Mayor of Panama Cleaning Up Street Vendors

ShoppingMembers of the National Union of Traders and Microentrepreneurs on Friday expressed their dissatisfaction with the eviction done in recent days by the Mayor of Panama in the 5 de Mayo Plaza and the pedestrian area of Calle Central. America Champasaur of the Traders Association reported that the authorities evicted them, but meanwhile in Casco Viejo there are foreigners who are selling their crafts made in Panama. According to the complainants, the eviction hit 25 Panamanians. (Telemetro)

Editor's Comment: In Panamanian Spanish, they call the people who have those little street side shops "buhoneros." The word is applied to anyone who sells small items in a small little temporary shop or stand like this. These guys always play a sort of cat and mouse game with the authorities from the Municipality. They get kicked out, they come back, repeat, continue.

The Popular Albrook Mall - Now Even Bigger

Shopping By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - I had about an hour to kill this morning and was over by the Albrook airport so I decided to stop into the Albrook Mall to take some pictures. They have recently opened a new section of the mall, which has been built and managed by the Grupo Los Pueblos. This mall basically "wraps around" the National Bus Terminal and is probably the most popular of all of the new shopping centers in Panama in terms of foot traffic. The stores in this mall are lower priced and aim more for volume than anything else. There are stores like the Oca Loca and Conway which come straight from Ave. Central so you can find very inexpensive merchandise. The only downside to the Albrook Mall is the parking, none of which is under cover which is important in the rainy season. And, this mall is large and long - wear comfortable shoes because you have to do a whole lot of walking to get from one end to the other. I just wanted to grab a few happy-snaps and then I got distracted by the pet shop and then ran out of time. Anyway, for what it's worth...

Panama hat making a slow comeback

Shopping Munich, April 22 (DPA) Al Capone wore one. So did Winston Churchill and Ernest Hemingway. We are talking about the Panama hat, which is traditionally made in Ecuador. The elegant headwear woven from palm fibres, considered a status symbol for men for decades, is now making a slow comeback. Custom-woven Panama hats are in worldwide demand and numerous German milliners are in the business of refining ones imported from Ecuador. 'These days when people want to treat themselves to something special, they buy a Panama hat,' says Andreas Voigtlaender with satisfaction. He is the chairman of the society of German speciality hat shops (GDH) and runs a hat shop himself in Wiesbaden, central Germany. The headwear, which is also popular as an elegant sun protection, has now found its way into famous boutiques along the Berlin Kudamm and the Kö in Dusseldorf, the main retail and shopping centres in the cities. 'The Panama hat will never be a mass product like it was in the 1920s and thereafter. But you can definitely say it is experiencing a comeback,' said Voigtlaender.

Economic Advantages in Panama

Shopping A critical aspect in establishing a new business relationship with Panama is being assured that merchants in the Cayman Islands will receive the goods purchased and the supplier will be paid. Since Scotiabank already has a well-established office in the country, they were able to help provide some helpful information to get started according to the Assistant General Manager of Scotiabank, Bruce John. “It was very helpful to understand how you protect yourself,” said Mr John. “It might take the first two or three transactions to get things smooth and then it will improve from there.” Mr John explained that because Scotiabank already had relationships in Cayman and Panama, he made several introductions between businesses. Such as introducing a local supermarket to poultry and coffee distributors. These initial discussions also lead to visiting plants and stores to see the types of product available. Then it is just of matter of smoothing out the logistics he noted.
