Shop Like an e-Gyptian

Economist
17-Feb-2014

"EGYPT should be fertile ground for e-commerce. Hellish traffic in its cities and an undeveloped retail sector in many parts of the country make online shopping an attractive option. And Egyptians have long been accustomed to having things delivered, particularly food. In medieval times fires used to heat the public baths also served to cook foul, a traditional dish of brown beans, which was then dispatched to locals. Today many convenience stores, pharmacists, tailors and even hairdressers are in the delivery business."
