And just in time for the holidays, it officially opened its newly renovated flagship store along Governor Sales Street. Now here’s why you need to pay a visit (and book a flight if you must).

For starters, this 37,000 square foot store was designed in collaboration with the retail design specialist, Moss Manila. It’s a glorious three-storey building that houses everything you’d possibly need—from ladies wear and menswear, to beauty, children and home—to ensure a delightful shopping adventure.

This shopping haven carries over a hundred well-known brands, many of which are exclusive to Chimes Boutiques (meaning you won’t be able to find some of these unique and high quality items anywhere else). And speaking of exclusivity, the store also carries the latest collections of our beloved local designers, including Charina Sarte, Patty Ang, Maureen Disini, Joyce Orena, and Jeffrey Rogrador.
