Handlar’n stores are the local mini-mart on the corner or perhaps a town’s only grocery store. The stores offer accessibility and proximity to groceries and services, in city centres and out in the countryside. The personal involvement of the individual retailers often makes Handlar’n stores a social meeting place in smaller communities.
