Shopping in Supermarkets
I know some people do grocery shopping, but I also know a lot of people who don’t like it at all! People who don’t love grocery shopping would go to supermarkets. In those large stores you can find almost everything in need to raise your family or to clean your home just in this one place.
The supermarket helps save money and time. The little corner grocery store is often more convenient. It opens to late hours when the supermarket is closed. But in the grocery store, you have to spend more on most things, because store owner can only buy a small number of cases of one product from the producer, while the supermarket chain can buy thousands of cases at a time; so the supermarket can buy cheaper and sell cheaper to you.
Sometimes, the supermarket is very crowded. There are long lines at the check-out counter. But even so, it would take us much less time to go from one 1 small shop to another. We can do the family’s shopping once a week or two or even more only in one supermarket.
1. Which one is often more convenient, the little corner grocery store or the supermarket?
The little corner grocery.
2. Why can the supermarket buy cheaper and sell cheaper?
Because the supermarket can buy thousands of cases at a time.
3. Are there many people in the
supermarket? Yes, there are.
