Task 17

1. In the early days of retailing, all products generally were fetched by an assistant from shelves behind the merchant's counter while customers waited in front of the counter and indicated the items they wanted.

2. The shopping process was slow, as the number of customers who could be attended to at one time was limited by the number of staff employed in the store.

3. The concept of a self-service grocery store was developed by American entrepreneur Clarence Saunders and his Piggly Wiggly stores.

4. Most foods and merchandise are individually wrapped in consumer-sized packages by producers or the supermarket assistants.

5. The first supermarket self-checkout system in the world was installed in 1992 in the Price Chopper Supermarkets in Clifton Park, New York
