At The Grocery

While at the grocery you could be asked by workers a variety of questions.

"Do you need any help finding anything?"
"Would you like a sample?"
"Do you have any coupons?"
"Do you have your grocery card?"
"Would you like paper or plastic bags?"
"Would you like any help out to your car?"

If you are asked any of these questions, here are ways that you could respond.

"Yes, can you please tell me where I can find your produce section?"
"No thanks, I know where to find what I need."

"What kind of samples do you have?"
"From the samples you offered me, where can I find them in the store?"

"No I do not have any coupons."
"Yes I do have coupons.  Let me get them."

"I do not have a grocery card.  What is that?"
"I do have a grocery card.  Here it is."

A lot of grocery stores offer a plastic card you could present when checking out that can offer special prices and points for how much you spend.  These points can sometimes be used for special promotions and sales. You can usually apply for one at the register.

"I would like paper bags please."
"I brought my own bags to use.  Here you go."

"No thanks, I don't need any help out today."
"Yes, I would like some help taking my groceries out to my car."

You too, may have questions while at the grocery.  Below are a few examples of things that you might ask.

"Can you tell me what isle the frozen food is in?"
"Can you help me reach that?"
"Can you tell me the difference between...?"
"Can I please have a pound of the oven roasted chicken breast?"
"Do you have any more of this in the back room?"
