** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has a police officer who sells armour and weapons, such as guns, bows and swords, to the teenaged protagonist for a modest sum. The game encourages you not to think too much about the implications of a policeman with '[[{{Yakuza}} connections]]' handing over lethal weaponry to underage schoolchildren. He also has a bitchin' selection of shoes and swimsuits. It also has a pharmacy, but it only sells healing items - the voodoo dolls, magic gems, and whatnot come from the antique store next door, whose owner is explicitly trained in some interesting forms of magic (and [[GlobalCurrencyException only accepts precious stones as payment]]).

* In ''Film/{{Tremors}}'', Chang's general store sells a sufficient range of products that when Rhonda [[FanService loses her pants]] and shoes, replacements in her size can be found right there on the shelves. This, for a shop that supplies a valley that's home to less than twenty people. Probably justified because it's literally the ''only'' store for miles around.

* Also suburban "pharmacies" in the United States, which sell grocery staples, office supplies, cheap toys, and seasonal merchandise as well as prescription and OTC drugs, and grooming products. They're basically a modern-day version of general stores. This arguably makes the aforementioned ''Videogame/EarthBound'' example slightly more TruthInTelevision. Furthermore, pharmacies everywhere in the US all sell cigarettes, and usually sell alcohol (if the laws of the state allow it). CVS eventually stopped selling cigarettes when they asked themselves why, as a health-and-wellness store, did they sell something as toxic as cigarettes? They then replaced all the tobacco products with stop-smoking aids.

They then replaced all the tobacco products with stop-smoking aids. This approach with drug stores in the United States is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] due to laws in some places prohibiting stores from being open on Sundays unless they sell essential items. The easiest such essential item to obtain and sell is medicine, and so these drug stores become one-stop shopping in these towns for people who need (or really want) to buy something on a Sunday. Inversely, major department stores like Target and Walmart installed pharmacies into their locations so they could remain open too.

It sells things you would never expect to see in the same store together--such as, say, [[Videogame/EarthBound baseball bats, frying pans, instant ramen, and cold remedies]]. The smaller the store, the more specialized you would expect it to be, so the more unlikely this seems--why is a tiny general store out in the middle of the sticks offering fine art?

Sometimes, the stuff for sale there shatters the bound of all logic--where on earth (or the moon) did they get their hands on a ''lunar lander?'' Lord only knows who their suppliers are. If the shop is little and out-of-the-way, it may come bundled with a possibly insane, [[Film/JamesBond Q-like]] proprietor who is quick to suggest all manner of goods to his or her customers. If the shop is enormous, expect to need a map just to find your way to the microwave popcorn.

Also quite common in video games, due to the fact that [[AnEconomyIsYou the gameplay tends to be sculpted around the hero's quest]]. If you find a shopping district full of these then you are in a BazaarOfTheBizarre. Oftentimes, [[TookAShortcut even the far reaches of the unknown]] are populated with tiny tent stores that [[BiggerOnTheInside boast a huge selection]] despite no one shopping there (in fact, being so far into the game, they're likely to have ''more'' stuff).

-->''Most of the other shops were in fact impossible to identify. When a shop appeared to sell a mixture of ghetto blasters, socks, soap and chickens, it didn't seem unreasonable to go in and ask if they'd got any toothpaste or paper stuck away on one of their shelves as well, but they looked at me as if I was completely mad. Couldn't I see that this was a ghetto blaster, socks, soap and chicken shop? \\

* In [=RPGs=] like ''DragonQuest'' and ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'', it's common to have a weapon store, an armor store, and an Everything Else store, selling food, healing items, traveling items, [[GottaCatchThemAll collectible items]]... and occasionally weapons and armor too. ''VideoGame/{{Ultima}}'', the granddaddy of them all, had perhaps the most bizarre example in a vehicle store where you could buy horses, boats, ''flying cars'', and '''starships'''.
