Metro Gaisano – Colon

leave a comment »

The first department store opened by Victor Gaisano, Metro Colon still stands in the original location it was first established in 1982. The store was originally three stories, but after only two years, a supermarket was added, along with four more floors. Today, the top floor is home to an arcade and an expansive food court.

The area, on Colon Street, where the store stands, along P. Lopez Street and Osmeña streets is still one of the busiest areas in downtown Cebu City, and Metro Gaisano stands directly in the crossroads.

From one store in 1982, Gaisano now boasts stores in Cagayan de Oro City, Legazpi, Lucena, Butuan, Iloilo, Davao City, General Santos, Tacloban, Ormoc, and Tagum City.

Metro Gaisano, Gaisano Capital, and Gaisano Grand all operate under the same company but are managed by different members of the Gaisano family.
