178 How to Succeed in Your Sari-sari Store


Sari-sari Store
There are already a number of blogs and articles out there on how to put up a small sari-sari store, but I haven't found the best piece yet that actually contains practical and applicable know-hows on how to actually manage the business itself. 

I've been a customer, a taga-bantay (seller) and now, an owner myself. I've seen our store close, re-open, close and then re-open again, just to see it close again!

 

Don't worry, I was not in-charged yet during all those closing times of the store. There are a lot of factors that can make or break the business especially since a sari-sari store requires discipline, attention and focus. 

Allow me to share with you the most practical tips that can help you become successful in running a sari-sari store so you won't find yourself having trouble taking this kind of business.


It ain't yours

Stop - Not Yours
Most owners would want to put up a sari-sari store for various reasons. Most often than not though, it's about taking some nice profit while providing the daily needs of the family. Way wrong reason I say. Why? Because in a matter of months, a once full-blooming store will eventually start thinning and run dry because the capital has evaporated already!

There must be some discipline involved! This is the best, yet the hardest strategy that can save the business and make it prosper. 


You should consider the store as if it's not yours. Simply put, if you want noodles, softdrinks or a biscuit, buy them with your own money! 

Don't take a noodle or any of them for FREE! Pay what is due to the store so that there is no loss in your capital.

Consuming goods will eventually shrink the business, no matter how huge your initial capital is. I've seen it a number of times already! My niece and nephews would grind out every snack they could, we'd even have our lunch for free, courtesy of canned goods from the store. The result -- the store's capital shrunk little by little 'til we're left with little display in the shelf, so few we have to close it. Ugh.

One good thing about owning your own sari-sari store is it that gives you convenience of not having to force yourself on making credits or utang on other stores. But for the business to survive and grow, you MUST consider that credit as if you owe it to another and not to yourself. You should pay that credit you owe to your own sari-sari store!



Apply the Rule of 10
Apply the Rule of 10
Taking profits from a sari-sari store can make or break the business. So it's important to have a definite plan on how you want to have your gains inside your pocket. Most owners would simply keep a fixed amount from the daily sales, say 50 a day, which will they consider as profit or tubo.  

The only problem with this method is that during days when your sales are low, you still either get 50 from the sales or skip saving.


But what if your store managed to sell only 300 for the day? You get 50 and that means you're getting almost 17% of your total sales for the day! It is critical to remember that you only gain a mere 1 to 5 peso on each item. Taking more than what should only be your profit will lead to cutting down your initial capital instead of making it bigger.

This could be simply solved using a computerized program such as POS (Point-of-Sales), but putting a computer to work for a small store doesn't practically fit the equation. So what you should do is to apply the rule of 10. Get the 10% of the total sales for the day as your profit. Say, for the 300 day sale, you only get 30, instead of  a fixed amount. For a sale of 1000, save 100, and so on. This will prevent you from getting money over the limit of what should only be considered as profit.


Start a price war

Start a Price War
When I was a kid, there's this store in our neighborhood that sells overpriced goods with uhm, head-scratching, finger-biting incredible price that we ended up calling it Gintong Ani (Golden Harvest). 

You see, your customers are not from another planet that does not know the actual price of each item you sell because, they too, know the market where your supplies come from! So do not overprice your goods!


Yes, you have to weigh how much you should price each item, especially those consuming electricity such as softdrinks, but do not overprice! 

Now if you happen to be the only store in a remote, isolated area, then kudos for putting up one! And I couldn't agree more if you sell prices as high as the sample I've mentioned since 1. they simply won't have a choice as of that moment and 2. your transportation expenses are expensive enough to make your prices expensive too. But if you are in a community with competitors, then I suggest that you start a price war, but not to the extent of almost having no profit at all! 

Normally, you should pen 2 to 5 pesos for each item that are often sold such as softdrinks, and 5 to 20 pesos for items that can stay on the shelf for a longer period such as liquors, canned goods, and soap.



What are the basic items to sell again?

Chichirya & Snacks
The starting capital for a store is around 5 to 10 thousand pesos, depending on your budget and the size of your store. Of course, you wouldn't want to put few items on the shelf of a larger store. I initially cashed out  5 thousand pesos when I decided to re-open our sari-sari store. It would be better to start with just the basic items, and then expand your products little by little. Why? Because from the start, you wouldn't know your market, or what items are to be often bought by your customers. 


