Grocers and their old fashioned small stores
by Cem Kesici
After membership of TE, one of the good things that I have learned is this kind of small shops are very generic, specially in developing countries.
We know them in Turkey as 'Bakkal's and still have a very important role in the daily life. Sometimes, they role is more than selling goods, they even lend some money.
Unfortunately, this shops in danger against of new huge supermarkets all over the world.
