Alternative Retail in Low Income Urban Areas ?

General U.S. Forum - Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions - City-Data Forum - www.city-data.com
I was watching this video (

) which inadvertently touches on a fairly interesting topic . The fellow at the 41 second mark states that he sells clothes and shoes as well as a number of different items . Which naturally begs the the question of how common are such vendors in low income urban areas .

It's pretty widely accepted that many low income urban areas have a lack of local businesses and are also cut off/located far away from shopping districts . Therefore it stands to reason that such areas have a number of alternative retail sources ( for lack of a better term ) .

Is my assumption correct ? Do many low income urban areas have lots of street vendors selling everyday items on the sidewalk ? Do such areas have many unlicensed and/or non typical retail stores operating out of ( say ) private residences ?

Thanks for any answers ahead of time .
