    in/at

    I have bought it at our department store.
    Miss Lost has worked in our firm for two years.

    What is diffrence between 'our deparment store' and 'our firm' ? Is 'in our department' a wrong usage?

    There's nothing wrong with "in a department store". There is also nothing wrong with "at our firm". In fact, it's better than "in our firm".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I can't see any reason to use the present perfect in that sentence. I would simply say, "I bought it, etc."
