With the ongoing expansion of PSC in Visayas, Bohol is the fourth major island where 7-Eleven will open its doors. PSC started its expansion outside Luzon in 2012 in Cebu, 2013 in Bacolod, 2014 in Iloilo, and 2015 in Boracay.
PSC targets to open 7 more stores in Bohol by the end of the year, and is looking at a total of 30 stores in the next 3 years.
“It’s definitely the right time for us to bring 7-Eleven to Bohol, as it’s brimming with potential, evident in the increase of tourist arrivals and the overall developments happening in the island.” , Jose Victor Paterno, President and CEO of PSC said.
Within Bohol, PSC will concentrate on opening stores in Tagbiliran, Tubigon, and Calape for this year, and more provinces in Eastern Visayas next year.
Now at 268 stores, PSC hopes to close the year with 300 stores in Visayas by making the most out of the first-mover advantage in Central and Western Visayas.
7-Eleven continues to increase in number especially in the Visayas region, not to mention their dominant presence in Luzon and strong emergence in Mindanao. With PSC’s aggressive expansion across the country, PSC continues to bring the 7-Eleven brand of modern convenience to more communities around the Philippines.