So what I did is to list down every items that are being asked, then buy those. As for the basic and initial items, here they are:
  1. Cigarettes
  1. Drinks / Beverages (softdrinks, bottled juice, liquors and beers)
  1. Toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, bath soap, dish-washing liquid, bar soap, detergents, bleach, etc.)
  1. Canned Goods
  1. Noodles
  1. Cooking aid (frying oil, soy sauce, vinegar, powder mixes, MSG, egg, garlic, ketchup, tomato paste, sugar, salt, etc.)
  1. Powders in Sachet (Juice powders, coffee, milk, coffee mate, choco powder, etc.)
  1. Snacks or what we refer to as chichirya
    Snacks are generally divided into 3 groups:
  • Retailed Snacks - these are the typical tig-mamiso or 1 peso-valued snacks such as Boy Bawang, Sugo, etc. As of writing, 1 pack of these goods costs around 15 to less than 20 pesos and each pack normally contains 20 pcs. So the normal profit is only small, ranging from 2 to 5 pesos per pack.
  • Big Snacks - these are those solo packs we normally get in convenient stores. Sometimes these snacks also have smaller packs in retail as mentioned in no. 1. Examples of these are Snacku, Chippy, Piattos, etc. Prices vary, but you can profit from 2 to 8 pesos each.
  • Sweet Goods - these are candies, chocolates, lollipops, milk powders, bubble gums and mints. It's better to put them on glass or plastic jars with caps to keep them away from ants.

 
Take Down Notes

Take Notes
It's important to note items that are being asked by your customer especially when such items are currently not available in your store. 

However, you should first consider the customer's position. 

If this customer happens to be in your neighborhood, then there's a possibility that he'd come back to look for that same product, so you might want to consider adding that product to your shelf. 


But if it's a customer-by-chance, it may depend on the product itself. Is this product seasonal such as candlestick? Or will it be sold in the market based on its marketability and purpose such as wax or mosquito repellant? If you're unsure, you can still buy these items though. That is, if you have extra cash and provided that these items can be put on the shelf for a long period without risking its quality.



Always Available  
 
Out of Stock
Your sari-sari store can't be a one-stop-shop, more so when it has just started. 

But when the product being asked by your customer is currently unavailable, say ubos na (out-of-stock) and not wala (nothing) so that your customers will be brain-washed that the item they were looking for is just out-of-stock but that you actually sell them, even if you actually don't. 


Of course,  you should ensure that you buy these items so that the next time they look for such and turns to your store, they won't be pissed off from hearing the same ubos na line.



Preserve Product Quality

In order for you to establish loyalty among your customers and become your potential suki (loyal and recurring customer), you should safeguard your products' quality as well. You should monitor your goods (at least once a week) to see if there are any products that should be discarded from the shelf such as when a chichirya lost its crispness.
 
This will keep  you from selling such items to your customers only to see them give it back to you asking for  a refund because of the bad quality of the product you sold. Below are the basic things you need to consider:
  • avoid placing products such as noodles and snacks or chichirya from direct sunlight to preserve crispness and good quality
  • if you sell tomatoes, keep them refrigerated or immediately remove rotten ones
  • wipe-off dust from softdrinks bottles with a clean cloth before putting them on refrigerator
  • if you're using stapler or thumbtacks to display noodles and other products in sachet such as coffee, juice powders and milk, make sure you're not hitting the seal above the pack. Even a tiny hole caused by thumbtacks will allow air to penetrate the item, thus making powders to become hard over time. And, ants will notice this before you do!

Pack that!

If you have time, and a bigger capital, you might want to consider packaging your own goods. The return on investment when you do the packaging yourself is around 20 to 30% greater than when you just buy the already packed item such as sugar. What will you need? Oh, just a small weighing scale (one-time investment) and a pack of plastic that you will use to re-pack your goods.

The type of plastic will depend on the item you will repack, just be sure to check the quality of the plastic so it will not spoil the look and quality of your packaging. For small goods such as garlic and pepper, there are small plastic containers that you can buy. Of course, since you'll be doing the re-packing, you need to buy products in larger volume, say, 1 sack of sugar.

Typically, if you buy 1/4 sugar in the market, priced at 11, you only profit around 2 to 3 pesos, depending on your pricing. But if you buy at least a half sack of sugar, you'll learn that by re-packing on your own, you're only buying that same 1/4 pack of sugar at around 8 to 9 pesos, instead of 11! So selling at the same rate you normally would, that means you will now earn 5 to 6 pesos per pack. 

But that's not all, you can also pack such goods into smaller grams, you just have to do some math to make sure your making better profits out of it. As for other items such as garlic and laurel leaves, you just do it by no. of piece/s whereas for pepper and the like, you either use a smaller scale that measure grams or you do it manually via spoon.

