12 # Cue Card (A shop near where you live)

Describe a shop near where you live that you sometimes use.

You Should Say:

  • what sort of product or service it sells.
  • what the shop looks like
  • where it is located

and explain why you use this shop.



In a small town, there really is not much to choose from. But then again, you start to appreciate what few services are actually rendered well for the said town. I find it difficult to choose between two stores that make me go absolutely bonkers whenever I do get the chance to visit them. These stores are named Crazy Store and Mr Price, respectively. Well, with Crazy Store, the name says it all. It has a splendid variety of random and wonderful items; some of which include household items, sweets, books, pet toys, garden tools and decoration pieces, internal decoration pieces and toys. I like the multitudes of themes going on in that one, tiny store. Going there, I feel as though the town has a lot more to offer than what meets the eyes. The store itself just lifts my spirits as it brings out a childish wonder when observing the books, tools and other items I seem to be drawn towards, despite objections from my very limited wallet.

Mr Price, on the other hand, is a store that exclusively sells male and female attire. I'm quite fond of it because it is among the stores that exhibit an adequate amount of variety with their products. The store offers everything from formal apparel to sleepwear for both men and women. As the name may imply, their prices are perfectly reasonable as opposed to ridiculously high. Additionally, the quality of the products and clothing they offer is far from poor and makes for a very attractive combo, that combo being: low prices and good quality. Both these stores complete the package of convenience by being located in the same town I live in, close to home as well.

Thank you.
