* An ECComics story featured a drugstore owner who was miserly, paranoid and exceedingly crabby. During the story, he flips out when a little girl sets up a lemonade stand in front of his store. He's so obnoxious about this "competition" that the locals buy her lemonade just to spite him. [[MandatoryTwistEnding Since this is an EC Comic]], it turns out that [[spoiler:he's the one secretly supplying the little girl's lemonade. He built up a JerkassFacade over decades to prevent people from taking advantage of him, and just can't get himself to drop it for genuine charity cases.]]

In TheWestern and many other low-population settings, the ShopKeeper is the person who runs the "General Store" which [[WeSellEverything sells]] (and sometimes [[WeBuyAnything buys]]) just about anything the locals or visitors could possibly need. He or she is a fairly important member of the community, since everyone visits their establishment while in town for vital supplies. This makes the general store a good informal meeting place and a handy source of local gossip. This kind of store is often the OnlyShopInTown.

* Shotgun-toting, easily provoked, and extremely deadly in ''{{VideoGame/Spelunky}}''. It is all but impossible to meet a seasoned player who has never died to one.
