The Super Saver Department Store.

The Super Saver Department Store is the most popular in town. It isn’t the cheapest, and it isn’t the most expensive. It doesn’t have the best products and it doesn’t have the worst.

The furniture isn’t the most comfortable you can buy, but it’s more comfortable than the furniture at many other stores.

The appliances are not the most dependable you can buy but they are more dependable than the appliances at many other stores.

And record players and tape records are not (he best you can buy, but they are better than the record players and tape records at many other stores)

In addition, the location is convenient, and the salespeople are very helpful.

You can see why the Super Saver Department Stare is the most popular I town. The prices are reasonable and the products are good. That’s why people like to shop there.

III. Read and translate the text.

Returning a small appliance.

Sometimes you buy an appliance that doesn’t work or that breaks soon after you buy it. Most things come with a warranty or guarantee, which is a promise by the manufacturer or the seller that they will fix the item if it breaks within a certain period. You should return the item as soon as possible to the store where you bought it; the store will either repair or replace it with a new one. Sometimes you have to send the appliance directly to the manufacturer.

When you return something, it is important to describe the problem clearly. Take the sales receipt and the guarantee with you. If you have to send the broken appliance back, write a letter explaining the problem. Also send a copy of the sales receipt, but keep the original receipt.

If you are clear, firm and persistent, you will be able to solve the problem.
