Your Ultimate Guide to Online Grocery Shopping during the Quarantine

SHARE :

With Luzon in a month-long quarantine, many people in Metro Manila rush to the supermarkets to store up on food and other essentials. Be a smart shopper. List down items that you need before going out so that you can limit your time outside. Forget about panic buying. There might be people out there who need that item you are hoarding more than you do. At this time of crisis, we need to work together to survive.
