Everyday shopping is rather traditional: some white and brown bread, milk, butter, sugar, salt, eggs, sausages. But it’s not necessary to visit different provisional shops such as bakery or butchery to buy food for the family .
Friday evening my Mum and I examine our kitchen more carefully as Saturday is our shopping day. The shopping list is rather long, so we both go shopping.
The method of shopping is very simple. In a self-service shop a customer goes from counter to counter selecting and putting into a basket the goods he wants to buy. Then a customer (покупатель) takes the basket to the check-out counter where the prices of the purchases are added up. After paying money to the cashier the customer can get his purchases.
Mum and I go to the supermarket where we can buy different things at once: fish, bread, sausages, tea, sugar, spices, eggs.. And what is more importable they are always fresh and tasty.
Another department of the supermarket, which we have to visit, is a dairy. At the dairy we buy milk, cream, yogurt, cheese, butter and other products.
My Mum and I are regular customers at the greengrocer’s where potatoes, carrots, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, oranges, apples and other fruits and vegetables.
Sometimes I have to go to a department store. I can buy there fabrics and footwear, glass, ready-made clothes and cosmetics, toys and electric appliances, furniture and sport goods, cameras and films, and what not.
At the butcher’s there’s a wide choice of meat such as beef, pork, mutton, chicken and turkey
I can’t but say that our shops are becoming more and more European-like. Their halls, adverts attract more customers. Shopping gets some element of fun and entertainment.