Here are some of the items that can be re-packed:
  • sugar
  • salt
  • pepper (paminta)
  • garlic (bawang)
  • tawas
  • tina
  • chlorine
  • atsuete

Stars for Some Seasons

During summer or hot months, you should invest more on buying beverages and beers. It would be better to not just limit this with softdrinks, rather, include bottled juices such as C2, Gatorade, Zesto, Yakult and other popular products out there. This is to have a wider range of selection for your thirsty customers.

Softdrinks
On school and rainy season, expect a dip from sales on drinks because of the cold weather. You can now shift some money on canned goods and noodles since people would have less interest going into the market and choose to have convenience at their neighbor store. You may also consider adding items such as candles, match, charcoal and mosquito repellants. 

Soaps and most toiletries such as shampoo and toothpaste and cooking aids such as vinegar and oil are always in demand and does not come in season.


Say NO! to Credits, Please!

Bawal Utang
Credit won't do any good to your business, particularly in a sari-sari store. 

Whenever an item is sold, you should be able to replace it the next time you go to the grocery. 

However, if many or some of the goods were sold in credit, you will not have enough money since you were not paid in cash. Hence, you need to bring out extra cash in order to fill in this void. 

Otherwise, you will not be able to buy these items. 

But what if these are frequently-sold items from your store, such as softdrinks and canned goods? You will miss the selling opportunity! Credit makes it hard for you and others.

Alas, it's your call. If you're confident enough in the credibility of your customer borrower, then it's OK. This will test your customer's loyalty to you, though. At least be hopeful not to have this type of customer that buys in cash from another store and makes credit with yours. Aw! One way to avoid these is to actually post a signboard like most store owners do. This is to emphasize that you need cash to sustain the business and credit won't do any good for you. Again, this is on a case-to-case basis. 


Can stacking 

Can Stacking
In stacking cans and other items, make sure to put older stocks in the upper stack and the newly bought items are in the lower position of the stack so that they don't stay that long in the shelf. 

This is a common practice even in large supermarkets, where they place the newly delivered goods in the bottom of the shelf so that the buyers will pick-up the ones from the top of the stack or shelf.

 



Put Deposits on Bottles

Many times, a customer will buy softdrinks or a case of beer without bringing empty bottles as replacement. You need to make sure that you put deposits for these bottles, especially if you don't personally know the customer. Because small bottles cost 2 pesos each, while bigger ones cost as much as 5 pesos! You need to put deposit so that the customer will be eager to give you back the bottle in exchange of claiming his deposit.

But what if the customer only has the exact money to pay for the price of the softdrinks or beer? This will depend on you. If you personally know the customer, then sell, and just write down his name on a notebook so as not to forget. But if not, I'd say NOT sell, even if he's buying a dozen! Because the expense of the bottles will be greater than your profit! This happens only, of course, when you don't have plastic and straw nor your customer wants it in there.  



Don't Lose Your Customers 


Mad Customer
Of course, your customer's patronage will help keep your business to thrive. 

So you should always treat your customers nice. One way is to not let them wait. You see, in our place, there are times when you have to shout out loud before someone from that store can hear you. So most of the time, the customer ends up walking out of the store and finding another one because of the dismay and disgust of shouting before he is served. 


If you can't have someone to stay at your store, especially if your store is meters away from your house, consider installing a doorbell. Doorbells are not that expensive nowadays that you can actually buy from 99 (wired) to 350 (wireless) pesos only.


Say Thank You!

Say Thank You
Oh, did I forgot to mention Thank you?? Man, you have to say those words, even if you don't feel saying them at times because of a rude customer.  

Always thank a customer for buying, even if that customer is just a kid who barely shouts pagbilaaaaaaaaaaaan...!!!! for a candy.

    1. This is the best summation I've found on Sari sari stores. I very recently funded my fiancées family in acquiring an existing store in Cebu. I have owned an Asian grocery store and a Asian restaurant here in the US. Some of my knowledge helped, but the sari sari concept as you've explained it here will certainly be helpfull. I've already sent a link to her.

    1. Hello ^_^

      OK lang naman po na magdagdag ng puhunan lalo na kung mag-expand ka ng store mo o magdadagdag ng mga produkto na ibebenta. 'Yung benta po sa araw-araw, itabi nyo lang 'yung 10% to 20% ng benta, bale iyon na po 'yung tubo ninyo na itatabi tapos 'yung matitira, 'yun ang pambibili nyo sa mga panindang nabenta na. Sa ganun naiipon na 'yung kinikita ng tindahan nyo, napapaikot nyo pa 'yung puhunan.

