Two (2) years after its opening, the Philosophy store located at SM Megamall Mega Fashion Hall will be closing permanently after 31st of March 2016. No official announcement has been made but a little bird told me so.
Last night, I visited the branch because I received a text message that all Philosophy items are on sale (
30% 50% discount) until the end of March. I miss using the Purity 3-in-1 cleanser so I checked if it’s in stock. Unfortunately, the item has been discontinued (but I don’t understand why they still have it on display). I looked for another cleanser instead and the only alternative they could offer was the Total Matteness Mattifying Cleanser + Mask. That’s when the saleslady told me the reason behind the store sale and the limited availability of stocks. I asked what happened and the lady just told me it was a business loss issue. Earlier this month, the Philosophy branch in Greenbelt Makati closed down.
I wanted to buy more items since it might be the last time I shop at Philosophy. But due to limited stocks and the prices of the remaining items, I decided to just purchase the Cleanser + Mask.
I know there are a lot of people who loves the skincare products they offer, but maybe the demand is not enough to keep the business going. If you’re one of those people, take advantage of their 30% discount on all items. I am not sure though if they will still accept discount cards. Remember, Philosophy will only be open until the 31st of March 2016.
So maybe this is goodbye, Philosophy. I will always remember the first time I entered your lovely store.
I got another text message from Philosophy announcing the closing of the store this month. And instead of 30% off, they changed it to 50%.
