HMR Philippines. Your Ultimate Surplus Shop Destination


If you are like me who finds thrill at stumbling upon something amazing and something worth it. Then you're in for a treat. 6 months back or so, I found myself going around surplus shops all over the metro searching for my start up Lego collection. Then I came across HMR Araneta. This was the first time I found out about this place and I was ecstatic! Usually, surplus shops in the metro are small, cramped and lacks the proper ventilation. HMR Philippines - Araneta was opposite everything one would describe a surplus shop.

It was my first time visiting their first branch which is located near Robinsons Pioneer in Mandaluyong. Which is the original store that have been opened since 1992.  Having visited two HMR stores already, I thought I was ready and thought that I've seen all of it, but I was wrong. This branch was huge! The 5,000 sqm warehouse was like a department store, furniture shop and gadget shop in one. Let me show you around.

At the ground floor you can immediately see some furniture displays welcoming you

You will not miss this hall with glass display case where they sell their premium items like cameras, cellphones, tablets and other gadgets. There are also some toys displayed there.

I tried to control my self when I saw the LEGO box. I just had to. They also have an area there that sells electronics. TVs, DVD player, Blu-ray Players and some Karaoke players! which means they also have computers with Windows 7 operating system and Office software at a more affordable price. HMR has this partnership with Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher which means they are authorized to sell refurbished computer units with pre-installed legitimate software.

Some really cool toys are for sale too! They have some really good choice of toys here. For girls and boys.

Known to be "The Best Surplus Depot" which I would have to agree, HMR Philippines is linked to a large supply network of HMR Group of Companies. Deliveries come every week and there's always something new here. New items added on a regular basis being sold at bargain prices!

They also have packed food and snacks. HMR is also partnered up with Costco who supplies them every 2-3 weeks I think.

They have products like computers and other gadget peripherals, home and office furniture, audio video equipment, telecommunications equipment, medical and industrial equipment, toys and novelty items, hardware tools and many many more! Oh they even sell Toyota car parts in this branch! (amaaaazing!)

Check out this cart of some home improvement items and repair parts.

We headed to the second floor where there were shoes, apparel, office equipment and some really good luggage selections.

Here's Alex checking out some comforters, Ruth testing the couch and the gang checking out at the counter with their buys.

Now if ever you go hungry with all the hunting and shopping, every HMR branch has their own restaurant / snack area called the Tasty Tucker. Big space that can accommodate a big number of people. 

The serving of the burger is big enough to share. Their pizza is also huge and can feed around 4-6 people.

Oh and they have some really good desserts and cakes there too!

Going around the place kept me on my toes as I am in search of an item that is a good buy and seeing those 50% off signs wasn't helping me with my decision. I was moving in a fast pace and I was panicking. :) Personally, I think that the whole idea of buying stuff in a thrift shop is now being cheap, but being practical. Aside from that, it gives me the thrill and the satisfaction of being able stumble upon something amazing. Like uncovering a treasure.

Will post more about HMR and my finds in their branch at Araneta Center. :)
