Student or Learner
I need your help please!
I can see the following sentences in a class book:
"Is there a chemist's near here?
Is there a baker's near here?"
Is the 's right in this case?
I'd rather use it this way: Is there a baker near here? / You can buy bread at the baker's.
What do you think?
Thanks for you help.
Are my sentences correct though?
In another book, I can see: You can buy flowers at a florist? Is this correct then or should it be "florist's"?
ok, so then I can also say: you can buy bread at a baker, right?
Good morning, Raymott.
(1) A drugstore is a big store that happens to have a pharmacy inside.
(a) As you said, the medicine is prepared by a pharmacist.
(2) A large drugstore is like a department store.
(a) One department is the pharmacy.
(3) The rest of the store sells groceries, clothing, over-the-counter medicines, ice cream, magazines, etc.
(4) The drugstore is run by a manager.
(a) I do not know how much authority s/he has over the pharmacy.
(5) Many people who shop at a drugstore never buy any medicine.
(6) I have noticed that many people who come here from other countries
are a little confused when they discover that a drugstore is not solely
devoted to drugs.
Have a nice day!
