The LCC Group of Companies started in 1945 when its founders – Mr. Tan Chu Lim and his wife Mrs. Tan Sy Sa – opened a small store called “Liberty Bazaar” in Tabaco City. The store offered basic goods and services to shoppers in Tabaco and neighboring communities. 

Driven to provide a wider range of merchandise and services to its customers, the owners expanded Liberty Bazaar to include a Department Store and Supermarket under the new name Liberty Commercial Center, Inc.

In 1981 the first LCC Mall was opened in  Bgy Dinagaan , Legaspi City, along Panaranda and Rizal Streets and Quezon Avenue, (site of the Battle of the Legaspi City Monument). LCC Legaspi mall is the first of its kind in the Bicol Region  offering a one-stop  family destination for shopping, food tripping, leisure and more.

In later years, LCC became the pioneering operator of commercial establishments and retail chains in Albay Province and the whole Bicol Region with more than 80 branches in Naga City, Iriga City, Ligao City, Sorsogon City, Masbate City, Daet, Labo, Pili, Nabua, Camalig, Daraga, Pio Duran, Bulan  And Irosin.
