Last Gift Gate Store In Philippines To Close
Ringo | On 19, May 2017
“CLOSING OUT SALE. EVERYTHING MUST GO” is the sign that shoppers see in the last Gift Gate store in the Philippines.
The store, which is located in San Juan, is selling all its items until they last. After, the company will leave the Philippines.
Established in 1976, Gift Gate was one of the most popular shops, especially to young girls. It catered cute bags, pencils and much more items featuring cartoon characters like Hello Kitty, My Melody, and Little Twin Stars.
However, as the popularity of the cartoon characters declines, the popularity of the shop follows.
ABS-CBN News anchor Julius Babao and his wife Tintin Bersola visited the branch and made a video.
It was noted by one of the clerks, that the San Juan Branch was the first to make the children happy and the last to bring happiness. It will close down on May 31.
