150. Superstore

For the past month Mark King had been flyers in the mail about a new superstore was opening up in his neighborhood. The flyers him. He had never heard the term superstore . Later on, he found out that a superstore a large retail store that sells a variety products, usually at discount prices. Sometimes superstores are called big box stores. Many times they are stores owned by one company.

The flyers all different messages about the superstore opening. One set flyers invited him and others to apply for at the store. The jobs paid well and offered some benefits. Mark thought this was a thing since he knew many people were looking work. Another set of flyers included coupons to used on opening day. The store had many for common items like paper towels, but also big screen televisions. Mark thought this too was good thing. It seemed like a good idea be able to get a variety of things one place instead of going from one store another. It would save time and money. Superstores sell groceries and clothes under one roof.

Another of flyers contradicted the positive messages about the though. Some local residents were organizing a protest the superstore. The flyers said that the superstore bad for the community because it threatened the of smaller stores in the area. Mark thought Mr. Hernandez who owned a small grocery store the block . That was where Mark bought food items like eggs and milk. He didn't Mr. Hernandez's store to be closed, but he wanted to save money.
