Suzuki Philippines did a full-on blitz for their new Super Carry in the last week of May, the traditional fiesta month. First, they put the mini-transport center-stage at the Pahiyas festival in Lucban, Quezon last May 23. Then, in the days immediately following Pahiyas, Suzuki pitched the Super Carry as the ideal micro-truck for micro-retailers at the 14th Tindahan ni Aling Puring Sari-Sari Store Convention—this year’s iteration of what has become the largest annual gathering of neighborhood store operators in the country.
