Onions become currency in Filipino store

A retail store in the Philippines accepted onions as payment for select in-store items on Saturday. A branch of the Japan Home Center accepts one onion in exchange for the customers’ chosen item. “Every customer has a limit of three item purchases only. All collected onions will be used in our community pantry,” the store said in a social media post, adding that “any kind and any size of onion are acceptable.”

The promo dubbed “Pay with sibuyas (onion)” is valid only for this Saturday. “I heeded the onion-raising drive of Japan Home, where onions are legal tender for one day only,” a customer said after buying items from the store.

“Onion proceeds will be used for a community pantry project — fun and for a cause,” quoted the customer.