      Salamat din po sa pagbabasa! ^_^

  5. pano din po pala ang tamang pag iimbentaryo ng mga produkto.....thanks again..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Depende po sa laki ng tindahan ang pwede nyong gawin na pag-imbentaryo. Kung maliit pwede na ang araw-araw tuwing bago magsara, kung may kalakihank naman pwedeng isa o dalawang beses sa isang lingo. Pero meron po kasi mga paninda na mabilis maubos o mabenta gaya ng sigarilyo, softdrinks, noodles at asukal na baka kung linguhan ang imbentaryo ninyo ay ubos na pala bago nyo pa naimbentaryo.

      Ang isang effective na paraan po ay magkaroon ng "Masterlist" ng lahat ng paninda ninyo at lagyan nyo ang bawat isa ng "Supply Count" o 'yung dapat na dami ng bilang (tantyahin lang kung gaano kabilis maubos ang isang produkto sa loob ng ilang araw para hindi mag-over stock o kapusin). Ibig sabihin pag nag-imbentaryo kayo at mas mababa na ang aktuwal na bilang ng paninda kesa sa "Supply Count" na nakalagay sa Master List, kailangan ng bumili ulit ng produktong 'yon.

      Salamat Po!

      May I suggest a book? It's a simple and easy to understand book and it's a very light one, less than 50 pages I think. The book is "Small Store Marketing" written by Chiqui Escareal-Go and it will only cost you 85Php (from National Bookstore). It will teach you how to deal with your customers, competitors and further grow your business -- in the Philippine setting.

      Again, thank you for supporting my blog. Cheers! ^_^

    1. Hello ^_^

      Salamat din po sa pagbabasa at sa comment nyo.

      Mas maganda po if you can manage both stores para on weekends at bakasyon meron pa rin kayo source of income kahit papano dun sa small store nyo sa bahay since ang school is open lang naman ng weekdays (schooldays) at obviously eh un ang target customers nyo: mga students at parents. OK lang naman magrent basta po i-compute nyo muna mabuti kung malaki ang NET PROFIT nyo (meaning, yung tubo sa isang buwan less ang bayad sa renta). Malaking market ang school lalo kung public school yan pero isa sa kailangan nyo din i-consider ay mas marami ang competitors sa paligid at meron ding canteen sa loob ng school.

      Regarding naman sa kung papano nyo makukuha ulit mga dating customers nyo, that may already be a long shot, but not impossible. Remember na kahit mas mdami 'yung tinda nila, hindi pa rin nila kaya i-offer lahat. Try to look kung ano wala sa kanila like e-load, then you provide it. Or pwede kayo magbaba ng presyo pero para magawa nyo yun kailangan nyo bumili in bulk para makamura kayo sa palengke. Pero since concern nyo is maliit lang ang place at starting capital, pag-isipan nyo po muna mabuti 'yung possibility ng pag-rent sa school since 'yun ang mas profitable sa case nyo. Good Luck! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi, it depends on your location. Kung marami ka ka-kompetensya sa lugar, i-base mo sa presyo nila o ng mas mababa ng kaunti. Mas ok na 'yung maliit ang tubo pero mabilis ang ikot ng pera kaysa makabenta ka ng malaking tubo pero di na babalik sa'yo ang customer mo kasi mahal ang paninda mo.

      Normally, para sa canned goods at sabon, 5 peso na tubo is good and reasonable enough. For powdered products such as 3-in-1 coffee at mga noodles, 2 to 3 pesos per sachet na tubo OK na since ang kikitain mo naman ay per sachet. OK lang mas malaki ang tubo sa canned goods at sabon kasi mas matagal ang shelf life or expiration date nila di tulad ng mga powders at noodles kaya kailangan mabilis mabenta at wag matulog sa istante.

      Remember na kaya uso ang tingi dito sa 'tin sa Pinas ay dahil sa gusto ng tao makamura, kaya wag naman masyado mahal ang benta pag tingi ^_^

I have hesitation since bagong lipat lang kami dun sa place and I have 2 or 3 competitor. aside from that the place has something remote (Its actually a subdivision with almost 20 household lang ang nakatira) Is this going to survive?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Whew. That's one tough competition Ma'am. ^_^

      Assess your would-be competitors in the neighborhood first. Are they selling the complete items for the basic needs? If YES, then it's no longer advisable to enter this saturated market. Una, established na sila since nauna po sila sa'yo so in terms of "kumare" factor, they'll certainly beat you. Pero kung maliit lang naman tindahan nila, then you can still open a store but start with the basic items to sell first before you decide to go BIG.

