Building Big Ideas in Products and Services
Along with the opening of Sta. Rosa branch, is the launch of Wilcon Digi. Wilcon Digi is a network created to be accessed inside Wilcon stores. When a user connects to Wilcon Digi through a smartphone, he or she will be linked to a portal of information about the store, corporate values, news and events, services, product information, and practical home tips.
Aside from being introduced to this innovation, customers can also expect the same quality services that can be found at every Wilcon Depot store. Living up to their tagline, “building big ideas,” they embody this sentiment through a superior shopping experience. Organized, clutter-free, large, and comfortable setting, every shopper will have a myriad of brands to choose from. Visible inside are helpful directional signages and directory that make shopping be done with ease. There is a visual delight in the various product showrooms, and the presentation of Wilcon exclusive brands such as Grohe and Kohler Sanitarywares, Franke Kitchen Systems, Pozzi Bathroom Solutions, Koller Bathtubs and Shower Accessories, Ariston Water Heaters, Rocersa and Grespania Tiles, and Heim Furniture and Home Interior products.
Wilcon stores offer more value added services such as free parking spaces and reliable delivery service. The company also prides itself of the Design Hub, a service that allows customers to create their own design through a computer software with cost estimates and product lists made available inside the store. Customers can also become members of the Wilcon Loyalty Card Program where they can earn points for every purchase and enjoy exclusive member perks. In partnership with Rubi Tile Cutters, Wilcon also offers tile cutting services for only a minimal fee, to help homebuilders with their home projects.
“Without the invaluable support of our local and international suppliers, our partner architects, engineers, interior designers, contractors, developers, and of course our valued customers, Wilcon would not be what it is today. We thank all of you for your continued support and patronage.” said Wilcon Founder and Chairman William Belo.
