Shell recently opened the second of its next generation of retail stations in Banilad, Cebu City as it strengthens its mission to make a Filipino motorist’s life’s journey a better one.
“For 105 years, Shell has kept its commitment to nation-building, hand in hand with the Filipino people,”Pilipinas Shell Retail General Manager Anthony Lawrence Yam shared.
“Shell sees a lot of opportunities here in Cebu, not just with the greater availability of our Best Ever Fuels but with its complete suite of offers. We see the potential of the Cebu market and we will continue to be its partner in enabling its growth for years to come,” he added.
Earlier this year, Shell opened its first-ever next-generation retail station in the Philippines in Mango Avenue, Cebu City. It is designed to create a comfortable avenue for people in neighboring communities to come together. At the same time, it has enhanced its stations with features and experiences that go beyond its primary service of providing the best fuel to motorists.