      Definitely may bibili pa rin naman sayo lalo na sa una. It's in our nature to check-out new stores, di ba? Question is will they come back to your store? People will compare your price, service and availability or completeness of products you sell against your competitors.

      Thanks for reading! ^_^

    1. Naku, trust me, it won't work po. Maliit lang po ang tubo sa sari-sari store at madalas, mas malaki ang magiging "daily" 'nyo na hulog kaysa "tubo". Kaya ang mangyayari, unti-unti din liliit ang puhunan 'nyo, hangang sa magsara din o kaya eh mangutang ulit kayo para may mailagay na paninda, which is NOT a good thing, lumalabas 'yung inutangan 'nyo ang kumikita sa inyo. Kahit po 100/day lang sa una akala natin maliit lang yan, lalo na kapag bagong bukas ang tindahan at maraming laman, pero give it a couple of months at mararamdaman nyo ang 100/day na 'yan. Hopefully hindi po 5-6 'yan. ^_^

  18. Amazingly informative sir jef, we do have our own plans sir jef, in fact the store is almost done as of posting. We are planning it to be more on a supplier for the small sarisari store in our area and the nearby hillside villages since the location of the store is along the highway. We will outsource our products from delivery trucks or panel, as this is the practice here in the province instead of getting it from wholesale markets . Now this is my point, how many percent will be our markup price since we are selling it on a volume basis if not more than one item? Any inputs sir jef regarding sa know how on how to run a store in this kind of setup. Thank you very much sir! Here from istanbul. God bless...

  19. How can we compete against stores from the city and from our lungsod or town? By the way we are situated almost in the middle of the city and town in a 70 km highway point to point, where they usually got thier paninda. We thought of these sir since we saw a lot of small stores along the strecth not mentioning the stores located in the highlands. Would it be better for them to just dropby with us and shop?

    1. Mas maganda po 'yun, mas mahirap nga lang itayo :)

      First, you need to have contacts with the suppliers. And you should make them say "Yes" to go to your store and drop the goods. Otherwise, ikaw mismo ang kailangan pumunta sa palengke o kung san man sila nagbabagsak ng products. In that case, you will need a delivery vehicle.

      Regarding the capital for whole sale store, it will depend on what items you plan to sell. If it's grocery type then you need a bigger money to invest around 300K. What you can try to do is set-up your store like a regular sari-sari store (bigger) then get products in whole sale. This will allow you to sell your products cheaper. Kasi mas mura ang bili mo pag whole sale.

      Thanks! ^_^

  26. Hi Jeffrey,

    I really appreciate that you are writing a blog that is so helpful to those people who are into or still planning a sari-sari store. My husband just recently opened his sari-sari store but not within our house area but he rented a commercial building w/ a 3k rent per month. I was the one who gave the capital to him but he made it clear that he'll be the one to manage the store and I should not interfere whatever his 'diskarte' is. The mark up he puts in almost all items is around 2 pesos or less. Even those items that can stay longer in the shelves like soaps, zonrox, diaper etc are marked up by 2php only. The soft drinks are only marked up around 3 to 10 php (maximum). I am really worried if the store can survive considering he is renting and that excludes electricity bill and water bill. Not to count the gasoline expenses of buying those goods. These are the ff: reasons he gave me of having a very low add on 1. He want to establish a name that he is selling cheaper goods than the rest of the competitors within that area' so that customers will keep coming to the store. 2. He can establish or build a relationship with the customers. 3. The lesser add ons the more sales.

    But do you think the sari-sari store he put up will survive? Thanks! - Ann

    1. Hello Ann,

      First, thanks for visiting my blog :)

      I'll assume that the place where the store is located has a good amount of foot traffic (i.e near school, office, market)? Honestly, 3K worth of rental not including the bills you mentioned will be a tall task for your husband, especially since he decided to put cheaper cost on his products.

      Remember why buying the same item in a mall is more expensive than buying it on a local market stall? It's because these store owners in malls pay higher dues than those located in cheaper stalls!

      Your husband's reasons are actually good and realistic. Because product movement is what will keep the business alive. And that can be attained by his decision to keep the mark-up cost of the goods to a minimum.

