Shops are very important in our life. There are many different kinds
of shops in every country,
Large shops with many departments are department
stores. In these stores we can buy almost all we want. In the
shop-windows we see all the things which they sell there. When we want to
buy something we take our shopping bag and
go to a shop.
People like to dress well as their living-
standard is constantly increasing.
At the shoe-shop we can buy shoes, boots, sleepers, sandals, rubber-
boots, overshoes, shoelaces, high-heeled shoes or
the haberdashery we can buy stockings, socks, scarves, gloves, mittens, ties, tights,
handkerchiefs, zippers, belts, safety- razors, blades and a host of other small
grocery we can buy flour, tea, sugar, cereals such as oatmeal, buckwheat, rice,
millet, pearl-barley, etc.
At the green-grocer's they sell onions, turnips,
cabbage, potatoes, melon, carrot, beet, radish, grape, etc.
At the dairy you can get milk, sweet cream, sour
cream, yogurt, curds or cottage cheese, etc.
At the baker's you can buy
bread, bans, rolls, etc.
I want to add that many people
do the shopping at the market. There the collective-farmers
and state-farm workers sell the vegetables and fruit which they grow themselves. They sell meat, milk,
cottage cheese and other things.
