As we face the current crisis, micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) are severely disrupted. Many Filipinos have lost their jobs as businesses and establishments were forced to cease operations. Truly, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on a lot of people.
To help out in this situation, Lazada—one of the leading e-commerce platforms in the country—has launched a 6.6 Bounce Back Sale that will run from June 4 to 6, 2020. Their main goal? Extend support to Filipinos who’ve been heavily affected by the pandemic. (READ: Rizal Baker Rises From Hardships, Now Gives Back To Frontliners)
Lazada Philippines Chief Executive Officer, Ray Alimurung, says the sale is an initiative to help businesses recover amid the quarantine period. “We continue to support our partners and provide solutions to drive business continuity through our technology and resources as we weather this quarantine period together,” says Alimurung.

During the sale, shoppers are treated with free shipping vouchers at no minimum spend. All items will be made available, from daily essentials to the newest gadget—possibly even the most unique gift you can think of for Father’s Day! (READ: 4 Unique Gift Ideas To Surprise Dad With On Father’s Day)
