In these times, we’re experimenting with both old and new things. Or rather, we’re integrating new technology into some old school methods that prove useful. This is my review of my experience with #143SM.
#143SM is the Call-to-Deliver Service of The SM Store. Created with our changing shopping habits in this new normal, it’s something you need to consider before rushing out.
The first step is to dial #143SM (#14376). The line is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. You will be asked for your name, address and the nearest SM branch. You will also be asked about the items you wish to buy.
Afterwards, a personal shopper will get in touch with you. From there, you may communicate via Viber or Facebook Messenger.
When I shopped recently, I stocked up on one of my favorite perfumes from Tom Ford, Neroli Portofino.
Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino is all about the cool breeze, sparkling water and the lushness of the Italian riviera. I believe this is one of the brand’s more popular scents since the conception of its beauty and fragrance Line. I’m very picky with fragrances, so I can vouch for how this is worth it.
For the other items I bought, what I did was send the personal shopper some photos from the internet, so she could find items similar to what I was looking for. She was very friendly and diligent. She sent me photos of the items with the corresponding prices.
On the home front, I bought wooden tray organizers. I bought a few last year when I was decluttering and I continue to find them useful, so I bought a few more. SM Home has products that help us improve our decor and living space.
I requested for photo frames for my desk. My personal shopper sent over photos of what they had in store and I got exactly what I wanted.
I also got a few swimming essentials for me and my children. I got a new hat and a set of floaters with cute donut designs.
Payment is easy since they offer the most convenient options. Just tell your personal shopper your preference and they will set it up. The final bill will include your delivery fee, a flat rate of P100.
You will also be assured that any information you will give is safe. SM personal shoppers will not ask you to divulge sensitive information with regards to your payment.
The Call-To-Deliver service also honors your SM Advantage Card and Prestige Card along with other SM memberships, so you can collect or use the points per transaction.
There is no minimum purchase required. Whatever you need, it’s just a phone call away.
If you order early enough, and given the efficiency of SM, you can even get your items on the same day.
