MANILA-- The latest branch of the world-class S and R Membership Shopping chain in Metro Manila is opening soon in the fast-growing business district of Novaliches , now divided between Quezon City and Caloocan City.
To be called S and R Commonwealth, its spacious building is now nearing completion at the corner of Quirino Highway and Commonwealth Avenue, near Kilometer Post No. 20 in Barangay Kaligayahan, Novaliches, Quezon City.

The new exclusive and retail supermarket chain is rising at the former site of the closed International Steel Manufacturing Company (ISMC) in Barangay Kaligayahan. It is about a kilometer away from SM City Fairview, Robinsons Place Novaliches, and Ayala Fairview Terraces, all located also along Quirino Highway in Barangay Pasong Putik Proper, Novaliches.
Once it becomes operational, it is expected to cater to over half-a-million customers from both the Quezon City and Caloocan Ciity portions of Novaliches, as well as from neighboring Valenzuela City and the eastern Bulacan city of San Jose del Monte and towns of Norzagaray and Sta. Maria.
