For August, Entrepreneur.com.ph is featuring Divisoria, one of the city of Manila’s most popular destinations and recognizable landmarks. For many, “Divi” is the marketplace for everything from food to electronics, all at bargain prices. For resourceful and money-savvy entrepreneurs, it’s a suppliers’ haven.
The so-called "ber" months starting from September to December, is less than 2 weeks away and with it comes a more frenzied pace of activity. Entrepreneurs tend to be busy during these last few months of the year in preparation for the holiday season. Typical supplies needed for holiday businesses enjoy their peak season during the "ber" months like baking, garments, gifts, giveaways and packaging.
If you want the best deals in town and are willing to sacrifice convenience and comfort to stretch the value of your peso, there\\\'s still no place like Divisoria. Don\\\'t wait last minute to buy gifts or replenish stock for your business.
Since it is not easy to make the trip to supplier central, below we list down the essential things to bring when heading to downtown Manila.