      Now here's the problem: his competitors can simply duplicate his strategy since "price war" is one of the most basic things you can do to outlast your competitor. What if his competitors decided to lower their prices too and yet, his competitors weren't renting (because their stores are located in front of their house)? If that happens, your husband can no longer hold onto his strategy. People would simply go to where their money has more value, (sometimes) regardless of the relationship" established between him and the store owner. That's one of the problem that your husband may encounter here.

      But given proper manning, inventory and good service to his patrons, I'm sure he won't lose customers. The only question is this: will he be able to profit more than at least 5,000 pesos? Because if the profit is just enough to pay the rental and other utility bills, then maybe he should consider using the rented space to do another business.

      Good luck to you and your husband's store! Cheers ^_^

  27. Hi Jeffrey,

    Thank you for your comments and inputs. I really appreciate them.

    About the location, that's another issue since it's not strategic either. The feel of the location is like you are living in a province so the place has very low foot traffic. The location of the building is beside a low-mid class subdivision and most of the customers are from the subdivision. And it was also confirmed that another tenant will be selling sari-sari products in the same commercial building we are renting. So it adds my worries again. And as for the profit, the lowest gross sales of the store is 170php:-( and the highest is around 1k + php (though I understand since he just operated it 2 weeks ago) But my husband is very passionate in his sari-sari store. I know he has the right attitude of being passionate and positive about it. But yes, I think with proper manning, real time inventory, good service would help the store to survive.

    Again, Thank you very much! and God bless you.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello :)

      Salamat din po sa pagbabasa ^_^

      Dalawa po ang pwede n'yong gawin base sa situation n'yo at ng 3rd store n'yo:

      First, hayaan n'yo lang po ang mga competitors n'yo since "it's a business", and as long as wala naman kayo ginagawa other than offer items in cheaper cost, wala naman problem 'don. But this might give them the impression na you're into unfair trade practice nga lang at makaroon kayo ng bad image sa community n'yo.

      Second, since you're into wholesale/retail sales, pwede po siguro kausapin n'yo ang mga katabing tindhan sa area n'yo na kayo na ang mag-supply sa kanila ng mga produkto kung saan "wholesaler" kayo. Bibigyan n'yo sila ng discount sa presyo. Pero pag "ordinary customer" ang namimili (meaning 'yung walang tindahan), ibenta n'yo sa presyong kagaya ng mga katabing tindahan n'yo. Kung suki n'yo ang bibili, mas malaki ang kita (tubo) at hindi pa mgagalit ang mga katabing tindahan. Kung hindi naman sa inyo bibili, ok pa rin kasi kayo naman ang supplier ng tindahan na binilhan nila.

      Salamat po :)

I've already sent a link to her.

    1. Hi Jon,

      I think you can only get them from either grocery or sa mismong distributor. These distributors deliver in bulk purchases, but it depends sa lugar ninyo. Try asking 'yung mga grocery stores sa palengke ninyo about their suppliers. The norm is that they would only deliver sa mga malalaking stores (mostly public markets).

    1. Do some basic estimation , Sir. Kayo lang ba ang store sa village na 'yon? Gaano kalaki ang population sa area na posibleng maging suki ninyo? What if may magtayo ng isa ring tindahan malapit sa inuupahan ninyo at ang tindahan nila ay sa bahay lamang at wala silang inuupahan? Pwedeng pwede nila babaan ang presyo ng paninda nila kasi wala silang upang babayaran kumpara sa inyo. Kung price war ang magiging labanan, malaki ang chance na matalo kayo.

      But you can maximize yung pwesto by offering also school supplies, frozen goods, etc. para mas malaki nag maging kita ninyo. Good Luck! =)

    1. Hi Janice,

      The current system (that I know of) is that for San Miguel (e.g. Pale Pilsen, Red Horse, San Mig Light) they only have 1 distributor per area (or per city/municipality). So kung meron na sa area nyo, you can only apply as a sub-distributor under the main distributor. The same applies to PEPSI, COKE and Asia Brewery (Cobra, Tanduay Ice). The only company now that allows multiple dealers on same area is RC Cola. If you have more questions, just send me an email so I can help you further :)

      Well, first is make sure na trustworthy ang tinder mo :)
      If trust is not an issue, then discuss your concern sa kanya, ikaw ang may-ari, so I see nothing wrong if 'yun ang gusto mo. As for your question, it's actually ideal na mag-refill na o bumili ng kapalit ng mga nabentang items o paninda before maubos. But every item has its own *marker* kung kelan ka bibili na dapat. Depende kasi yan sa kung gaano ba kabilis maubos ang panindang iyon. Example, kung ang itlog ay mabenta sa tindahan mo, then the ideal would be you have 2 trays. Pag ubos na ang isa, bili ka na ng isa ulit. :)

    1. Hi brix,

      Honestly, I'm not the authorized person to ask in your situation since it's about legalities. But from what I know, there are "laws" prohibiting tenants na magtayo ng commercial establishments (i.e. sari-sari store) sa mga private residences like subdivisions, apartments and condo units although normally, ang "by-laws" na ito ay jurisdiction ng property developer/owner. It's like an agreement between the developer and the tenant/unit owner. So same goes for you and the owner of the apartment.

