How to do grocery shopping ?

Have you ever wanted to shop at the supermarché (supermarket) ?  

Here are some tips to help you out. In France there are many big chain supermarket with some offering services de station-service (gas station services). Usually French people go to the supermarket once a week. If you want to use a shopping car, you can find them in the parking lot, rather than at the front of the store. You have to use one euro to rent one out, which it will get back at the end of your shopping trip. Also cashiers do not weight your vegetables and fruits for you, you have to do it yourself. You place the fruits and vegetables on a scale and a barcode sticker comes out of the machine. The you place the sticker on the bag and take it to the cash register. It is also a good idea to bring you own shopping bag, usually supermarkets charge for plastic shopping bags. If you are looking to get a discount, get une carte de fidelité (supermarket loyalty card), you can collect points and get dicsounts on certain items. Some supermarket even have un catalogue de cadeaux (gift catalogue). These gifts correspond to how many points you have, once you have cumulated enough points you pick out a gift from the catalogue. If you are looking for something more unique you can try of the many magasins spécialisés (specialty shops), they come in all kinds of from cheese shops to tobacco shops, organic food stores,… Of course you can get anything from regular supermarket. If you are looking for a wider variety, something really unique, these are the places to go. When you are finish shopping and leaving the store, do not forget to say bonne journée (have a good day) to the person who helped you, this is very polite and shows respect to the staff.
