Rainbow Friday: Beef Country, USA – the SA expat’s Friday shopping feature

February 5, 2016

Shop of the Week – Beef Country, USA

Safas living in the wonderful state of Florida may find it interesting to know they’re not the only immigrants co-existing with Muricans in Florida – the Everglades National Park is the only place in the world where crocodiles and alligators co-exist.

And if you happen to find yourself in the 3rd most populous and flattest state with the longest coastline and most golf courses in the USA, you will definitely want to visit your local South African shop, Beef Country, in Port Charlotte.
