Headquarters or HQ is a concept store that promises authentic finds for authentic fans. HQ’s goal is to curate officially licensed merchandise from different parts of the world and make them more accessible to Filipino fans. It aims to be the go-to store for rare and unique finds that appeal to a wide range of interests, be it comic books, movies, anime, video games, music, or other areas of pop culture.

“One hurdle that pop culture fans typically face is the difficulty of acquiring limited-edition items, especially since most of these are sold overseas. With Headquarters (HQ), we want to bridge the gap between enthusiasts and merchandise that are relevant to their interests, by making these items more accessible to them,” said Mr. Melvin Lloyd Lim, President of Headquarters (HQ).
Headquarters recently opened its first store at Uptown Mall in Taguig City. The store offers limited-edition toys, apparel, gadgets, novelty items, and a number of media titles for TV, film, music, and video game aficionados, among others.
