    Kung saan wala ka

    Emilio S. Lim

    Curious lang ako kasi tuwing napapadaan ako sa mga tindahan ng Emilio S. Lim, ewan ko ba pero dungis na dungis ako... ano bang tinitinda nila? second hand? Natanaw ko yung ibang appliances mukhang bago pa naman pero ang dungis dungis ng pagkakaayos ng tindahan na to.. tska napaka strategic naman ng pangalan ng store niya talagang "Emilio S. Lim" pa unang dinig mo pa lang alam mo ng appliance store na..

    mga nagpapautang/ hulugan ng mga appliances sa mga kapwa mong pinoy na MADUNGIS din.

    let's face it, their major clientelle are the low income earners. mga willing bumili ng mga kagamitan at higher than SM prices. provided eh hulug hulugan nila.

    so i guess it's a moar decent 5- 6

    i guess they figure if they make ther stores as nice as SM's e magdadalawan isip na pumunta ang mga kapwa mong pinoy na madungis... ya?

    Paki explain nga ito? Paano naman naging tunog appliance ito?

    Matagal na sa negosyo ng appliances ang Emilio S. Lim. They pass on the savings from an ostentatious showroom to the low income buyer. And any business which is good enough to be given the name of it's owner is good enough for me.

    Ang garbage appliances eh yung mga surplus appliance sellers all over the city. Yung ukay ukay na mga appliances that sell a 21" tv for P5,000. and sira na siya after 6 months.

    ^^di ba siya rin yung may-ari ng 680 Dept Store ba 'yun?

  7. #7
    Yup, he owned 680 Home Appliances.

    I can still remember the ad jingle vividly. Hehe.

    Panget talaga sa forums, hirap malaman kung sarcastic ka o hindi.. I was actually trying to be sarcastic.

    Anyway thanks for the info, now I understand kung bakit ganon sila.

    mga nagpapautang/ hulugan ng mga appliances sa mga kapwa mong pinoy na MADUNGIS din.
    I hope you're not trying to make it sound na iniimply kong madungis din ang bumibili dun ha.

    Minsan kasi sa isang business, wala sa presentation yan. Nasa business model kaya pinupuntahan ng mga tao.

    Tingnan mo na lang yung CDR-King, puro basura mga tinda nila. Mukhang bodega na, ang init pa sa loob. Pero dinudumog ng mga tao. Marami kasing piratang mahilig mag-burn. Makakabili ka ba ng murang blank CD/DVDs sa National Bookstore?

    Tingnan mo yung mga pirated CDs, tinitinda lang sa bangketa. Pero ang daming customer!

    Isipin mo na lang, kung hindi kumikita yang Emilio S. Lim, matagal na sanang nagsara yan. Mahal din ang bayad sa mga mall at building space ha. At marami silang franchise! Ibig sabihin, malaki ang market nila.

    Lastly, kung isa kang computer hobbyist, siguro alam mo na ang dudungis ng mga tindahan ng computer spare parts sa GILMORE! Para kang nasa Divisoria. Nung pumunta ako dun, akala ko nga maho-holdap ako dun sa loob mismo ng building eh.

    So wala sa hitsura yan, brad.

    Usually kase, pag maganda yung lugar, maganda din yung presyo. Kalimitan pinapasa nila yung cost nung pagpapaganda nung establishment nila dun sa tinitinda nila. So parang ikaw na rin ang nagbayad nung hitsura ng store nila.

    I remember nung naglibot kami sa Hong Kong to do some electronics shopping, parang Raon din yung mga electronics shops dun. Pero pagdating mo sa Manila, sasabihin mo, "Uy, binili ko pa sa Hong Kong yan!"

    Emilio S. Lim was my professor back in UP Dil. His businesses really are meant for the lower-income brackets. Think Ikea for appliances - they pass on their savings (from decor, superfluous displays, etc) to the customer. Plus on installment basis pa *** mas affordable sa masa.

    I'm sure you'll see his showrooms in a different light kapag nakita mo ang bahay nyan. His La Vista mansion is huge.

    tama ka dyan brad, wala sa hitsura yan tignan mo yung avatar ko.
    madalas ako mapagkamalan na terorista di nila alam terorista lang ako
    ng kaning lamig. sa totoo lang ok lang naman kung bumili nang appliance ng hulugan atleast maayos na investment ang appliances ang importante de kaledad ang mga binebenta. syempre kanya kanyang budget yan kung talagang mahal sa mall syempre merong ESL dito sa amin sa Laguna marami pa din bumibili , nung nagititingin din ako appliance muntik na ako mapadaan kaso nung nakapag inquire wala dun yung type ko na ref model at tv kaya I end up going to abenson festival mall thru my gf's cc ( misis ko na ngayon ) we had a good investment of a tv and ref before our wedding for christmas last year.

    tama cdr king is not your vip type store but just like a regular booth but wth! their customers are from different sides of the city. bakit porke ba nakatsinelas at pambahay lang sa mall wala na kaagad pambili ? actually those who dress in a simple manner had tons of high end credit cards and shopping money they just want to make themselves blend in the crowd as plain mallers to avoid being noticed by bad elements such as pick pockets and hold uppers.

    let us not be judgmental ( tama ba pagbaybay ko ? )

    Check *** this forumite said "kapwa mong pinoy na MADUNGIS." Filipino ka ba? Kung Filipino kung magsalita ka parang hindi. Kundi naman, this is PINOYEXCHANGE. I don't think you're supposed to be here just bash the word "pinoy." This is a racist remarks...