      On my case, hindi allowed ang nangungupahan sa unit ko na magtayo ng store or make any major changes sa bahay or even my garage and that is clearly stated on our contract. But then again, this is just based plainly on what I know and from my own experience as I own a unit on a private community as well. Sana nakatulong somehow. Salamat rin po sa pagbabasa. Good luck on your business. ^_^

    1. Hi Diana,

      Thanks for visiting this post! :)

      Depende po sa lugar ang sagot sa tanong ninyo. Ang "safe" na sagot d'yan ay sa mga "direct distributors" o "pahinante" kayo mamili dahil sa presyong palengke o supermarket ang kaya nilang ibigay na presyo sa inyo. Isa pa, dahil sa marami ang panindang bibilhin ninyo, libre na kadalasan ang delivery, kaya mas makakatipid ka kumpara sa ikaw ang namimili sa palengke or groceries. 'Yun nga lang, kadalasang may minimum required na dami ang kailangang bilhin o "buk purchases" kung tawagin. Kung malaki ang tindahan ninyo, may malaking chance din na bigyan nila kayo.

      Sana ay nasagot ko ang inyong katanungan.

Sarili naming ipon ang pinambili ng mga goods, nagrerepack din ako at nagbabayad ako kapag may nakuha akong items sa mga ititinda ko. Frozen goods, gulay at mga kailangan sapagluluto ang tinda ko.

Pag nagtayo ng tindahan, dapat matipid din. Si Mama kasi magastos, bawat may mag-alok bibilhin. Disiplina, Sipag at Tiyaga. Lahat pwedeng umasenso. Huwag din kalimutan magdasal at magpasalamat sa Panginoon. Thank you & God bless.

  87. A very informative read especially for people looking to get into this kind of business. It is indeed very scary to start any business including sari sari store, and by reading this makes us feel confident that everyone can succeed. I'm an OFW for almost 3 years now and I'm also looking for businesses I could start together with my wife. We are looking at Pisonet+Sari sari store in one space. I got an idea on how much we could earn in the pisonet business but I have no idea how much can we earn monthly in a sari sari store. I hope someone can at least tell me how much we should expect monthly in a sari sari store. Thank you and will wait for a response. God Bless :)

    1. Hi Lester,

      That would clearly depend on the size of your store. A small one would average about 2,000 to 5,000 pesos per month while a mini-grocery type would give you an average of 5,000 to as high as 20,000 per month. Cheers! ^_^

    1. Have you tried buying in wholesale or bulks? This way, mas mababa ang magiging puhunan mo - so mas mababa mo rin maibebenta. As for the TRUST, it will take time since established na sa area ang nauna, and probably hawak nya talaga ang emotional edge kumbaga, dahil nauna sya, and that's reality. Lalo na kung nakakautang sa kanya ang mga customers nya. So what you can do is focus on having the products na wala sa kanya or services such as e-loading, or offer in bulk/discounts. Hope that helps a little. Good luck! ^_^

Ang rent for space is 5500 plus elec and water. Don't you think kya ba na maglagay ako sari sari sa carinderia and ilang school supplies sa place ko?

    1. Hi,

      You really need na hanapin ang mga ahente sa una. Kung malaki na ang store mo at nasa magandang location, sila naman mismo ang lalapit. Pero kung nagsisimula ka palang, kailangan mo talagang hanapin sila. You can try na magpunta sa inyong palengke at kunin ang contact sa mga kakilala mong may pwesto o kaya naman ay abangan sila pag nag-papa-order o nagbababa ng mga produkto nila. Tandaan mo lang na wholesale o maramihan ang usapan kung gusto mong sa ahente kumuha dahil may required quota o volume para ka mabigyan ng discounts.

