Sports and Fashion DEPOTS
For Discount Hunters out there, this might be an interesting place for you. A growing community of Paseo de Sta. Rosa offers a wide array of choices on sports apparel and other sporting goods, swim wear and branded clothing all for discounted prices. Brands with depots here are North Face, Dunlop, Levi's, Dockers, Adidas, Nike, Speedo, Gas, United Colors of Benetton, AND 1 and Mizuno. Discount rates range from 20% - 50%. If you get lucky, sometimes you can also chance upon a 70% discount. Most of the stores replenish their stocks on wednesdays or fridays. Thus, you may drop by a day after any of these two days. Normally, buyers flock on weekends so if you'll visit on saturday or sunday make sure you'll be there early. Stores open at 10:00 am and close at 9:00 pm.
