What is a 'dairy' in New Zealand?
Hopefully, today's fun fact will avoid any confusion when visiting New Zealand 😉 Also, because curiosity got the better of me, I researched different names for 'corner store' around the world. In Australia, we have 'corner store' and 'milk bar' (for the older generations). In the UK 🇬🇧 they have the 'co-op' or 'offy', Canada 🇨🇦 calls them 'variety stores', in New York City 🇺🇸 they're 'bodega', and in Japan 🇯🇵 , they're called 'konbini'. Do you know any other names for the corner store?⠀
