From jerseys to the ill-est basketball kicks, Pinoy basketball fans, ballers themselves and baller-wannabes now have a truly dedicated basketball store to meet their needs; Titan is its name, and basketball is its game.[firstpara] The store opens its doors today, August 4, 2010, to an unsurprisingly massive basketball-loving public.
And it’s not just a basketball store, because located at the store’s ground floor is Titan’s very own 4-chair men’s barbershop.
It’s not everyday you see a store that fuses basketball with barbering, and to that, co-owner, and PBA player Jeffrey Cariaso has this to say:
“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, located at the Forbeswood Retail area at Burgos Circle in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, promises to offer a basketball experience that satisfies the Filipino basketball fan.
The store will be carrying the newest accessories and shoes from brands including Nike, Adidas, Brand Jordan, And1, Converse, Reebok, K1X and New Era.
Titan’s barbershop services will be focusing on classic haircuts and shaves, and thankfully none of those fancy, effeminate Korean hairstyles so popular now.
The store will be home to a couple of exclusive releases, the first few of which will be the Nike Kobe V Big Stage (Home and Away) and the Lebron VII MVP Edition. The pairs will be extremely limited, so the rights to buy one of these babies will come down to a raffle.
Come by the store today, August 4, and submit your ballots from 12NN to 6 PM. The lottery starts at 7 PM. Win the lottery, and you’re eligible to purchasing the said shoes. Also, you must wear or bring any Kobe or Lebron sneaker to qualify for the raffle.
So, if you want a basketball store that’s also a barbershop, now you know that Titan’s the only one place that’s like that.
