A brand new store concept is set to open its doors in Metro Manila this August. TITAN, the first ever basketball-dedicated retail store in the market, was designed specifically with the Filipino basketball player in mind. The store hopes to give consumers a unique and lasting experience every time they visit.
Located in the up and coming Forbeswood Retail area at Burgos Circle (corner of Rizal Drive) in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig – TITAN will house the first and only basketball specialty store in the Philippines as well as a traditional 4-chair men’s barbershop. The store is not what you would typically expect of a sporting goods shop, with the latest performance basketball products from the best brands in the world set against a store environment that exudes an old world simplicity far better suited for a time before ours.
“We wanted to create a space that would be perfect for anyone who loves basketball”, says Jeffrey Cariaso, co-founder and one of TITAN’s owners. “We wanted a store that would give basketball consumers the power of choice with the products that he wants. And with the barbershop, it was about having a space where if you’re into basketball and you love the game and the culture that comes with it, you’ll feel right at home.”
TITAN is the first retail venture of TITANOMACHY, INC., a basketball collective formed by Cariaso and his partners, who all share a common passion and love for the game of basketball. Jeffrey Cariaso is a 15-year professional basketball player in the Philippines, a 10-time All-Star and 8-time champion in the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association).
The store will carry the latest and most innovative performance basketball footwear, apparel and accessories from Nike, adidas, Brand Jordan, And1, Converse, Reebok, K1X and New Era. TITAN’s barbershop services will primarily focus on haircuts and shaves.
TITAN will open on August 4, 2010, with 3 exclusive shoe releases from Nike slated on that day. The Nike Zoom Kobe V “Big Stage” Edition (Home and Away) and the Air Max LeBron VII NFS “MVP” shoe will be available in limited quantities on Opening Day.
