Romania: Kiosk As A Local Version Of Wal-Mart

An American in Romania writes about “the Romanian version of Wal-Mart”: “The Romanian kiosk looks nothing like a Wal-Mart, that's why it is so deceptive. It's a tiny building with room inside for one or maybe two people tops. You could probably link arms with three of your friends and completely surround the thing. Yet packed inside every Romanian kiosk are nearly enough products to stock your average Wal-Mart.”
