The Baxters go shopping"

The other day my wife took me on usual shopping round. In fact, I hate going to the butcher’s, grocer’s and shops of this sort but of course, I have to help my wife about the house.

First, we bought some pork and beef at the butcher’s. Then we dropped in at grocery and greengrocery. Jill wanted to buy sugar, salt, tomatoes and cucumbers. We also called at the baker’s where we bought a loaf of brown bread, some buns and biscuits.

On our way home, we were passing Selfridge’s. “Let’s drop in here for a while. You need a suit for everyday wear”, my wife said. I agreed.

Selfridge’s is still one of the biggest and most popular stores in London. They sell everything here. All the things for sale are on the counters. The customers walk round and choose what they want. The store has several departments: women’s clothes, men’s clothes, shoes, toys, sports goods, and umbrellas, leather goods, china and glass, food and so on.

When we entered the shop, we went straight to the men’s department. A salesgirl showed us a number of suits but we didn’t like any of them. One of them was a bit loose on me, another was a bit loose on me, and another was too tight. As to the third, our opinions were quite different. I like the suit. My wife found it too expensive. She wanted a suit as good as that one but less expensive. The salesgirl showed us a cheaper suit. It was of good quality but I did not like the style. We were about to leave the counter when they delivered a new selection of goods. They were not only suits but also different kinds of clothes: coats, raincoats, shirts, jackets and trousers. I tried on two or three suits. The last was all right. It was just my size and fitted me perfectly. We both liked the suit and the price was not high. “We’ll take it, wrap it up, please!” I said to the salesgirl.

After we left the men’s department, my wife spent the rest of the morning trying on hats. She wanted a pink straw hat to match one of her summer frocks. There was such s good selection of hats in the shop that in the end Jill bought two.
