Lilongwe Gets A Wal-Mart

Okay,  Wal-Mart isn't in Lilongwe, yet.  But, a Game store opened in Lilongwe. Game is a retail store from South Africa.  Going into the store is like being teleported to the western world.  I almost feel as if I am no longer in Lilongwe when I am in there.   

Surprisingly, a lot of the merchandise is the same as what you would find in a Wal-Mart.  I guess that is what happens when everyone buys their products from China.  On the downside, everything is twice as expensive.  Guess you can't really have it all.

UPDATE:  Game is now owned by Wal-Mart.  So, Malawi now has Wal-Mart.
