10. Fill in some, any.

Shopping for groceries isn’t like it used to be. In the past, if you wanted to buy … bread, you had to go to the bakery. If you wanted to buy … meat, you had to go to a butcher shop. A baker didn’t sell … meat and the butcher didn’t sell … bread. Of course, there still … bakeries and butcher shops that sell only baked goods or meat, but most of them have been replaced by supermarkets.

In the past when you went into a butcher shop, you would see sawdust on the floor. You don’t see that … more. You would even see the butcher cutting up your special order. That also isn’t seen … more. Now the meat is wrapped in plastic, weighed, priced, and put on display in a refrigerated counter. If you want something special, you can still talk to the butcher, but you have to ring a bell so he or she will come out from behind the glass walls. It certainly isn’t like it once was. If you wanted … bones for your dog, the butcher was happy to give you … - free! They don’t do it … more, … butchers won’t give you … bones at all; … others will only sell them to you!

Also in the past, if you wanted to buy … coffee, it was ground for you right in the store. This isn’t usually possible … more. You can still get specially ground coffee, but only in special coffee shops in large cities.

In the small towns there used to be what are now called “country stores”. These used to be the only stores in town and you could buy many different things but, unlike in today’s supermarkets, there wasn’t a wide selection to choose from. In … country stores you could sit around the wood stove or the cracker barrel and talk with your neighbors. You can’t do that in … of the supermarkets today. There aren’t … cracker barrels and there isn’t … need for wood stoves. Although there are … country stores that are still open in a few small villages in rural states, large supermarket chains are rapidly replacing them. These supermarkets may make shopping more convenient than before, but there are … disadvantages too. While … supermarkets stay open twenty-four hours a day and they offer a wide choice of different products, few seem to care about friendliness … more, and there isn’t … of the personal service that existed in the past. Most people don’t seem to have … time now to shop leisurely, but personally I wish there were still a country store in my home town.
