We hope you are safe, in good spirits, and most of all, in good health.
Though it might seem that 2020 is a challenging year, we, at #TeamAKABA have nothing but high hopes for what's to come. After all, what we do is built on the prized values of a Filipino spirit: sipag (hard work), tiyaga (perseverance) and bayanihan (heroism).
We're Closing Our Stores (For Now)
Last January 2019, we were operating a network of six retail outlets in Metro Manila and Cebu. Before the declaration of the quarantine last March 2020, and the (temporary) closure of our stores, we have been operating a total of fifteen (15) branches, 2 of which are in South Luzon: our second region targeted for expansion.
We're Prioritising the Well-Being of Our Employees
Our team saw it fit to temporarily halt our mall retail, and manufacturing units so our workers will be safe at home, protected from the transmission of the dreaded virus. Together with the National Government, we are working towards providing compensation for all employees to help them through this difficult period.We apologise for any inconveniences this may have caused you, but rest assured, we will be more than ready to address them once we resume full operational capacity.
We're Still Here!
Our digital marketing and sales team are all working from home to assist you with your queries. You can still reach us by email, or through our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram! We've also drafted a new FAQ section to accommodate concerns that may be particular to our current situation of enhanced community quarantine.
You Can Still Shop Online
Despite the current situation, we're still pushing through with our amazing line up of deals and promotions in time for the summer! Please do monitor our social media pages and our website for updated inventory statuses, and listed promos.
In the following days, we will be developing our new online live webcast to discuss relevant, timely issues, and most specially, sustainable social entrepreneurship. We're absolutely excited to launch this, but for now, this is the most we can let out.
