Traders in Lagos, Ogun State Dump Rented Space, Use Cars as Mobile Shops
According to research by PUNCH Metro, more traders are now turning their automobiles into stores where they offer their clients commodities including clothes, shoes, bread, and fish, among other things.
The notion is gaining hold among vendors for a number of reasons, according to our correspondent, who watched the trend for a few days in some areas of Lagos and Ogun states.
Others use their automobiles to avoid having to sell their goods along the side of the road and being at the whim of law enforcement, while some claim to be doing this to save money on store rent.
Depending on what they are selling, those who use their cars to transport goods to customers target major bus stops, marketplaces, and offices.
Ladipo, Computer Village, and Oshodi, among other markets in Lagos, have seen an increase in the number of traders using cars as shops.
In Ogun State, bread was displayed and sold from cars at significant bus stops like Lotto and Magboro on the Lagos-Ibadan Motorway. A man selling catfish is typically seen with a pickup van along the main road in Arepo.
“The convenience and mobility of this business model are truly appealing,” a shoe seller simply identified as Chibuzor said.
Standing by his red car at the Mechanic Village in Itire with an array of shoes on display, Chibuzor added, “I have been using this car for about two years. It just made sense to showcase some of the items I sell here.
