Globe GEN3 Store, SM North Edsa – A quick tour!

Have you been to any of the two recently launched Globe GEN3 stores? You know… the latest and and most innovative establishments from Globe Telecom that has been the talk of the town the past few weeks?

The hype is REAL, folks! Walking into the new Globe GEN3 Store felt more like stepping into an interactive museum than being inside a customer care establishment.
