Twenty years ago, it was very difficult to find many food products such as ice cream, milk and certain snacks. Today, you can buy those things anywhere on the main streets at minimarts.
Most people who go to minimarts are youths. Nov Sokly, 22 years old, a young woman who loves to go to the minimart, said that she goes there to buy everyday items such as tooth palm, shampoo, snacks or milk. This is because the mart is affordable and closer to her house than the regular market. She added that besides buying goods, the minimart is a good place to relax, eat meals and chat with friends after a long day of study and work.
Furthermore, Sokly and her friend said that they love the mart because it provides, comfortable seats, wi-fi, and a quiet place for them to have group discussion and do homework assignments.
