Metro Manila · Convenience Stores and Sari Sari Stores
If you don't need large amounts of water or your local water store is closed already and you don't want to spend the night without water, the best option is to go to the nearest corner shop and buy some water there.
Be it MiniStop, 7Eleven or the small shop around the corner (called Sari Sari Store), they all sell purified, distilled water in sizes from 330ml to 5 litres. Buying water there is more expensive than buying it from the Water Stores, especially if you are using up a lot of water. In addition to that, water bought at those small shops does not come with a dispenser. So if you buy a 5 litre bottle, it can be quite difficult to not spill half of it on the floor.
