Palawan Pawnshop – Palawan Express Pera Padala inaugurated its newest Head Office Building at the heart of Puerto Princesa City on August 17, 2019 in celebration of its 34th year founding anniversary.
The event was attended by over 500 guests, included are business partners who flew from overseas and from National Capital Region, family friends, relatives and top-management officers of Palawan Pawnshop. The Board of Directors led by President Bobby L. Castro entertained guests from arrival to the assisted building tour and shared good times over cocktails at the new building’s rooftop.
In the after-dinner program, the Castro siblings, who now handles significant positions in Palawan Pawnshop Group of Companies, shared glimpse of the past highlighting why the family and the whole company take pride in the newly constructed Head Office, comparing it to the humble little office atop a branch which serves as their home and the pawnshop’s office for a time back in the ‘90s. The program was both touching and light as values of the company were reflected while the Castro siblings paid homage to their parents who established and first operated the first Palawan Pawnshop branch in 1985.
