Florings Bids Farewell

Florings, the long time minimart, and grocery along Rainbow St. and Lavander St. has now closed. This store within SSS Village has been around for decades.  I remember when I was little that Florings was one of the reliable stores to buy food and body products if we ran out of some or needed something quickly.  My mom used to buy canned goods, crackers and some knick-knacks at Florings in the '70's when they moved to Marikina.  It started out as a small sari-sari store and slowly grew occupying a bigger corner lot.
I guess with the advent of a myriad of convenience stores which have all been more accessible than before, that Florings naturally was going to lose out to them.
Nevertheless, Florings has served the thousands of residents within the vicinity for nearly four decades.  To Florings: thank you for your service.


  1. awwwwwww...

    Dyan kami madalas mag grocery! coz its only a few blocks away from our house..

    Hindi na kasi sila nag grow... dapat may konting development manlang sana...

    But i'm sure something bigger will emerge dyan sa florings..

    1. ako din dati akong nakatira dyan lang sa gold street kaya malapit lang sa house namin yan !!! miss ko na tuloy pati ang olopss!!!!

  2. talaga ? di kaya nagkasabay tayo minsan mamili dun ? hehehehe ! actually ako bihirang nakabili dun. pero di pwedeng di alam ang Florings ng mga taga SSS. Dun kaya palaging dumadaan ang jeep kasi. ;)

  3. i'll miss the melon candies that they give you kung di ka nila masusuklian ng 5 or 10 centavos.. :c

  4. something big is going to rise, katapat lang na bahay namin yun and as of now may construction na gnagawa, parang food stalls to eh
