Practical large shopping malls are not the only source for shelf commodities and shoppers in mayor Portuguese cities still largely visit the corner specialty stores.
Some of these are beautifully decorated with ceramic tiles or woodwork, and many have old fashioned signs. Fruit and vegetable stores are as colorful as one can imagine, these are also places where owners and customers appear to have grown up together in the quarter.
Is this going to be rare to find in a few years to come?
