S&R Iloilo opens on Dec. 16, 2016

After more than two years of being a "rumor" S&R Membership Shopping finally opens in Iloilo this coming Dec. 16, 2016. Two more days to go and Ilonggos will have a new shopping experience...
S&R is a membership shopping store that only members can gain entry and shop (and dine inside). It is patterned after warehouse stores in the US that sees a whole range of products from grocery items to furniture plus bakeshop and delicatessen.
An estimated 80% of the goods sold is imported mainly from the US so this is like a US balikbayan box but you have the control of what's inside.
