Story: The Corner Market
Instructor: Ron Haviv

“In a time of increased globalization and multi-national corporations a small slice of nostalgia continues in Turkey in the form of mom and pop corner markets. Though they are not disappearing at the rate of their U.S. counterparts they are slowly being pushed out of business by large supermarket chains. Brothers Mehmet and Yasar Yildirim began working at their father’s corner shop thirty years ago as young boys. Their father retired five years ago leaving the shop for them to run”.
