Eighties and nineties kids, your hearts will break a little.

Time to say goodbye to the last branch of the brick-and-mortar retailer Gift Gate in the country.

The well-loved gift shop used to be the go-to place for a vast selection of Sanrio character products such as stationery, stickers, bags, pencil boxes, and school supplies.

The good news? There’s a big closing out sale happening until the end of the month.

According to ABS-CBN, the shelves are barely stocked, but it might still be worth a visit if you want to take a trip down memory lane.

The branch in Greenhills was the first one established in the Philippines in 1976. It will also the last one to go. The store’s last day will be on May 31.

ABS-CBN’s Julius Babao and his wife Tintin Bersola visited the store recently. Checked out Babao’s Instagram post below.
