South Korean train carriage comes complete with refrigerated meat section.

Grocery stores inside subway stations are nothing new, but grocery stores inside the same train you happen to be traveling on are something else altogether. An anonymous tourist visiting the capital city of South Korea stumbled across a subway carriage that had been fully converted into a mobile grocery store.

The store is complete with a cash register and refrigerated display case that appears to have various fresh meats on offer. If the converted cart is able to offer cold-cuts, then there is very little to stop it from selling fresh vegetables and other essential foodstuffs. By doing so, the store would be able to offer an on-the-go alternative for many busy commuters who struggle to find time to pick up last-minute groceries.
