Look inside Crate & Barrel at Mega Fashion Hall
Posted on

It’s a great time to be a home owner in Manila.
After the opening of Pottery Barn in Taguig last July, this November saw the opening of H&M Home at Robinsons Magnolia and Crate & Barrel at Mega Fashion Hall.
Crate & Barrel comes to the Philippines through a partnership with SM Retailer subsidiary HMS Development Corporation. Based on this agreement, the next Crate & Barrel stores will open in the country during the first quarter of 2015.
I was lucky to have been invited to its launch last November 19 at the 4th level of Mega Fashion Hall.
I arrived before ribbon cutting.

I made sure to stand right in front of the ribbon to be the first customer inside.

What I bought: a pair of outdoor stools for our courtyard. Nice price, at three or six months to pay, 0% interest.

Opened in 1962 in Chicago, Illinois by Gordon and Carole Segal, Crate & Barrel was inspired by the simple, well-designed, affordable products the couple had purchased during their honeymoon in Europe.
The Segals called their home furnishings store ‘Crate & Barrel’ after the shipping crates and barrels, which brought their inventory and became their first store fixtures.

Working directly with European ateliers and factories to import their products, Crate & Barrel was among the first retailers to make modern tabletop and kitchenwares affordable to American consumers.
Today, Crate & Barrel is internationally known for exclusive housewares and furniture designs, excellent value and superb customer service.
Owned by the Otto Group of Hamburg, Germany, since 1998, the company operates stores in most major North American markets as well as international franchise locations in Dubai, Singapore, Mexico, and now in the Philippines.

Crate & Barrel now open at the 4th level of Mega Fashion Hall.

Off-topic, but those ribbon-cutting scissors are pretty. Haha. Wonder where I can get those.
