A brief 小卖部-ography

A brief 小卖部-ography_1

Here is a recent piece for Danwei (RIP) on some of the more colorful members of the diverse species of Chinese convenience stores (or “小卖部”, literally “small selling place”), along with what I think makes them that way, analyses of their most popularly sold item, and more. Enjoy, and comments always welcome/appreciated.

Shown here: One shop’s transition from “closed for sleeping within” to “open for business”.
