The main road   runs through the centre of the town, with shops, market, cafés, central post office, a couple of petrol stations, and branches of two of the major banks and to an internet café.

Choma’s largest supermarket is aptly called Superstore and has a good variety of fresh and frozen food.   There are a few small hotels and on the main road in and near the town, a guesthouse in the suburbs and a couple of excellent spots on farms just outside of town.
