Globe GEN3 Store in Greenbelt 3 – The first two-storey GEN3 store in the country

Remember when Globe opened their first GEN3 Store? If you’ve ever been inside any of Globe’s revolutionary concept stores, you would agree that your first experience inside this place was that of awe and amazement. And I’m not just talking about how Globe has transformed the establishment into an aesthetically breathtaking active space… I’m talking about the overall experience, right down to how customers were kept entertained and promptly serviced.

And because one can truly never have enough of a good thing, the number 1 mobile brand in the country and undisputed leader in the digital space continues to bring world-class retail experience to more customers nationwide as it opens its first two-storey Globe GEN3 Store in Greenbelt 3, Makati. This happens to be their 4th GEN3 store since it launched back in December of last year.

This is great news for Globe customers and subscribers alike who frequent this part of the metro.
