Entry – Doing Business at the Malls
1) Set-up a local office (branch or any other form; visit www.sec.gov.ph) for more info) that will do the importation from Korea and transact business with local malls or supermarkets, convenience stores and other potential re-sellers in the Philippines (PH). Supermarkets and other shops in PH do not usually do the importation instead they get supply from local company that does the importation. This is where your local office comes in.
2) Tap a local company in PH to do the distribution to other shops.
Doing Business at the Mall
Doing business in the mall could be in different forms and arrangements. It could be a stand alone shop or boutique, a kiosk, space in a department store or inside a supermarket. Arrangements and rental fees varies from mall to mall and from the location inside the mall. Lower or Ground Floor level shops are more expensive in leasing fee compared to other locations inside the mall.
We suggest you (or ask your Korean friends in the Philippines) to get a copy of the ENTREPRENEUR October 2004 issue entitled INS and OUTS of DOING BUSINESS in the MALLS. It is available in FILBARS magazine kiosks located in major malls in Metro Manila. Please call them at telephone (+632) 455-3241 or 455-5243 local 18.

You have to know the schedule of when can you present your products together with the list of the requirements. Usual requirements may include the following, will vary depending on the mall as each mall has different set of requirements and guidelines for accepting tenants.
