Santiago L. Ocampo, together with his eldest son Ricardo and daughter-in-law Evansuida Gueco, established what would be the second of Ocampo’s chain stores in Angeles Pampanga.  

 

This practice of putting a son in business and shouldering the original investment until it is  gradually paid off, though unique, is an old policy of Santiago.
