Added DiffLines:

France and Northern Europe have similar stereotypes, with the only real difference being the nationality of the owner. In France the shopowner will be Moroccan or Algerian (usually a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berbers Berber]]) and in Northern Europe an expatriate Turk (though generic Middle Eastern is also popular).
