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.
