He has to walk one block till the supermarket. Paul has got a shopping list. There are several items for today. They are cereal, some fruits and vegetables, a carton of milk and a bottle of juice. Paul has to buy some canned food for his cat as well. The supermarket is not large so Paul finds everything he wants to buy rather fast. The aisles with the food from his shopping list are located near to each other. After Paul has got all in his shopping cart he goes to the cash desk. He pays with cash. The cashier gives his change to him. Another employee at the cash helps him put all the foods into the paper bags.
