Medical Depot sets out to reach a new milestone for the company by stepping out of its main store in Bambang, Manila to install branches in other communities nationwide.

Medical Depot President and Chief Executive Officer, Rodolfo MedinaJr., said the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic had become an eye-opener to the company as it realized its importance in the medical sector and the community, as well.

Medinasaid providing quality and affordable medical supplies and equipment has always been Medical Depot’s mission since its conception, and in this pandemic, the company gears up to make these medical products even more available and easily accessible to the market through the opening of at least 35 stores in malls and commercial establishments.

Medical Depot targets to open 40 outlets nationwide by the end of 2021, and 100 by the end of 2023, he added.

Aside from physical stores to be opened around the country, Medical Depot also sets to make its presence felt in the online platform.

“With our continuous efforts in bringing affordable and high-quality medical supplies and equipment to every Filipino, our team launched different web and mobile applications to provide the most convenient way of online shopping with easy access to our products,” said Melvin Torrefiel, SVP for Digital Operations.

Torrefiel said the company aims to provide the public and the medical community a one-stop shop for medical supplies and equipment through e-commerce.

“Our one-stop medical shop brand is now available in digital spaces such as YouTube, Lazada, Shoppee and Facebook. Our extensive experience in digital space will bring Medical Depot nationwide and reach more Filipinos in the country,” he said.

Medical Depot takes pride in its ability to provide quality medical products and equipment at affordable prices.

Medical Depot Vice President Jeffrey Kua said that aside from the over-the-counter purchases that can be made in Medical Depot’s physical stores, clients will be shown the list of its products and equipment through its online menu in case certain medicines, medical supplies or equipment is not physically available in stores.

All the customer has to do is select the products they need and Medical Depot will deliver them right at their doorstep, Kua added.

Kua also shared that the company plans to partner with third-party applications such as Grab Mart and Pick-a-roo for its continuous expansion in the e-commerce platform. —/mbmf
