Shopping is an activity that is important for our lives. Most people have to spend part of their day doing shopping for food or other essential items. We have many different types of shops. We can go to a big department store, a mall, a smaller local shops, or an outdoor market.
Different kinds of shops
At a bakery we can buy bread, rolls, cookies and cakes.

At a sweets shop we can buy cakes, candies, and ice cream.
At a toy store we can buy dolls, games, balls and other toys.
Small shops vs. Big department stores
Very favourite are supermarkets. At a supermarket we can buy everything from food: meat, cheese, eggs, milk, butter, bread, sugar, flour, tea, coffee, fruits, vegetables, something from chemist and sometimes clothes.
The most favourite is a department store. It has different sections where we can buy various goods – clothes for women, men and children, shoes, electronics, books, furniture, perfume, cosmetics and of course food.
Most women go shopping every day to local markets because they are near their homes, but there is smaller choice than in supermarket and food is expensive.
Families do a larger shopping in a department store once a week. It’s like a trip.
Pros: There is a wide choice of goods, cheaper prices and we can buy everything what we need on one place. It’s good for bigger shopping. Often there are some sales.
Reasons for shopping
