    Smile idiomatic traslation

    Is there an idiomatic Spanish phrase to refer to a small, neighborhood, "Mom and Pop" convenience store- the kind of place kids might hang out with friends and buy sodas and snacks? This would be a small,privately owned store that sells some grocery items and basic household needs.

    Thanks!

    I am not sure if it implies the same idea, but here are some expressions I found:

    negocio familiar
    tienda de toda la vida
    tiendita de la esquina
    tiendita

    Hope it helps!

    También puede ser ´quiosco´, that´s the way we call these small places in neiboorhoods, where you can get a soda, a snack or batteries! and in neiboorhoods, they are usually run by the members of the family...
