  • 5 Best Thrift Stores Around the Metro
  • Anyone who has tried it knows all about the rapid spur, the arm-numbing hanger switching, and the rewarding feel of chasing good finds within racks and racks and piles and piles of stuff at an ukay-ukay store (thrift shop). As they say, the best is yet to be dug out.

    So patience, physical strength, and an eye for quality are what you need if you’re planning to try your hand in thrift-shopping.

    Check out these ukay-ukay stores around Manila where you can find the cheapest clothing items that are, in most cases, also the rarest and one of a kind!

    Starmall, Alabang


    Many say this ukay-ukay in Starmall Alabang, which is also the former Metropolis mall, is one of the most convenient places for thrift shopping. The store is air-conditioned and the usual smells of old clothes are not that strong inside. You can also find some food stalls inside and we all know that this shopping activity can drain a day of your energy so you can fill up that hungry belly before or after the rummage.

    Address: South Super Highway Alabang, Muntinlupa

    Ukay-Ukay Wagwagan, Pasay


    Ukay-ukay having the lowest prices? They have it even lower at Ukay-ukay Wagwagan in Pasay Rotonda, whose weekly sale will make every ‘ukayholic’ go mad. 

    Here, you can score 3 or 4 items for only Php 100—definitely so much for a steal. This place is also air-conditioned so you don’t have to worry about the extreme heat of the Philippine weather.
