    Question at or in

    I have problem with "at" location and "in" location.

    "at a store" or "in a store"?

    LC

    Thake this rule :

    at - on - in


    We can use these time phrases in the present and future .


    A-
    at + time & two or three days .

    Examples:

    time: at 7 o'clock
    at Easter
    at christmas .

    B-
    on +day & date

    Examples:

    on monday
    on july 2 nd.

    C-
    in + month & season & year / dacade / century .

    Examples:

    month= in june
    in summer
    in 1944
    in the twenty-first century.

    Remeber :

    We don't use a preposition with last and yesterday .
    We went there last year/ yesterday .

    It depends on the usage of the preposition.

    The goods at the store on the corner, are very low in price.["at" shows, here, location]

    He is now in the store. [inside the store]

    What about "in the last year"?
    e.g. I haven`t read anything interesting in the last year / in the last two years?[ unfinished action]

    Yes, we can`t use the preposition "in" with "last year" when the action is finished :

    I read the book last year.

    She works at International Bank.-correct
    He works in a international bank
    The first two sentences are correct.
    I`d say :
    Does Tony work at Midnight club? ~ Wow? Does he work there?/ in that place?
    Lots of people have fun in that club.[correct]

    My brother often has fun at...
    He works at/in an international bank.
