Some of the shops in Naryan-mar. There is no central shopping area; housing and shops are just haphazardly put up. Most of the time, there is ice and snow on the ground, so they don't worry about parking areas or sidewalks.

I think you didn't quite get it. The stores weren't put where they are merely by chance. On the picture provided a little shopping strip was build to service the "Karmanovka" area of the city. They don't look very glamorous and true there is no sidewalks but it is a bare minimum of what the people needed at the time I guess. You have to visit Alaska and you will find something very similar to this or even worse looking.
