Serving the Finest

RUSTAN'S is the Philippines' leading upscale and luxury retail destination, known for its unparalleled range of prestigious brands and quality merchandise.

Founded in 1952 in the elegant living room of husband and wife Bienvenido Tantoco Sr. and Gliceria Rustia-Tantoco in San Marcelino, Rustan's was among the earliest to introduce renowned international brands to discerning Filipino shoppers and visitors.

Rustan's has made a name for its dedication to class, taste, and style, and reflects the vibrance, growth, and cosmopolitan nature of the Philippines. With stores located in key urban centers, Rustan's has a reputation for refined service, exciting events, and quality amenities. Rustan's also gave the Philippines many firsts: the first-ever gift certificate, the first-ever wedding registry, and the first-ever loyalty program Frequent Shoppers Plus (FSP).

As it celebrates nearly seven decades of extraordinary style, Rustan’s continues to reinvent itself and innovate, committing today as it always has: “serving only the finest.”
