Smarter shopping at Shopwise!

Just before school opened, my daughter and I visited Shopwise Commonwealth. It was time for my weekly supermarket shopping trip. I figured it was a good time as any to check out what Shopwise had to offer. After all, I had been hearing a lot of stuff about their exclusive deals and promos. What mom wouldn’t want to get the best value for her money, right?

Shopwise CommonwealthIt was the middle of the week and it took me only 20 minutes of driving to get there. I love how there was ample basement parking too! It was such a hot day so I really wanted shaded parking. I was quite impressed by the size of the shopping area. It’s much bigger compared to a regular supermarket.

Shopwise CommonwealthI let the Shopwise Magazine be my guide since it collates all the special offers — Buy 1 Get 1, Price Drop, Value Deals, etc. They change promos every 2 weeks so it’s always a refreshingly different shopping experience every time. You can browse through the latest issue of the Shopwise Magazine for the freshest deals at

Shopwise CommonwealthSince we were getting ready for school opening, we promptly went to check out the school supplies sections.

Shopwise CommonwealthI honestly had no idea that Shopwise carries practically everything — pens, pencils, glue, markers, rulers, plastic cover, etc.

Shopwise CommonwealthEverything is neatly organized so it was pretty easy to navigate even if it was our first time there. You can find all kinds of meats here — beef, chicken, pork… even lamb!

Shopwise CommonwealthWe also got some household items like toothbrushes, paper towels, detergent, etc. They have a complete lineup of both local and imported brands.

Shopwise CommonwealthSurebuy is Shopwise’s in-house brand. Surebuy products are more affordable compared to regular brands. Almost everything has a Surebuy counterpart — coffee, water, kitchen towels, etc. The good thing about Surebuy is they don’t sacrifice quality so you get the best value for money.

Shopwise CommonwealthShopwise also has an exclusive imported brand — Essential Everyday. These are superior quality products that don’t cost an arm and a leg. I felt like I was shopping abroad when I browsed through the Essential Everyday aisle.

Shopwise CommonwealthGiant is Shopwise’s very own home brand. When we visited, there was a Buy 1 Take 1 promo for the Giant Tornado Mop. Shopwise really a one-stop shop. You can get everything you need for your home (and even school) from here.

Overall, I had a lovely time shopping at Shopwise. It was pretty chill on a weekday so we were relaxed. Checking out with my purchases was fast and efficient too. I especially loved the great deals on meat and produce. I also saved on some home essentials by getting Surebuy items.

    Hi, Giant is not a Shopwise home brand. It’s a Malaysian hypermarket chain that has branches in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia and Vietnam. 🙂

    Quite well known here in Singapore. I find they carry more produce that other supermarkets here.

      Hi Tin! Giant Hypermarket is Shopwise’s sister company, Both are owned and managed by Dairy Farm International which is why here in PH, Shopwise is the one that carries Giant products. 🙂
