Household items can be purchased at the above shops, as well as many other outlets mostly along Spintex road. There are also many hawkers that sell furniture on the street that is of a high quality and much cheaper than those in shops.

What are factors that might affect my shopping habits in this country/city?
Always be prepared to negotiate a better price because the local vendors always raise their prices once they realize you are a foreigner. You will often be able to get things at half the price of the original asking price if you bargain with vendors.
