This is the Season for Shopping

November 10, 2018 – Hannah Francesca M. Arcenal

While Christmas is just a month away, early preparations for the holidays has begun. Christmas lights and decorations are being put up as well as Christmas tree lightings in different malls and establishments are held as early as now. Even more, Filipinos have started with their early Christmas shopping for gifts as part of the huge preparation for the most awaited day of the year.

While shopping at malls is part of the preparation for the upcoming holidays, online shopping is a whole new conventional way to shop for gifts which does not involve traffic jams, long lines, and going outside of your comfortable homes. What makes online shopping so convenient is that anyone can shop anywhere.

Last November 8, one of the biggest distribution companies in the Philippines, the Primer Group of Companies partners with Lazada to bring some of its top and premium brands closer to its customers.

Lazada is one of the largest online shopping and selling destination in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, and partnering with Primer Group will make it easier to cater its products to Filipinos.

“As Primer Group continues to venture into e-commerce, we are ecstatic and proud to partner with Lazada. We believe that this collaboration will be mutually beneficial for both of us, such that we can both continue to deliver superior customer experience to online shoppers here and abroad,” Vice President for Philippine Retail Brand and Marketing Group Paul Sy expressed.
