Donya Arcely Plus: San Fernando’s One-Stop-Shop Convenience and Pasalubong Center

BRING home favorite Pinoy delicacies like kapit, kutsinta, sapin-sapin, suman and more from San Fernando’s one-stop-shop: Donya Arcely Plus!

Aside from local kakanin, Donya Arcely Plus also features a variety of locally-made pasalubong products from Nathaniel’s, Granda’s, and their own brand.

Donya Arcely Plus started in 2018 with a small stall in front of Mother Teresa of Calcutta Medical Center.

“We started off as a small pasalubong center. In 2021, we moved to a bigger space, so I thought of adding something more to the store,” shared Ace Nava, owner of Donya Arcely Plus.

From a humble pasalubong center, Donya Arcely added convenience store items to serve people working or visiting at its neighboring hospital, and those who are visiting offices at the regional government center in Barangay Maimpis.

Donya Arcely is Nava’s mother.

“She’s not really a donya. But, as a way to honor the sacrifices of my mother when we were younger, I wanted to give her the title ‘donya,'” Nava shared.

Nava recalled that during his childhood, her mother sold local delicacies and other goods, as well.

Nava also shared some of the products they personally produce including Mani ni Ace, Donya Arcely Banana Chips, and Donya Arcely Chicharon, among others.

Delicacies or kakanin sold at Donya Arcely Plus are prepared from their family’s recipe.

“We guarantee our customers good food, good service, good price, and food safety,” Nava shared.

Donya Arcely Plus is located in front of Mother Teresa of Calcutta Medical Center in Barangay Maimpis, City of San Fernando. The store is open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
