Alongside Suzuki’s commitment to Create a Wow this year, the brand is establishing more shops to bring its high-quality products nearer the Filipinos. And fulfilling that promise, Suzuki is opening its 31st 3S shop in the country in the progressive province of Iloilo. The shop is considered as the biggest in the region and the second largest in the Philippines. It is founded in partnership with one of Suzuki’s prime dealers in Visayas – Solid Motorcycle Distribution Inc (SMDI).
SMDI and Suzuki’s partnership began in 1986 when the former ventured into motorcycle selling business with a unit of a Suzuki bike. As the industry grows, SMDI expands and with only a single Suzuki 3S shop in 1996, they now currently have a total of 26 dealerships – with 7 3S shops including the newly opened Jaro Iloilo branch and 19 Suzuki Moto Centers.
The 3S in 3S Shop means Sales, Spare Parts and Service and Suzuki 3S Shops present a one-stop-shop experience to all customers offering a complete service that provides the customers the true meaning of Suzuki’s Way of Life! Offering an exclusive line-up of Suzuki motorcycles, helpful sales personnel, modernized motorcycle repair facilities, genuine spare parts, outstanding after sales support and professional mechanics, Suzuki 3S Shop also boasts of the innovative display module inspired from the brand’s latest Fuel-injection (Fi) technology.
Team Suzuki and SMDI prepared various promos and activities for the shop’s first visitors. Discounts on cash purchases with low monthly amortization and interest rates await the store’s initial buyers. Existing owners of Suzuki motorcycles are treated with a FREE Service Activity which covers free change oil, oil filter and tune-up. They also have a chance to try the latest Suzuki motorcycles such as the Fuel-injected (Fi) Raider J 115 Fi and Shooter 115 Fi.
Business-minded ones on the other hand can test ride the solo and tricycle-converted models of the GD110 with a product orientation that will give them more details about the motorcycle. As if these are not enough, stunt shows, fun contests such as the FI Dance Revolution and booth games are also being held wherein spectators can win exciting prizes!
