In Ghana we have shopping malls and market places. One cannot replace the other. If you want to buy local food stuffs for cooking you to the market place. If you want to buy imported products you go to the shopping mall. Most 80% of all cooking ingredients for all households are bought from the market place. The rest are from the bigger shopping malls or more precisely the supermarkets which are mini shipping malls. ALL wardrobe shopping can be bought from boutiques or the general market at circle or Accra.
