With the opening of our 200th store, Upson aims to continue to provide direct access to an updated suite of IT products to every region in the Philippines,” shares Upson President & CEO Arlene T. Sy.
Earlier this month, Upson also opened 3 other retail stores – a Micro Valley branch in SM Sucat as well as two other concept stores, namely Acer and Brother, in Limketkai Mall, Cagayan de Oro City.
“It has been 18 years since we opened our first Octagon Computer Superstore” Sy adds.

Upson also has concept stores to carry exclusive brands such as Acer, HP, Brother, and Silvertec.
Upson’s long-standing and close partnerships with various suppliers of global brands have garnered industry insights that helped Upson provide IT products that are relevant and responsive to market needs and lifestyle changes.
Further, Upson prides itself in being awarded Certifications of Authenticity and Untampered Products from some of the leading suppliers of computer and IT brands. These wide variety of IT products are available at uniform prices in all Upson’s retail branches which can be found in 16 out of the 17 regions in the country.
