New DOST oneSTore hub to open in Pangasinan

A ONESTORE Hub, a one-stop-shop of Department of Science and Technology (DOST)-assisted products from all over Ilocos region, will open in San Carlos City, Pangasinan, on August 11.

“Food and non-food products can be bought from the oneSTore hub, which will be managed by the Filipino Investors Society Producers of the Philippines Cooperative (FISPC) Pangasinan chapter,” said Alexa Apostol, Science Research Specialist of the DOST Provincial Office in Pangasinan.

She added that the FISPC will be in-charge of collecting and marketing the different products of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in the region.

“Aside from the products, the oneSTore here will also offer machineries and food processing equipment since the FISPC partnered with the Metalworking Industries Association of the Philippines,” Apostol said.

She noted that this is the second oneSTore hub to open in the region, with the first one launched in San Fernando City, La Union.

“The oneSTore hub situated in Urdaneta City, Pangasinan, which opened last year but eventually closed due to inaccessibility of the location, was moved here in San Carlos City, at the Roxas Boulevard in the city proper,” Apostol said.

“We invite everyone to come and visit the oneSTore hub,” she added. (PNA)
