Sorsogueño homeowners and builders now have more options for their home improvement and building needs as Wilcon Depot, the country's giant construction supplies retailer, celebrates the opening of its first store in Sorsogon province. 

On July 30, 2021, Wilcon Depot opened the Sorsogon branch located at Sitio Sirangan, Brgy. Macabog, Sorsogon City, serving as the company's 68th retail outlet nationwide and its fifth store opening this year.

Store Opening Celebration

"Wilcon ensures that we always provide what Filipinos deserve, and so, as we open our new store in Sorsogon City, Sorsogueños can expect the best product selection of home and building solutions, as well as exceptional customer experience from Wilcon Depot. We are here to help them build, improve, and refine their homes for a sustainable and comfortable life," said Wilcon Depot SEVP-COO Rosemarie Bosch-Ong.
