1 SENIOR CITIZEN ID on Tue Feb 04, 2014 7:10 pm


Arresto Menor
Good day I have a question po.Ano po ba ang tamang batas for senior citizens when purchasing..I have an issue earlier that my father was trying to buy medicine to one of mercury drugstore and the manager refused to provide the 20% discount because my dad does not have the senior citizen ID.I thought that as long as you have proof such as driver's license ID (that he actually presented)it should be honored.What is the correct law for this?Please help. Thank you.
