The store also sells mugs, tumblers, lanyards, pockets and lomography cameras with classical look.

The Filipino firm has nine stores all over the country. Its Davao branch, which opened last April 24 at SM City Davao, is the first in Mindanao.

Team Manila will also open more stores in Trilogy Alabang Town Center and its second store in Mindanao at Bloomindale's Zamboanga within this year.

Other Team Manila branches are located in Rockwell, SM Mall of Asia, Trinoma, Marquee Mall Pampanga, Subic Harbor Point, Market! Market!, SM San Lazaro and SM Manila.

Although not yet known in Davao, Team Manila has started to make a name to its market in the city as sales are increasing each month since its opening over four months ago, according to Podunas.
