Hi everyone! I have never liked shopping. I hate when people do it slowly and do a closer look at products. I mean, it's kind of boring, isn't it? Let’s be honest, mostly our girlfriends love shopping, also they can do it every day and we always have to endure it. =(
When I was a child my mother very often took me with her on the shopping. I never liked to try on a lot of clothes, shoes and etcetera.
But my mother begged me to try on something a hundred times a day! I definitely can’t stand shopping.
Nowadays, If I go to the shopping I always know what I want and I don’t waste my time on the closer look at products. So, you know, I haven’t any favourite markets or department stores, I don’t like shopping centers. Unfortunately, I have never been in London. But someday when I will be there, I’ll exceptionally visit these places.

Hello,
I don´t like to buy at internet because I don´t like have been waiting for the parcel and even worse in our "poor" country , the order can take up to four months to reach me could be worse sometimes they just lost your order or stolen it .
But I really like to go shopping , could be shopping center or small market it is fun for me ,I think I am materialist and I know I have to change my mind .

I don't like shopping especially Saturdays it's to, busy and so is Christmas time, I only go shopping when I need something.

Hello
Personally I do not like much shopping, only if I need some clothes or shoes and I usually go with my wife or my little daughter to advise me, since they are better stylists and they like buying a lot. But if I like to walk through the street markets where I can distract myself seeing the sellers attract potential customers, as well as the colors of the sales points

In my neighbourhood in Japan, there are a lot of supermarkets and convenience stores, but they are all the same and boring. I prefer individual small groceries and shops, because they know a lot about their goods to sell and kind to customers. However, unfotunately, such small shops are disappearing as big shoppin malls provide things at cheaper prices. I stubbornly keep on buying things at small individual stores!

I don't like shopping. I prefer street shooping or market. In London I like to go to Borough Market or Portobelo Road but my wife prefer Oxford Street.

Hello

I love shopping everywhere, but the problem is money. In stores, you need a much money than in a flea market or something like this.
I love Rastro in Madrid, because is my town, but it was wonderful to buy in Petticot Lane in London or Khan El Khalili in Cairo

Hello...
I´m Titor, I´m from México. Here there are a lot of places where you can shoopings. for example there are elegant stores like "Palacio de Hierro" where the rich people go to shopping; in the other hand exist "Tepito" this is an huge informal market, where you can shopping whatever you want, the most of the things are piracy or stolen things. Here dosen´t come rich people.
So it depends what you want.

Hi dear, I really like this conversation it makes me wanting to learn much in English.
