What is this Italian-themed store in the Philippines?
It was an Italian-inspired department store that appeared in Manila on Wednesday, but it has been shrouded in mystery for more than two years.
It was called Khols, which is also known as Kholas department store.
Khols store owner and manager Sergio Tse said the owner of the store was very fond of Italian and his children loved to go shopping there.
The owners name is Sergio Tser, Tse added.
Tse told ABC News he wanted to create a more authentic experience for his customers.
The store was built on a two-story building in the trendy area of the city.
He said the store is located in the area where people normally go to buy goods.
He said it is open 24 hours a day and offers a wide selection of products, from clothes and accessories to home decor and even a pet store.
Tser said his family, especially his daughter, had grown up there and would not be able to go back.
He added that the family has lived in the neighborhood for about 20 years and there were no signs of trouble.
Tsem said that there are a lot of people in the town who love the store, and there are no complaints.
He also added that there is no sign of violence or looting.
Tsem said he is hoping to open a similar shop in Manila.
He also said the Philippine government should come up with a way to fund the project.
