Model Answer:
I don’t really like to go shopping unless I have a good reason to do so, because it usually takes longer than usual for me to do the shopping most of the times. However, here I would like to talk about a shopping place which rather encourages me to visit it once in a while.

The name of this shopping place is “Buy All You Can” which is located in the outskirt of my hometown.  It is more like a “supercenter” which opens at 6:00 am every morning and closes at 11:00 pm. I would say that it is easily one of the busiest shopping places in my town because I have seldom found a dull and quiet moment there, no matter what time I visit it.

Covering an area of about 7000 square feet, with a large parking space in front of it, this shopping place draws all types of customers, not only from within the city but also from outside of the city, most of the times. Of course, these customers have a handful of reasons to visit this busy supercenter, but the main reason is that it sells a complete line of grocery products, including fruits, vegetables, dry foods, snacks, loaves of bread and cakes, fish, meat, dairy products, frozen food, kitchen and household appliances, and cleaning products, among many other items for our daily needs. This supercenter also has separate sections for “seasonal clothing items” and “beauty products”.

One of the distinct features of this shopping place is that it sells both the “high-end” products as well as the products for “regular” customers. There are other reasons for visiting this great shopping place, but I visit it twice a month mostly to buy some fresh fish and vegetables.  

This is my favourite shopping place because I can find and buy the products, I want, rather easily and quickly without asking the store crews there. Besides, I also like to visit this big store because it promotes the products of “serious small businesses” as opposed to just selling the merchandises of only big and profit-making companies.
