Could be dogs, cats, birds, snakes, mice, talking parrots, rabbits, exotic animals like iguanas, bearded dragons, etc. making it the most diverse pet gathering in Cebu and the country.

Sari-sari store

A sari-sari store is a convenience store found in the Philippines. The word sari-sari is Tagalog meaning "variety". Such stores form an important economic and social location in a Filipino community. It is present in almost all neighborhoods, sometimes even in every street. Most sari-sari stores are privately owned shops and are operated inside the shopkeeper's house.

Empowering Sari-Sari Stores

The Sari-Sari Stores are vital assets in the local economy. We perceive these small business people as "heroes" of the Micro-economy at the grassroots of our society

Look also HERE - Magna Kultura Foundation has been organizing outreach seminar programs designed to educate retail store owners and store-keepers with basic business skills. Most of the vendors are “un-schooled” in business enterprise management.
