Sample Answer

Okay, so there’s a small, store, a convenience store about 5 minutes from where I live at the moment.

I use it almost every other day.
It sells the usual sort of things such as food, toiletries, candy, alcohol, cigarettes, and lots of other things you might need.

It’s actually really well stocked; there’s not much they don’t have which you might need on a daily basis.

I guess it must be about 100 square meters or so, not very big, but it’s well organized and they have shelves full of the most popular products that people want to buy – mainly popular food products.

There are a couple of freezers and refrigerators with frozen and chilled products and then they also have fresh local bread and cakes on sale too.

The store is located in a busy street in a residential area, so there are plenty of people passing by it all day and night and it’s open 7 days a week, all year even ion holidays.

Personally, I use it because I like the owner, he’s a nice guy and we’re quite friendly. But apart from that, it’s just around the corner from where I stay and most of the time I can’t be bothered traveling further to go to a bigger supermarket.

I tend to pop in for a couple of things whenever I’m passing as it’s on my way home. So it’s a shop I use regularly because it’s so convenient.
