To Market, To Market
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Imagine that you are living in the year 1900. Your grandmother has asked you to accompany her to the grocery store. What will you see when you get there? Will you see a big building surrounded by a gigantic parking lot? No, you will see a small store, probably on a street in town.
 
2     Will the doors automatically open when you approach them? No, you will have to turn the doorknob on a wooden door. When you push the door open, you will hear a tinkling bell announcing to the owner that he has a customer.
 
3     Will you pick a shopping cart when you walk in? No, your grandmother has brought along a basket. You will carry the groceries home in the basket. There is no need to push a cart through the long aisles. There are no aisles. There is a counter near the front of the store. The groceries are lined up on shelves behind the counter.
 
4     How do you buy your groceries? Your grandmother walks to the counter. A young man behind the counter says, "Good morning. What can I get for you today?"
 
5     Your grandmother hands the young man a list. She has written down all of the dry food supplies that she needs. The young man takes the list and heads to the shelves. He picks up the items on the list and brings them back to the counter. When the list has been completed, your grandmother pays the young man. Together, you put the items into your grandmother's basket and head for home.
