Junior

Puregold Jr.Back in 2010, I posted a photo of our little neighborhood grocery, named Eunilaine. It closed in December, ostensibly for renovations, and announced that it would reopen on January 15. That date came and went, but the grocery didn't open. It finally did last month, but under a completely different name. Puregold is one of the Philippines' largest grocery chains, with 156 stores under three names. It bought all 15 Eunilaine and Grocer-E stores, closing the deal on January 15.

So is that a good thing?

Hi Hilda, I love the colours.

There's so many pros and cons to losing a smaller grocery chain and being taken over or dominated by the large ones. I hope you only get to see the positives!

End of an era. Eunilaine is what I grew up with
