it was not hard to carry you'll just drag it. 

Butterfinger: The sale was bigger than I originally thought. The environment, the people, the prices, all were simply screaming "buy now!". As it is, I couldn't resist snooping around for possible buys. Yes, I admit, I enjoyed plowing through countless clothes just to find my size. One of the few moments I literally dove in the pile of clothes. 

Gummybear: They also gave us FREE LUNCH and UNLIMITED SOFTDRINKS! Cool right? Definitely, this is the Great Bulacan Sale!

Butterfinger: Great sale/event all in all. Heck, they even treated everyone with a free lunch and softdrinks to boot. I ended up buying about 2000Php worth of clothes. A lot of polo shirts, t-shirts, a jacket for Gummybear and more. Big Garment sale indeed, just wished we came earlier, the big sized pants were gone by noon!

Gummybear: I bought 1 pants, 2 tops, 1 polo shoes, 1 men's shorts (as a gift for him) for 1500 Butterfinger bought 3 shirts, 2 shorts, 1 jacket (as a gift to me) for 2500. Looking forward for next bargain sale.
