There’s no question that online shopping has been a boon to the existence of shopaholics everywhere. It presents a lot of benefits – from convenience to lower prices. However, there’s no question that part of the whole shopping experience is browsing through shelves of products and actually touching and trying products on. This is something that you have to sacrifice if you’re going to shop online.
Well, the Zaril Lifestyle Store has found the perfect concept to solve this problem. Their unique concept is to put up a “department store” that serves as the physical store for some of the best online shops in the country.
Sure, you’ll be sacrificing the convenience of shopping online, but it’s still pretty convenient to be able to browse the offerings of more than two dozen online shops in just one location. It’s like having more than a dozen Instagram feeds in the palm of your hand.
Thanks to the Zaril Lifestyle Store, you wouldn’t be limited to just browsing on your phone. You can actually touch the products, compare them side by side, and try them on.
There are other benefits to this setup offered by the Zaril Lifestyle Store. You don’t have to worry about getting scammed by an online seller. You don’t have to send money and hope and pray that the product will arrive. In addition, you don’t have to pay for expensive shipping fees.
About Zaril Lifestyle Store
Zaril brings together some of the country’s top online shops and puts them together in one physical location. On that note, make that three physical locations – Maginhawa, Fairview and *insert drumroll here* Lipa City!
Just to give you an idea as to what to expect, the store was named as one of the 25 Exciting New Stores in Manila in 2015 by spot.ph. Oh, and they were also featured in WhenInManila.
Yes, we can now experience their modern shopping concept! According to Iza Alberto, they decided to put up a store in the province to expand the reach of their concept. With the intelligent fashion sense of Lipeños, it’s easy to see why they chose Lipa City as their first provincial location.
Here are some pictures that we took when they opened:
We were invited to their opening last June 15, 2016 and as expected, there was already a line outside the shop minutes before it formally opened. There were excited faces everywhere as everyone was already peeking to see racks after racks of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories and even novelty items. There are good deals everywhere you look. The prices are student-friendly which is perfect considering that it’s located in front of De La Salle.
Here are the online shops that are selling their products at Zaril Lipa as of June 2016:
The Zaril Lifestyle Store is one of those places that you have to visit to appreciate. If you’re a shopaholic or you’re just someone looking for a great find at an affordable price, do yourself a favor and check it out. You can thank me later.
