President Rodrigo Duterte commended grocery chain Puregold Price Club Inc. for assisting small businesses during uncertain times.
On Wednesday, Duterte graced the Puregold Sari-Sari Store Negosyo Convention 2022 held at the World Trade Center Lobby in Pasay City.
“Let me express my immense gratitude to Puregold not only for conducting this event, but also for making it the company’s fundamental purpose to assist small businesses like the sari-sari stores,” the Chief Executive said in his speech.
He hoped that that Puregold, cofounded by businessman Lucio Co and his wife Susan in 1998, would continue to devise enabling business practices for its customers and stakeholders.
“It is also my desire that, as it has always been in the past, Puregold will remain a dedicated partner of the government in working for a progressive economy that every Filipino may enjoy,” said Duterte.
The 14th staging of Puregold’s Negosyo Convention is part of the “Tindahan Ni Aling Puring” program, a customized and holistic membership program that provides products, services, and trainings for owners of small businesses like sari-sari stores, karinderyas, wholesalers, and resellers.
