DTI-Sorsogon to conduct ‘Diskwento Caravan’

By Benilda A. Recebido

SORSOGON CITY, May 19 (PIA) — In time for the opening of classes for school year 2012-2013, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will conduct a “Diskwento Caravan” on May 23 to 24 to more than ten barangays in Bacon District, this city.

Dubbed “Diskwento Caravan: Balik Eskwela Edition,” DTI-Sorsogon provincial director Leah Pagao said the activity aims to provide opportunity for parents and students to avail of products sold at discounted prices.

Pagao said they will offer not only school supplies but also food items which the buyers can keep and make as packed snack of the students while in school, this is why we encourage parents and students to take this opportunity in order to save a big amount of money.

“We have also clustered some barangays by combining smaller ones to nearby big barangay and made the latter as the caravan venue to give the buyers longer opportunity to wisely choose the items they are going to buy,” said PD Pagao.

She also said that they have already coordinated with the officials of the target barangays for the wide dissemination of information to their constituents, and have also coordinated with the barangay police to maintain peace and order while the activity is going on.

“We also call on the public to help us disseminate the information so that those interested residents can, early as this time, coordinate with their respective barangay officials to know smaller details on where they will go and how they can avail of the products to be offered during the conduct of the said caravan,” Pagao also said.

The “Diskwento Caravan” will make rounds on the following schedules: May 23 – Barangays San Roque, Maricrum, Balete, Cabarbuhan, Poblacion and Caricaran, while on May 24 the caravan will be in the barangays of Bonga, Salvacion, Sugod and Bon-ot.

Six big establishments here will participate in the caravan where each one will have representatives to guide the buyers while shopping.

DTI is optimistic that by bringing these establishments to the barangays, parents aside from getting discounts will also be encouraged to send their children to school. (MAL/BAR-PIA5 Sorsogon)
