From its first department store in Colon st, homegrown Metro Stores of VICSAL Group of Companies has gone a long way from its humble beginnings in the early 80’s. It has established itself as the favorite grocery and department store of Cebuanos with branches in the cities of Lapulapu, Carcar, Toledo, Bogo and Naga as well as in the town of Carmen. It has also expanded in key cities in the Visayas and even in southern Luzon and Mega Manila.
