A Demolished Bay Tree

What used to be popularly known as Bay Tree at the corner of Katipunan Road and Gen. Ordonez (formerly Molave St). is no more.    Some who are not  familiar with the place (usually those asking for directions) used to mistakenly call it "Bay 3".  But for those who are familiar with this supermarket, it has been at this corner since the 1980's.   It has been there long before the Molave Wet & Dry Market was built just across it.  Bay Tree also used to be home as well to several small stores adjacent to it and also served as a tricycle terminal along the Katipunan Ave side.

Most of the time, Bay Tree served as shelter from the rains as people would stay here until rains subside.   It also served as waiting shed for commuters waiting for the SSS Village jeeps and a meeting area for Marikenos living nearby.  The building has been totally demolished and is currently just a vacant lot.

Bay Tree and Florings are 2 supermarkets surely to be remembered by Marikenos from SSS Village and Marikina Heights.


  1. Namiss ko tuloy bigla ang Bay Tree. :(


  2. Mismanaged daw. Tapos ang mahal pa ng prices compared to other stores.

    Pinaka sayang yung Florings. ang mura ng bilihin dun. kaya lang may mga ibang pumasok na mas malaki at murang tindahan like parco and yung isa pa sa may palengke.

  3. @Migs really ? well convenient pa rin lalo na kung tagulan at may mga baha. Sayang lang di rin inupgrade yung store. Wala nang close na supermarket ngayon sa SSS Village.

  4. Puregold Jr is being build on this site.

  5. Anonymous: That's what we heard from the tricycle drivers there. Good thing another grocery is being constructed there.

  6. kelan po mag open puregold jr dyan sa gen ordonez
