Nowadays supermarkets are self-service, which means that you do not really have to ask for anything while shopping (except meat and fish, as they are usually measured and wrapped by butchers’ and fishmongers inside the shop). You find the different products in different aisles in the supermarket which makes shopping easier. If you buy your grocery at a smaller shop you may be assisted by a shop assistant or the shopkeeper. When you’ve collected everything you need, you have to go to the checkout to pay for your groceries. The cashier will scan the barcodes of the items you’ve bought and will deactivate the security device of certain items (like clothes, CDs, DVDs, etc.).

Sometimes the cash register runs out of register tape, which means the cashier can’t print out receipts. In this case the cashier has to insert a new one. It may take some minutes. When all your items are registered, the cashier tells you how much you’ll have to pay. She or he may also ask how you would like to pay (in cash or by bank card/credit card). If the shop has loyalty card programmes the cashier will ask you whether you have one so that you can get discounts or collects points. If you don’t have any shopping bags with you, you may purchase some at the checkout, but they are usually not for free, the cashier will charge a small amount for them.
