SHOPPING CENTRES

In many old cities in Europe, there are narrow twisting roads with many shops huddling together along the two sides. These commercial places are not so modern and convenient as those called shopping centres in modern cities, especially in the suburbs of the big cities in the United States.

Shopping centres have developed rapidly because of the shift of the population to the suburbs, the growing use of and dependence upon the automobile and the heavy traffic in downtown areas.

A shopping centre is a large group of stores facing a huge central mall which may be covered , heated and air conditioned. A shopping centre is also surrounded by a parking area with space for thousands of cars.

We can buy all kinds of food and get anything we need in a shopping centre. Unlike a supermarket where groceries are chiefly sold, a shopping centre provides us with all services besides food. We can get our hair cut, eyes examined, clothes washed; we can book our tickets for a world tour and even enroll in special classes.

C/ there are few people moving from the downtown areas to the neighbouring regions.

D/ the streets in the downtown areas are so narrow and twisting.

24) Customers can’t find the “sense of closeness” in a modern shopping centre because …

A/ all the items in the stores are very expensive
