It has been Wilcon’s aim to be of service to more Filipinos nationwide since its inception in 1977. It opened its first branch near Muñoz (along EDSA) in Quezon City, and has since added several retail outlets in strategic locations within Metro Manila and in the provinces. The Wilcon I.T. Hub brought Wilcon’s total store network to 33.

While the company focused on renovating several of its stores and only opened a single store, last year, Belo said they will be embarking on an aggressive expansion plan with 5 branches opening this year.
