    At a supermarket-aisle

    How can I give direction for groceries in supermarket's aisles?
    For example : can I say you can find eggs at the beginning/middle/end of aisle 1 on your right hand side?
    Thanks.

    Re: At a supermarket-aisle

    We're not usually given directions that are so specific.

    Q - Where are the eggs?
    A - Aisle 12.

    If I had to give any more information, I would say they were at the bottom, middle or top of an aisle. Generally, the bottom is the part of the aisle closest to the tills (which are usually at the front of the shop) and the top of the aisle is towards the back of the shop.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    At the beginning, in the middle, at the end of aisle 1 on the right.

    There must be some very impolite customers and shop staff in your area, Ems.