  95. Hi po, bago lng po ung sari sari store ko may 2 sari sari store po sa kabilang eskinita. Tapos may nagtanong samin kung may permit daw po ba ung sari sari store ang sabi ko meron barangay permit. Dapat daw po may business permit din galing sa municipyo eh nasa 5thousand lng po ung puhanan ng tindahan ko. Ask ko lng po kung kailangan pa po ba ng business permit galing sa municipyo or okay na po ung barangay permit lng? Eh nagbabalak din po ako mag lagay ng pisonet kahit 4 units lang (profit sharing po un) sa akin lang ung pwesto sa kanila ung mga pc at internet.

    1. Hi Juny,

      I wish my answer would still be valid considering it's 2 months late. For me, the ideal time to resign is when your store's income = your salary. Kung ang NETO ng kinikita ng tindahan nyo ay singlaki na nang sahod nyong dalawa, why not? Pero kung hindi pa, huwag muna. BAKIT? Saan nyo kukunin ang pang-araw-araw na gastusin? Sa kita ng tindahan? :P

    1. Hi,

      Honestly, this kind of plan is bound to fail 90% of the time. Who will manage the store? Will you pay him/her? Is he trustworthy? Kung family member ang mag-manage at wala din alam sa business, most likely little by little malulugi ang business. But of course, there's still a probability na mag-succeed pa rin ang plano nyo. But that depends on a lot of factors. So aral mabuti sa plan before marching on!

      Best,
      Jeff

  102. Alam nyo ba, nag-umpisa lang kami sa 2 ream ng bond paper para sa school supplies store namin kasi wala kaming puhunan. Tuwing umuuwi ang husband ko weekly, ibinibili ko ng de-lata at iba pang kailangan namin sa bahay ang pera, tapos dini-display ko sa terrace namin na nakalagay lang sa plastic organizer. Di namin naco-consume lahat yun kaya yung natitira, naka-dsplay lang. Nung una wala talagang bumibili, masaya na ako pag umabot ng 50 pesos benta. tuwing pupunta ako sa palengke, sinusulit ko ang pamasahe, nagda-dagdag ako ng pencils, ballpens at notebooks. Nung minsang uwi ng husband ko, kumuha ako ng loadwallet ng globe. Medyo napansin na ang tindahan namin dahil sa load kaya nagdagdag ako ng candies and biscuits. December na yun kaya pagpunta ko sa Divisoria, naghanap ako ng mabebenta. Nakabili ako ng pogs at tex na mabenta sa mga bata, pati mga candies na di nila nakikita sa katabi naming tindahan. Sa Divisoria kasi, doble hanggang triple tubo kaya kahit nasa Bulacan pa ako, pumupunta ako dun kahit 1000 lang pera ko. Kumuha na rin ako ng loadwallet ng smart at sun, ang pera galing pa rin sa inuuwing pangastos ng asawa ko. Todo tipid kami para dumami ang paninda. Pati school supplies namin, dumami na. Ngayon, 1 year mahigit na kami at padami nang padami na ang paninda namin. Nasulot na namin ang ibang suki ng kapitbahay at nagsara na yung tindahan sa tapat namin. Mas mababa ang presyo namin sa kanila at yung ibang paninda namin namin, wala sa kanila. Kinausap pa ako nung isang customer namin na di na raw sya sa palengke bumibili kasi pareho naman ng presyo ko. Ginawa naming wholesome ang tindahan namin, walang sigarilyo at alak, puro pambata, pang-school at mga basic needs lang. 5 organizers na ang display ko at marami pang nakasabit. Nakakatuwa na medyo ok na tindahan namin at malakas din ang load kasi, halos kami lang naglo-load dito na mura ang charge. Ang secret, low price at kailangan friendly ka sa customer, bata o matanda. Hanggang ngayon, yung dapat na panggastos namin, yun pa rin ang pinambibili ko ng paninda plus yung benta araw-araw. May processed foods na rin kami ngayon at softdrinks kaya wala na akong problema sa pagkain. Sa susunod, dadagdagan na namin ng bigas at yung school supplies, sasabayan na namin ng computer printing, xerox at scanning jobs. Bitter na nga sa amin yung katabing tindahan na puro alak, sigarilyo at tinapay na lang ang tinda.

    1. Hi Rico,

      Apologies for the late response. Here's my personal take on managing your expenses:

      Simply total your expected expenses for the month and divide it to the number of days that your store is open, say:

      4,000 / 30 = 133.33

      So this means you need to save at least 135 pesos every day from the store sales so you won't mind the expenses such as rent every month. Just monitor if this 135/day won't hurt the store operational cashflow. Meaning, your store should at least generate a NET Income of 200 pesos per day (MINIMUM).

      *NET Income = tubo (hindi kasama puhunan.)

      Cheers!
