I probably spend more money at S & R than any other single food source in Manila at the moment so I was thrilled to receive an email notice that they are planning a massive “Power Price-Off” Sale this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I don’t normally plug commercial announcements unless I use the products/services myself, so you can be sure that I will be at S & R when the doors open this Friday. And stocks are quite high, from what I could see the last time I was in the store. The sale is good for all current members but non-members can also shop on those sale days (with a 5% fee added to the bill). If you plan to buy cartloads of stuff, it would be worth it to get a membership before then… The sale is on at all four branches: Fort Bonifacio, Alabang, Congressional Avenue and Paranaque. Happy shopping!

    Do not forget the old saying “early bird catches the best worm!” Have a great day at S & R you all.

    Wow thanks for the tip! Got a membership card last January but I’ve only been there twice this year. I absolutely love their Bulla yoghurt.

    Crumbmaster, I agree with you on most blanket store email announcements and promotions, but I should have mentioned in the post that the email I received was from S & R Management, so I am pretty sure this is a legitimate and product heavy sale… I think they have a pretty good idea that I spend a whole lot in the store…heehee :) But the proof will be the number of carts I fill up on Friday morning… Oh, and on the second comment, I wonder if I would ever be able to put together a line of artisanal tropical fruit jams…but I suspect I would make so few per batch a smaller food shop or deli or mail order might be more my likely distribution channel…my pricing would be nosebleed material, I’m sure… :)

    oh goodness, what temptation! Do I go on Friday and lug the stuff across town, or wait till Sunday (like Joey) and see what remains? Times like these I wish the car wasn’t coded on Friday!

  7. Marketman says:

    abby, honestly, I can’t recall. But they have double cream or almost clotted thickness for just PHP115 or so, very reasonable!

    I was at S&R Paranaque last week to get a membership (got a free bottle of Smuckers for signing-up). The person at the customer service did mention about a sale that’ll happen this week. Few people were shopping, probably around 15 or so. Thanks for reminding!

    For Abby, the Lemnos yogurt at S&R is about P500 for a tub (I think it’s a gallon, but Joey can set me straight). And sometimes they have the smaller cups of thick yogurt with fruit toppings (mango and passionfruit). Those run about P100++

    I just noticed some Bulla yogurt and cream at Rustan’s supermarket in Katipunan. Didn’t get to check out the prices though. Rustan’s also replenished their chocolate chip/baking bars. Oh, Ghirardhelli unsweetened chocolate baking bars are available too (for those like me who have not tried it).

    how much is the membership??

  13. Marketman says:

    apple, I think it is PHP700 for first member, and PHP400 for a spouse or member of same household if you want a second card…

  14. fritzie says:

    hi, so its PHP700 for the first member, what the meaning of that? My husband can’t come in without a membership? or can come in?

  15. Marketman says:

    fritzie, PHP700 or so gets you one membership card, your husband or family member or a friend for that matter can accompany you into the store, but you are the only one that can pay using your card or cash…in theory anyways…
