Spaza Shop

kwadapsspazaA spaza shop (or store) in an informal convenience shop usually located in someone’s yard. They supplement the household income by selling household items, items made by the family, or produce grown by the family. Spaza shops started during the apartheid years in South Africa when transport to shops in the townships was expensive.

Is it possible to turn the concept of a spaza shop to an online location?
