Gaisano-led Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. (MRSGI) is set to open its newly branded neighborhood mini-mart in Pearl Plaza, Lancaster New City in Barangay Navarro, General Trias, Cavite on August 22.

The Metro Value Mart Lancaster is well positioned to give General Trias communities convenient access to complete basic and affordable goods and groceries. This mini-mart format was developed in response to consumers’ evolving preference to shop closer to home for their basic daily needs.

The Metro Value Mart is ready to serve with ample parking and easy public transport access for the residents in the 15 barangays near Lancaster New City. The new store boasts a well-curated array of international and local goods, general merchandise, home care, health and beauty, and fresh and frozen products in its 1000 sqm. shopping space.

“We are very pleased to have a new Metro store at this location which will provide quick and convenient shopping to the residents and visitors of General Trias, and to the rest of Cavite province. As a highly industrialized and growing province, we are excited to be a part of the Cavite businesses and retail options, and we hope that the addition of the Metro Valuemart will contribute to a more vibrant and thriving local economy,” said Manuel C. Alberto, the President and Chief Operating Officer of MRSGI.
