HARD hit, like many businesses are, by the COVID-19 pandemic, Adidas Philippines is slowly, steadily getting back into action.
This developed following the reopening of the company’s three stores: Ayala Centrio Cagayan de Oro, Gaisano Mall of Digos, and SM Cagayan de Oro Uptown.
The shoe and apparel brand stressed that these reopening are “in line with local government guidance and in collaboration with our retail partners”.
Cagayan de Oro and Digos are among the areas that transitioned to general
community quarantine on May 1, as they are classified as moderate-risk locales, according to Mindanao Daily.
Majoirty of the physical retail arm of Adidas remains closed in the country. However, “our .com is now able to resume operations to fulfill and deliver your orders,” the statement continued.
The company also announced that their online store is now running with a “skeletal team”. However, this team is working within regulated hours and under proper health guidelines.
Earlier, in March 18, the brand had announced that deliveries and fulfillment of their online store would be indefinitely suspended until clearance for normal operations would be given.
This month, it was able to hold a successful online drop of the Yeezy Boost 380 Mist. Tomorrow, May 9, 11 a.m., the Yeezy 700 V3 will go on sale.
“We appreciate your patience with us during these times and we thank you for continuing to look out for each other, our families, and the teams around us,” finished Adidas' statement.
