Near my home, there is a shop. It’s not big, I can buy a lot of things on my way home. Sometimes I buy school things, like exercise books and pencils in it. They are very cheap. My mother often buys food and drink there. The apples in it are five yuan a kilo. I think they are a little dear.
There are only four people in the shop. Three young woman and an old man. They are very friendly. But the boss of the shop is a 16-year-old girl, she is a student. The shop is closed at 6:00 in the afternoon and you can’t buy things before 7:00 in the morning.
