Have you been to Sportshouse lately? I did! A little over a week ago, I had the chance to revisit the Sportshouse branch in SM Megamall Bldg. A, through the invitation of the good people of Sportshouse.
Sportshouse is a local sports retail merchandise store which sells sports equipment, gears and apparel. I have come to know this store as a “go-to” shop for one’s badminton or sports/gym needs. But with the latest visit, I was glad to know that the store’s management decided to expand their line to include products catering to runners, cyclists, swimmers and triathletes as well.
Did you know that they carry the SKINS brand of compression wear? They do! Apart from SKINS, they developed their own brands which aim to provide Filipino athletes and sports enthusiasts a more cost-effective alternative than the imported brands. They say these products are cheaper but n still boast of the quality and performance that any person in an active lifestyle expect.
Read on the below press release for you to have an idea of what these products are or better yet, do visit any of Sportshouse’s 36 branches and see and get a feel of the products on hand!
