It features a small supermarket that sells soap, local and imported foodstuffs and beer. Some departments now accept Visa cards

V-Shop on Thanon Khun Bulom between Thanons Setthathirat and Samsenthai. Outside in front is a small express café where they serve some of the best coffee specialties in town (Lao Mountain Coffee), shakes, fruit juices, waffles, doughnuts – good for people watching on the edge of the chinese quarter.

Riverside Minimart on Thanon Fa Ngum, the Mekong promenade.

City Minimart on Thanon Samsenthai opposite Wat Si Muang - maybe the shop with the most extensive range of merchandise in the town, and somewhat cheaper than the shops more in the centre.
