Yesterday, I was able to experience the magical world called LINE PH. To be honest I am still experiencing sepanx from it. It was my dream to go to a LINE physical store, to see the display filled with the famous LINE characters like Brown, Cony and Sally that I use to see only on TV because of my daughter. I’m sorry, but being an ARMY the highlight for me was to see my BT21 babies.
This is not just a pop-up store. It’s a LINE store that is meant to last for a long time. Placed beside the escalator and just a few steps on the left from Robinson’s Manila Main Mall Entrance, in front of Starbucks (Level 1 Midtown Wing). If you’re using Grab, just choose Robinson’s Manila Main entrance and you will have no hassle to finding it.

The Launching of LINE store here in the Philippines was hosted by VJ Sunny of MYX Philippines. Her bubbliness and beautiful smiles completed the ribbon cutting or pulling of LINE Philippines that marked 25th of October year 2019 as the official opening of the First LINE Store in the Philippines. The ribbon cutting was lead by Miss Winnie Go – President of WCG Beon Yeong Company Inc., Mr. Kevin Na – President GAIA Southeast Asia and Mr. Bryan Koo – Retail Director of LINE FRIENDS. As the ribbon was pulled and Sally was revealed, every one was excited to finally be able to roam around the magical haven called LINE.

A Brown Mascot and A Tata Mascot also joined the festivities making a lot of people happy even by just looking at them or having their picture with them.
500 lucky customers who waited in line for LINE PH to open, were given BT21 balloons. They were also given a chance to win LINE products when they win games that were prepared for them.
Here are some of the winners!
The moment I saw the wonderful BT21 balloons, it was hard to contain myself but I did. The products that I only see online are now within my reach. I literally look at every corner to see what they have to offer. Some within my budget, while some have to wait until Christmas.
We have also inquired about mode of payments. As per Miss Mela Fortes, LINE Brand Marketing Person, You have an option for Cash or Card, Gcash (not yet installed that day but soon), and PayMaya (to follow). More options of payment more chances for merch as ARMYs say.
Here are the racks of LINE Philippines. Some I have the prices while the others does not have any price tag yet. But don’t worry, because the kind Line Helpers are there to assist you with everything that you need.
