From a bakery producing fresh Filipino bread daily to a mobile section, garment section, and cosmetic section, the supermarket has become a comprehensive destination for all things Filipino.
Branches and Accessibility The journey of the Philippine Supermarket began with its inaugural branch in Al Satwa, Dubai, in 2005. Recognizing the growing demand for Filipino goods and services, particularly among the Filipino expatriate community, the founders resolved to extend their reach. This led to the establishment of the Muraqqabat branch, strategically positioned to better serve the Filipino population in Dubai.

From authentic Filipino delicacies to an extensive range of non-food items, the supermarket stands as a one-stop destination for all things Filipino.
