Bench in Daly City!


The opening of the Bench store in Daly City coincided with the ABS-CBN Kapamilya Summer Caravan and the GMA-7 Pinoy TV launch in California. Ben took the opportunity to invite other celebrity-friends of Bench to join Richard Gomez, Lucy Torres-Gomez, Kris Aquino, and Ogie Alcasid in welcoming the Pinoys and non-Pinoys who flocked to the store to see what the commotion was about. Those who accepted Ben’s invitation included SOP frontliners Regine Vela

Bench, arguably the Philippines’ biggest clothing and accessory retailer, opened their first store in the United States back in 2005. On July 22, it inaugurated its first U.S. store, strategically located at the Serramonte Center
in Daly City, California, not far from San Francisco. No less than the top Bench endorsers—Richard and Lucy Gomez, Kris Aquino, and Ogie Alcasid—were in attendance.

Established in 1987, Bench now has more than 120 outlets in the Philippines and in neighboring Asia-Pacific countries, including mainland China and Guam. It also has franchises in the Middle East. Bench head Ben Chan sure knows how to put the phrase “going global” into action!
