A western supermarket is so unlike what we see in China.
In fact, China does not have many real supermarkets outside of the major cities.
To enter a huge building and buy anything from food to furniture all on one floor is quite uncommon in China.
When we think of shopping, we usually think of buying food and clothes.
Modern western supermarkets sell boats, and you can also buy furniture, newspapers, household items and electrical and electronic goods
On entering a supermarket, we usually take a small basket or trolley.
This will depend on how much we plan to purchase.
Wheeling a large trolley around a supermarket can be a pleasant experience.
As we walk along aisle after aisle, putting in the things we want, we can get most things in one single store.
Then we cue at the checkout and wait for the clerk to tell us how much to pay.
We can pay by cash, check or credit card; it doesn’t matter to the supermarket.
Nowadays we can even go shopping without leaving our home.
We can purchase our daily goods over the Internet.
We are shown a supermarket and on the screen we go down the aisles.
We pay by credit card, and the purchases are delivered to our homes the same day.
