Nearly 30 establishments will join to give out no less than 10 percent discount on goods that include not only school supplies, bags, uniform, shoes but also food products and local delicacies.
Stalls will be open from 8 am to 6 pm.
School supplies stores Pandayan Bookshop and Expressions will participate, as well as Purefoods that will sell discounted food products and Kservico on appliances and furniture.
DTI-Bataan head Nelin Cabahug said that this caravan is one of the breakthrough projects of DTI and they are targeting to earn P1 million for this diskwento caravan alone, helping local small and medium enterprises.
“We believe that any saved amount will be of big help to mothers in expanding their money and use it for other material things aside from school supplies and food,” said Cabahug.
Side activities will also be held during the three-day spectacle, according to senior trade and industry development officer Loi Malibiran. Graduates of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority will give free massage, while the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist will dispense seedlings.
The National Food Authority will sell NFA rice, while the Provincial Health Office and the Provincial Health Team Office will provide medical consultation.
“We know that parents are looking for cheap goods especially school supplies, bags and uniform,” said Malibiran.
The Balik Eskwela Diskwento Caravan is in coordination with the city government of Balanga led by Mayor Jose Enrique Garcia III.
