One day my friend wanted to go shopping. I took him to the State Department Store - GUM. GUM is a huge multiple store. One can get there anything in the way of food and manufactured goods. Besides one can have made to order shoes, coats, frocks, suits and hats. One may also have his photo taken right there. Fashion shows are very often on (held) here. In a word - GUM is a wonderful place.
When we arrived at GUM we first admired the window dressing. Then we went along the first line and looked into the shop-windows of the grocery. We could see all kinds of foodstuffs: meat, fowl, fish, tinned food, sausage, bread, fruit, wine, all kinds of grouts and a hundred and one other foodstuffs.
Next we went along the second line. Here there were on sale: haberdashery, stationery, hosiery and leather-ware.
In the third line we could buy all kinds of household utensils: pots and pans, cutlery, crockery, electric appliances, refrigerators, vacuum-cleaners, cameras, radio and television sets and many other things one may want in the house.
We went into the perfumeries, florist shops and gift and souvenir shops.
The second floor was where we were going to do some real shopping. There one can get everything in the way of clothes wanted by man, woman, or child: footwear, knitwear, ready-made clothes, furs and what not.
Coloured posters delighting little children announced the sale of different things for children, and toys.
We bought a number of things. After paying our money at the cashdesk we were given receipts. We produced our receipts and obtained our purchases.
