If we want to pay in cash, we may use banknotes or coins. In our state 1 crown has 100 hellers, in Great Britain 1 pound has 100 pennies and in the USA 1 dollar has 100 cents. Money you can earn, inherit, win, borrow, steal or win in a bet.
Someone who owns a small shop is called a shop keeper and someone who is employed to serve customers in shop or store is a shop assistant.
In case you want to exchange something, remember to keep the receipt. If you have a student identity card, some shops may give you a discount. If something is too heavy to carry home yourself, the shop can deliver it. We can choose where we want to do our shopping. Nowadays there are various types of shops, such as corner shops, market halls, supermarkets, hypermarkets and big department stores.
87% of British people live less than a mile from their local corner shop. A corner shop is a small shop on a street corner or near a street corner. Many of these shops are run by Indian or Pakistan families. Most corner shops sell food and newspapers. They are open until late in the evening, as well as on Sundays.
Street markets are cheap. Most markets sell fruit and vegetables, clothes, things for the house and records. In London, there are about 40 or 50 market halls. Some towns are called market towns: a market is held there, usually once a week. People come from the surrounding villages to do their shopping. In Konice there is an annual Christmas trade in December. Then, around 6 o´clock p.m. you can see great fireworks. Supermarkets, hypermarkets and department stores
In a supermarket you can buy food and drinks, and goods from chemist and ironmonger (Billa, Kaufland, ...). A hypermarket is very large and sells almost everything (Tesco, Globus, Makro, ...). Such competition between supermarkets and hypermarkets could improve shopping possibilities and keep customers more satisfied. A typical feature of modern big cities are department stores which in London are located near the West End (e.g. Mark´s & Spencer´s, Selfridges, Harrods, etc.). The most famous British department store, Harrods, started as a small grocery shop in 1849. The present store has more than 300 departments and a staff of over 4000 people. The display in the food hall is amazing. For example, there is a choice of over 500 types of cheese.
