Philip Stein’s News On Global Boutique Opening in Pasig City, Philippines
With the exciting news of Philip Stein’s global expansion into 25 different countries, it might surprise you to learn that the largest market for Philip Stein, outside of the US, is the Philippines. Will Stein, owner of the Philip Stein Company recently flew into the Philippines to celebrate the opening of a new spa-like boutique on the ground level of The Podium in Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
This wasn’t Will Stein’s first trip to the Philippines. His first was in 2007. But Stein was very enthusiastic about this global boutique, and he told PhilStar.com, “I am as excited as you guys are with the opening of this shop. I always get emotional when I see the name ‘Philip Stein’ on the façade of the store.”
When Stein arrived, he was greeted by Emerson Yao, managing director of Lucerne. Lucerne is the exclusive distributor of Philip Stein watches. The gentlemen were both excited to see the large group of Philip Stein fans who had gathered at the boutique, hours before it opened.
In an interview at the grand opening, Will Stein said “Philip Stein is growing phenomenally in Manila. Opening a boutique will provide the customers with the right venue where they can learn more about the brand,” says Mr. Stein.
Philip Stein Launches “Feel It – Project Red Cross”
A strong proponent of fighting poverty in the Philippines, Philip Stein has launched the “Feel It – Project Red Cross” campaign last year, a program which aims to benefit the blood services program of the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC).
The project was born out of Mr. Stein’s strong desire to help improve the lives of impoverished Filipinos. Under the project, Philip Stein will produce and sell a new line of limited edition Philip Stein “Red” watches. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these watches will benefit the PNRC. “We fully support the PNRC in providing quality life-saving services that protect the life and the dignity of everyone, particularly indigent Filipinos who are in vulnerable situations,” says Stein.
