At first glance, my short visit to Zanzibar, off the coast of Africa, provided little insight for the UK convenience retailer. But observing the wholesale and retail environment, where most of the competition was with hawkers and stall holders, illustrates how markets work.
If there are modern convenience chain stores on the island, then I completely missed them. The best examples of well-laid-out and merchandised shops were pharmacies. But, as in India, stock is kept behind the counter and out of temptation.
Similarly, if there is a shopping mall or supermarket on the island, I did not see it. The one cash and carry/supermarket that I visited was very small and packed to the roof with goods.
