Model Answer:
I have to collect my groceries for the daily use and I usually collect them from Penny Market (commonly known as Penny in Germany), a German based super shop. The store sells different sort of items and groceries and also renowned for its discounts.

The super shop is located in Birkheckenstr in Stuttgart one of the busiest cities in Germany. The shop location is accessible from different directions and a secure parking station is available as well for the customers. The staffs of the store are also cordial and provide all forms of support to the people who come to shop. The entire shop is under CCTV surveillance and thus it a secure place for shopping. Besides, the shop provides a good rate of discounts to each of the products it sells. Since the everyday necessaries are cheaper, it has many permanent clients who come to shop here from the remotest part of the city.

The shop is known as Penny and internationally it is renowned as Penny Market. The market is operated by Rewe Group and has over 5000 stores across the European countries. The shop was established with an innovative concept to sell things at a cheaper rate than the existing stores and shops in the country and then it got a rapid expansion for its sky-rocketing popularity among the citizens. Besides, the products sold in the shop are fresh and faultless while many of the stores sell faulty products. Additionally, the store also offers different attractive offers against most of the products which satisfy the clients most.

Penny sells different sorts of items including fresh fruits, dairy products and milk, bread, meats, electric appliances, household goods, textiles and different other branded products. The most important reason of gaining popularity among the clients is maintaining the products’ quality. All of the products belong to the top class and if something is found faulty, the shop staffs remove the products by themselves. The services provided by the shop staffs are notable and the discount is another prominent issue for the shop to mount on the popularity summit within a short time after its initiation. The rechargeable shopping coupon is also an attraction for the clients and it reduces the troubles of carrying hard cash or debit or credit cards. Penny also sells gift cards to be used as presenting someone you admire who will use the card to get necessary things from the store.  

I frequently visit the shop to get my daily groceries and in some cases, I also get some household items from the Penny. I prefer the store most than most other shops because of its smooth service and product quality. I have found manufacturing troubles with the brands in the other shops but in Penny all the brand products are sold in the perfect condition. The shopping environment is fine as well. It is one of the leading discount shops in Europe that sells worth billions in a year and has also created employment for a large number of people across Europe.
