"Okay, it's Tina's Food Market, so food is number one," Laurik said. "Beer number two and then cigarettes."

They have a little bit of everything - something for everyone!

"Some people don't have a car, so we have everything here from home decorations, men's clothes and women's clothes," Laurik said.
