Well I have developed a few shopping cart sites. There are many different technologies out there, but what you want is a CMS / E-Commerce Platform. CMS stands for Content Management System, and E-Commerce is a fancy way of saying shopping cart.
The power behind a CMS is the rapid deployment and management of data / content. The best open-source that comes to mind for a CMS / E-Commerce is the Magneto project. http://www.magentocommerce.com/
I also do evelopment with software called Joomla. http://www.joomla.org/. In combination with yet another free software add-on for Joomla called VirtueMart. http://www.virtuemart.net/
Magneto is what I am starting to get into developing. It is not more power full than Joomla and Virtuemart, but it is better suited to be a true E-Commerce platform.
Hope that helps,
