Netizens puzzled by a sari-sari store built high off the ground

  • A netizen posted some photos of a store located above the ground which looked seemingly inaccessible
  • A customer needs to climb a coco lumber pathway before they can get to the store
  • Sari-sari stores are so popular you can see them anywhere all over the country

Facebook user Jasmin Usman shared photos of a sari-sari store which was located above the ground and looked seemingly inaccessible. She captioned the photo: “So paano ako bibili?”

This little store in Kabuntalan, Maguindanao requires the customers to climb an improvised pathway made of “coco lumber” for them to get to the store.

The photos received mixed reactions as the netizens were thinking of the reason the store was in such a high place which would not be easy for a customer to get to.

One netizen said that the store does not apply “the customer is always right” policy by making it inaccessible.

“Saklap, hindi talaga makatarungan ang salitang customer is always right diyan kung aakyat pa at mag–eeffort.”

Another one had thought that the main reason was to deter thieves.

“Ganyan daw para walang magnakaw hahaha…”

A netizen also said that maybe the place was a flood-prone area so they needed to put the store in a higher place.

In the Philippines, the sari-sari store is so popular where you can see it anywhere all over the country.
