Corner Shops (Convenience Stores)

在英國,我們都稱便利店 (convenience stores) 為 corner shops,因為這些便利店通常位於大街 (high street)上或轉角位。Corner shops 也會通常在火車站和巴士站旁邊,機場裹面和在油站裹面。

有一些 corner shops 是自家家庭式營運 ,也有一些是連鎖或專營權便利店請注意,並非所有的 corner shops 都是24小時營業

In the UK, we call convenience stores as corner shops as this type of shop normally located on the high street or ‘just round the corner’ within the neighbourhood. Corner shops are also commonly seen next to train and bus stations, inside airports and in petrol stations.

There are some corner shops which are run independently by families and some are chain or franchised shops. Please keep in mine that not all corner shops runs 24 hours.

除了超級市場,英國各地還有許多農夫市集。我們將在未來的文章中介紹英國的農夫市集。請耐心等待 :)

Apart from supermarkets, there are also many farmers’ markets all around the UK. We will introduce farmers’ markets in our future post. Please wait patiently :)
