The commercial block bounded by Yacapin and Daumar Streets in Cogon District is Cagayan de Oro City’s main destination for ukay-ukay or bargain shopping.
Like in many other cities in the country, these ukay-ukay stores sell everything from used clothes, shoes, and other clothing apparel at super low prices. Despite its offering low quality goods, economics dictate the booming business of ukay-ukay. There are other ukay-ukay strips in the city but this area in Cogon has the bulk of the ukay-ukay supply. When new arrivals come, the streets will become narrow as buyers flock to the site hoping to be the first to find the best goods from the hundreds of piles of used merchandise.
