The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will hold the Balik Eskwela Diskwento Bonanza, a yearly discount caravan, from May 30 to 31 at the Plaza Pershing.

The event aims to provide discounted school supplies to parents in time for this year’s school opening.

Ceferino Rubio, DTI Provincial Director, said that 15 to 25 establishments will be participating in the caravan to provide discounts from 10 to 50%.

Items available during the caravan include school supplies, bags, uniforms and shoes.

Meanwhile, Rubio said that there has been no movement on the prices of school supplies for papers, pencils and notebooks.

He assured parents that they will continue to monitor the prices of basic and prime commodities to ensure that these are sold at the suggested retail price.  (RGAAGo)
