    I would say 'the Mackenzie market' and 'second-hand clothes', but they're grammatically fine otherwise. However, what do you mean by a 'beverage agency'? It sounds strange to me.

    Dear Tdol and other Teachers,

    - What I mean by "a beverage agency" is that it's a big shop which sells milk and soft drinks, and beer. That's what I mean. So does anyone have any other ideas?

    Thanks a million

    In the UK, shops that sell alcohol are called off-licences, and liquor stores in the US, I believe, and they would also sell soft drinks. You could use a term like drinks store. When you say big, does is sell to the public or to trade? If the latter, then it would be a drink wholesale.
