Business membership, meanwhile, will be suited for sari-sari stores, restaurants, carinderias, minimarts, hotels, offices, canteens, LGUs, hospitals, catering services, etc. Individual membership will be suited for any individual who opts to buy supplies in bulk or by the case for household consumption, or for any of their wholesale requirements from time to time for special events.
Wholesale customers may also opt to purchase items directly at the MM Logistics Distribution Center. The new hub will service both MM Wholesale Club members and the retail branches of the MerryMart Group.
Hannah Yulo-Luccini, CFO of MerryMart, said the MM Wholesale Club is expected to significantly increase the volume and scale of the MM Group and further increase its efficiencies and improve margins.
