The much talked about S&R Membership Shopping finally opened here in Cagayan de Oro last July 28, 2016. It is located at Zone 5, Barangay Kauswagan, Butuan-CDO-Iligan Road, Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental. S&R is described as a treasure hunt of shopping values but you can only enjoy these if you are a member of their establishment.
There are 2 types of membership cards:
- Gold Membership - available to individuals 18 years old and above Membership fee is P700, valid for 12 months from the date of enrollment of primary cardholder. Gold member may add one extension card at P400 fee.
- Business Membership - available to business owners and managers; allows the purchase of products for business, personal and resale use. It costs P900 with one (1) free add-on card, valid for 12 months from the date of enrollment of primary cardholder. You can add 3 additional cardholders to existing business membership account.
Once you are a member of S&R, you can enjoy a lot of benefits and perks not only in Cagayan de Oro but to all S&R branches. You also get to enjoy exclusive deals and discounts including imported items. Also, when you sign up for membership, they will give you the value coupon booklet with more than 65,000 in shopping values.
Prior to their opening, S&R invited members from the media and I was fortunate to be a part of it. We were given a tour of the site by the VP for Operations, Mr. Greg Keyer. After which, we had a brief press conference.
I bet some of you already visited S&R but to some of you who did not go there yet, let me show you a picture video I made. I hope this will help you decide which items to buy when you are going to shop at S&R.
And oh, by the way, did it ever occur to your mind what S&R stands for? I was thinking it was all about Shop and Retail but I know it was not correct. So I googled it and found the answer. It actually stands for the name of the founder: Sol and Robert Price, founders of the Price Club, which has since merged with Costco. Costco is actually a part owner of S&R. So there, now we know ;-)
Have Fun Shopping guys!
