# 13 Shopping

shopping_1Can’t call them shopaholics, but Saudis simply love to shop or have to shop with not even knowing it. Well, since there is a shopping mall between two malls in every corner of  Saudi, you can’t blame people from buying things they don’t need. As a part of boosting the economic plan, the Saudi government builds a mall for every citizen in the country. Ironically, every mall has almost the exact same stores, therefore, Saudis don’t have to drive far to find a certain store, they just can go to the closest mall and find whatever they need. A normal scene in a shopping mall is that, every single member of a Saudi family will be carrying at least ten shopping bags, it  seems as though they had just robbed a bunch of stores.. From electronics to clothes, people will buy anything that has a price tag on it. Another “must have” for Saudis, are cars…yes cars are a must in any household for transportation, but for Saudis cars are luxurious items. Usually, Saudis own more than one car. A car for the man of the house, another for the “Madam” that comes with a driver as a part of the package, and finally of course who can forget the kids, one for each boy.
