be found at the corner store or neighborhood supermarket, they typically head to small grocers, also called
mini-grocery stores. Such retail establishments sell food and items that are uncommon or not carried by bigger
stores. To set up your mini-grocery store you'll need to address the legalities, find a location, acquire
equipment, choose suppliers and advertise your business.
