Shoppers in Panama prefer corner stores

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Panamanian shoppers are increasingly turning to corner stores or mini-supermarkets for food and drinks, according to a study of consumer spending.

The smaller outfits offer advantages like being closer to home, and sometimes extending credit up to 15 days. Large chain retailers claim that these stores engage in unfair practices, such as not complying with price controls and failing to follow tax regulations.
