Сочинение на тему Speak about shops and shopping in people’s life

Though I dislike shopping, it is part of our everyday life. Our life would be inconvenient and even impossible, if there were no shops at all. They provide us with all we need and even more. Shop assistants try to sell what they have on offer. I don’t like being persuaded to buy the unwanted whatever the reasons are. That’s why I go to small shops only. Prices at those shops are higher than in supermarkets, but the staff is less impersonal. If you are a frequent customer at such a shop, you are likely to be recognised and treated in a different way. They value their shoppers and respect their opinion. Unfortunately, smaller shops can’t offer a great variety of things to purchase just some basic things. In the past if you wanted to buy something unusual, you had to go to a supermarket hoping that they had it in stock. Nowadays you can buy things online. Their prices are unbeatable. The variety is beyond any wild dreams. Whatever you choose, it will be delivered to you by post. The trick is that if something goes wrong, no service will be available. You are at risk if buy something in this way. No insurance at all! Be aware of possible problems. Local market can be of help if you seek something common at a moderate price. As for me it is the best option.

1. Who is responsible for doing the shopping in your family?

My mum does the shopping in our family. If my father goes to any shop he buys the best but he spends the most. I am allowed to buy something inexpensive like bread or milk.

2. Is shopping boredom or a pleasure?

For girls it is definitely a pleasure so they can spend a lot of their time at shops. Boys are a different story as they hate it. They fail to see the difference between two variations of the same thing on sale.

3. Do you always bargain when you shop?

When you go to ant shop they usually have set prices. There is no point in asking for a discount unless you go to a local market. Most sellers there are self employed so they can lower prices.

4. Where do you prefer doing your shopping?

I like doing the shopping. My favourite places to buy are small shops though sometimes I have to make my way to supermarkets especially if I want to buy something unusual and less typical.
