Mobile shopping here is not done on a "smart phone" it is done with your feet shopping from a wheel barrel. These street vendors are self employed and mobile. They go where the crowds are at different times of the day or choose their favorite location. They also can take their shop home with them at night. Each wheel barrel has a specific group of shoppers that it will target. For example some are nothing but school supplies and they park outside the schools. Some sell bread and roam the neighborhoods starting in the morning until they run out of bread. Then there are the shops that go to the market everyday and line the streets making it difficult to drive down the streets. They turn a 2 way street into a one lane mess!
