Unconventional storage


Possible only at certain (read: non-Monsooning) times of the year for this Yangon department/grocery store in the heart of downtown, the inventory from their various departments that does not fit in-store is kept across the street in their parking lot located beneath an overpass. The desk at the entrance both manages payments for use of the parking lot, and also handles stocking and logistics as employees cart and carry goods across the street. The added convenience of a stockroom located in the parking lot is that when a customer selects a particularly large item inside (a case of soda, a full-sized dresser, an ironing board, etc.) it is unnecessary for them to personally move it down the stairs and across the street as it is already located right next to the customer’s car.
