Pasay deploys rolling stores to barangays
Pasay City deployed “rolling stores” on Tuesday to provide residents alternative outlets from where they could purchase food products and other essential items at affordable prices.
This project, in partnership with the Department of Agriculture, aims to further help families affected by the enhanced community quarantine imposed due to COVID-19.
Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano visited one of the initial beneficiary-barangays, Brgy. 13 along F.B. Harrision Street, where she was joined by DA Assistant Secretary Kristine Evangelista.
“Ang mga rolling stores na ito ay lilibot sa lahat ng 201 barangays ng Pasay city upang magbenta sa ating mga residente ng mga sariwa at masustansyang pagkain at iba pang essential items sa presyong mas mababa kaysa sa mabibili sa mga supermarkets at grocery stores. Ito rin ay isang paraan upang ang ating mga kababayan ay hindi na pupunta pa sa malayong palengke o tindahan, at mas maipatutupad pa natin ang ‘stay at home’ policy dahil mababawasan din ang kanilang paglabas ng bahay at pagbyahe,” Mayor Calixto said.
Today’s initial routes of the rolling stores were Barangay 141 in Zone 15 (Cabrera Street near San Roque Parish), Barangay 154 in Zone 16 (M. Francisco cor. Edang Streets) and Barangay 13 in Zone 4 (along F.B. Harrison Street in front of Meralco).
The project will utilize jeepneys that can access small barangay roads.The rolling stores will be available from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The Pasay LGU will announce daily schedules of the rolling stores for the different barangays in the city.
