Rustan’s Supermarkets’ President Bienvenido Tantoco III is confident that the new credit card will receive a warm welcome from Rustan’s devoted shoppers. “Once a shopper has experienced Rustan’s, they usually come back for more, whether they first tried the department store or the specialty boutiques or the supermarket. And we are happy to say that these become long-term relationships that we nurture with good products and excellent service. A Citi-Rustan’s cardholder can expect no less.”
According to Mark Jones, Citi Country Business Manager: “We are very proud to have the country’s foremost luxury retailer as our partner in our latest product. For more than 50 years, Rustan’s has been bringing the world’s most premier and sought after brands to the Filipino shopper, even as they help launch the careers of many local designers. They are the natural partner for Citi as we launch a credit card for the luxury shopper.”
