We only do our groceries at Tiong San Harrison here in Baguio. They have the cheapest grocery prices and the widest inventory of products in one stop. The check out process is fast because they use barcode scanners and their cashiers always have a smile in their faces.
There is another branch of Tiong San near the public market, but we rarely go there because of its very narrow isles which make it difficult to maneuver the shopping cart. Plus we don’t really like the attitude of the employees there, especially some of the lady baggers who are busier flirting with their fellow employees than doing their task at hand.
In fact, the only reason we shop there is for the Chocquick they have in stock (for some reason, Tiong San Harrison don’t have them. Oh Harrison management, this is a not-so silent plea to include Chocquick in your inventory!)
The business has been here for a long, long time. Even before SM, Tiong San was already here to serve the needs of Baguio residents. I hope the establishment will exist for as long as we live here. I don’t think Baguio will be Baguio without Tiong San stores.
