In Cagayan de Oro City, a sari-sari store went viral for a video that brought good vibes for its clever idea to promote social distancing. Amid the threat of COVID-19, it’s not a good idea to mingle with many people but it is also a harsh reality that people sometimes have to do that so they can provide food for their family.

So, this particular sari-sari store decided to remain open – but it decided to implement strict social distancing measures.

The gate to the sari-sari store is closed but the store remains open. But buyers need to use the bucket to put their money in to pay for the goods they are buying. Then, the shopkeeper pulls the string of the bucket to get the money and put the items inside the bucket. The customer pulls the string back to get their goods.
