No Walmarts (yet)

Moto tire store

There are a handful of big-box style stores in Cotonou (one to two hours from our house depending on traffic), but the majority of shopping is done at small stalls along the side of the road. Most stalls specialize in one type of product – small electronics, plastic containers, or like the stall in the photo above, used scooter parts.The shop in the photo below breaks the mold and offers auto parts along with televisions, rakes and more. The inside portion of this store is the size of the bathroom in a Radisson hotel room.
