K-culture fans rejoice! Korea’s No. 1 Fashion & Lifestyle Brand and the Philippines’ No. 1 K-pop store N.Cat Philippines is at long last open on the second level, Annex A of Glorietta 4. One of their biggest branches in the metro, their flagship store is expected to be bustling with stans hailing from different fandoms on opening day…and we can’t blame them for wanting in on the fun!
From discounts up to 50% off, a giveaway of Enhypen’s’ newly released album ‘Manifesto : Day 1’, and other huge prizes to exciting activities such as a live Random Play Dance; this is a must-attend for every hallyu enthusiast in the area.
Special Opening Sale
There isn’t a better time to shop than on opening day! N.Cat’s grand opening promotion extends the best deals: the first 10 customers are entitled to 50% off their purchase of K-pop albums, while the 11th to 30th to check out will receive 30% off. After the cut-off, a 20% discount on all items is granted to all customers for the entire opening weekend of July 30 to 31.
For those who will be lining up early to secure the biggest price slash, queueing numbers will be distributed starting at 10am today (July 30) exclusively at the Glorietta 1 entrance in front of SM Makati.
‘I Gacha’ Machine
With any amount of purchase, the first 100 customers are welcome to try N.Cat’s ‘I Gacha’ Machine. Depending on your luck, you can score a prize as big as an album of your choice, or even official photo cards! Fashion items, plushies, K-pop finds, and shopping vouchers will also be up for grabs.
Dress Like Your Bias
One tradition N.Cat has been upholding, albeit fairly new, is a unique dress code for their store openings. Customers are encouraged to come in their most stylish idol-inspired outfits with the Dress Like Your Bias contest, where four best-dressed attendees will be chosen to win either a ₱1,000 shopping voucher or a special goodie bag. Now that’s shopping in style!
A special shout out to monster rookie group Enhypen’s fandom Engene, a set of the regular versions of the group’s latest mini album ‘Manifesto : Day 1’, as well as a life-size standee of member Heeseung will be given away on opening day. If you’re eyeing something from a different artist, any album from their K-pop collection will also be there for the taking!
Customers with a minimum purchase of ₱200 are eligible for the raffle. Cut-off is until 4pm on June 30.
Snap a pic at the K-Photo Booth and go home with a souvenir to remember the day forever! Choose from N.Cat’s pre-made frames and have a photo strip printed as a special keepsake. All customers with any amount of purchase are welcome to try the photo booth until 5pm on opening day.
