This Shop assistant helps Shopkeeper Kofi run the Karamja General Store, located in Musa Point.
When right-clicking on a shop assistant, you have two options other than examine: Talk to, or Trade. Clicking trade sends you directly to the store's wares menu, where you can buy and sell goods. Clicking talk to is a more roundabout fashion of this that ends in her explaining the player/store stock tab.
