IGDS has a Centenarian – Great Retail Leader
We are very proud to celebrate the 100th birthday of our IGDS member Ambassadord Tantoco, a visionary leader who started a small retail business with his wife 69 years ago and developed it into a diversified group now managed successfully by his family’s 2nd and 3rd generations.
The COVID-19 epidemic is now affecting the entire world and its population. The impact of the outbreak to the department store industry and its stakeholders is significant and stressful.
