The Corner Shop

Wherever you hang your goods is your shop!

This tradition started a few years before our first democratic elections in 1994. Those who couldn't afford the rental for a shop in the center of town, just set up on the sidewalk.

These days there's hardly sufficient space to walk , but those who shop in this area don't seem to mind at all.

I am glad there is nobody forcing them to move along. Outdoor markets are wonderful!

Even though our people are trying to make a living, I really don't think its fair to just hang your stuff in every open space. There are bylaws to be followed and I think the City of Durban should be strict on those. People cannot walk on pavements because of hawkers who have ignored the law.
