“How utterly exciting!” I gushed to JV, my personal relationship manager, as i entered the newest iconic store of Globe located in BGC. This is the second iconic store that Globe telecoms put up, the first one being in Greenbelt. I was excited to see the possibilities that Globe is offering their clients – the outdoor event venue is impressive enough, so I had rather huge expectations on this one.
As soon as you walk in, you will notice the sizeable “green room” with a professional AV studio set up (cameras, lights and headsets) I was told that this is exactly what I thought it was. “We would like to show our clients that we are ready to help them get their message out there in the digital world. This is what Globe is aiming to do” JV says as he takes me around. You can rent the studio out for 80k PHP for 10 hours. Good enough time to shoot a whole season if your digital talk show, maybe? You can bring in your own backdrop/ background as well. Just make sure they are .mov or of a higher resolution file.
The latest phones, accessories and gadgets are on display, including a Samsung Gear VR chair! One can give it a whirl if one wants. The real money item that one MUST try is the Star Wars game! Must! Did i say must? Yes, must.
The store is divided into two areas and to get to the second area, which is the multimedia area, you have to cross a bridge where the latest movie partners and their trailers, cutouts and posters are displayed. The second area also has the Globe Platinum lounge for Globe Platinum clients.
The lounge is so luxurious amd comfortable! This is why I love being a Platinum client! With all the traveling that I do, I never have to worry about manually activating my roaming and data plans. I get my own personal relationship manager that I can call directly to ask for assistance regarding my account, for restaurant reservations, lounge access (although I think this is going to be updated soon) and other Globe promos!
Congratulations, Globe! Here’s to more stores and improvements!
