Model Answer 1:
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 for 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.



Model Answer 2:
Shopping is really fun in Paris, France and when it is at any reputed store, the fun increases thousand times more. I like to shop my necessary stuff from a classic supermarket for it is enriched with a huge number of items. Most of the people come here to shop their daily necessaries as this is a great store for them. Thank you for the question and I will describe the entire matter here in short.

The shop is located at 32 Rue Poteau in Paris. This is one of the most important business districts in the city. The location is easily accessible to anyone. In fact, the store has its locational advantage and thus it is able to attract customers and consumers more than the other superstores. Many of the reputed superstores are located in such areas where people do have the locational advantage. I mean those are located in some places of the city where people cannot have comfortable access to their necessary goods.

The shop is commonly known as Monoprix. This is a superstore and sells various goods and products. The store is famous across the locality and the country as well for its extensive collection of products, goods and other services. In a word, this is one of the best superstores in the city of Paris. Besides, the shop is also famous for its quality products, attractive product offers and returns policy. When someone buys any product from the store and finds any damage to the product, the authority changes the products under certain conditions. But in some cases, the other superstores do not have such a fair policy. As a result, it has gained acceptance among the ordinary shoppers. 

The shop sells a wide range of products and goods. The product range is wide and the list includes foods, bakery, beauty products, fashion materials, attires for men women and children, stationery items and more other. The store also has another feature- it provides home delivery to the users. In fact, this is an outstanding feature of the superstore. The majority of the superstores are reluctant to home delivery while you can have any of the available products as per your need at your doorstep. The store also sells products from various reputed brands. And all of the products are original. They do not play any hide and seek with the clients on the product issues. The price is also reasonable. Though it may appear higher than the usual market rates, it ensures the quality of the products and services. There are no records of complaints against this superstore so far.

I frequently go to the shop for some reasons. The most important thing is the reasonable pricing issue. I have found that some other superstores were charging more than the usual price for some specific products. When I pointed out the issue to the sales counter, they could not provide any satisfactory answer to my query. Then I compared the prices of the same products with the selling price of this particular store and found that it was more reasonable. Since then, I changed my store and started shopping from here. Everything is neat and clean. It also provides a good number of extra care which are unavailable in other shops. So, I like Monoprix more than the other superstores.
