I was joyriding onboard my partner’s motorbike the other night when I saw a streamer along the corner of Lagao National Highway and Tiongson Street, which caught my eye.

Hey!  It’s an announcement about an upcoming branch of Mercury Drug!

The following day, I went back to the same place and took these pictures.

Now people from this side of GenSan wouldn’t have to go far downtown to buy their medicines and other needs.  Mercury Drug – Lagao will soon be here.

I just hope it will have a walk-in mini-grocery just like their Pedro Acharon Branch.  And let it open 24 hours!

Now that would be great for Lagao’s burgeoning night life since Lagao has a string of bars and restaurants along its main roads.

Mercury Drug will now have three outlets in GenSan:  P. Acharon, Pioneer and Lagao National Highway.
