Nagpayong is a sub-barangay (or Sitio, Satellite) of Barangay Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City. It’s the last area in Pasig City that you’ll come across along Sandoval Avenue on your way to San Lorenzo Ruiz, Taytay, Rizal. The Pasig City Jail, Bahay Aruga, Nagpayong Elementary School, and Centennial Homes are some of the landmarks that you’ll see here.
Today, South Star Drug Nagpayong opens. It’s located along Sandoval Avenue right beside the Nagpayong Sub-Barangay (Satellite) Hall. South Star Drug is a chain of drugstores in the country that was established in 1937 in Naga City. Today, South Star Drug (a.k.a. SSD) has more than 250 branches in Central Luzon, Southern Tagalog, Metro Manila and Bicol Region.
The opening of South Star Drug Nagpayong is a major improvement in this part of Pasig City. With a huge number of residents, I’m pretty sure South Star Drug Nagpayong will flourish. Hopefully, other major stores like 7-11 will also open a branch here.
