CAROLYN: Albert and I need a lot of things to furnish our house.

But I don't know where the best place to shop is. Can you give me some advice?

STEPHANIE: Sure, Carolyn. I'm happy to help you.

What kinds of things do you need right now?

CAROLYN: Well, we have most of the furniture already.

We mostly need kitchen utensils, bathroom accessories,

cleaning and laundry accessories--things like that.

And Albert wants to set up a little office in the small bedroom.

STEPHANIE: Well, as for Albert, he should go to an office supply store.

There's a very good one called Office Depot. They have everything he will need.

And their prices are good too. It's very convenient.

CAROLYN: Can I write that down?

STEPHANIE: Sure, it's spelled "Office" and then D - E - P - O - T.

It's in the Yellow Pages.

CAROLYN: Thanks.

STEPHANIE: And as for the kitchen things, do you want very high quality?

CAROLYN: What do you mean?

STEPHANIE: I mean, do you want the best quality, or do you want good prices?

CAROLYN: Probably good prices. You know we will only be in America for about a year.

STEPHANIE: Then I suggest you go to K-Mart or Wal-Mart.

CAROLYN: What are those stores?

STEPHANIE: They are very large, discount department stores.

That means their prices are very good.

And you can find everything you need for the kitchen or bathroom.

CAROLYN: Even silverware?

STEPHANIE: Yes, everything.

They don't have the most expensive brands, but their quality is usually decent.

The main thing is, they have good prices, and they are very convenient.

CAROLYN: I have a friend that said something about a place called Price Club.

Do you know about that?

STEPHANIE: I have never shopped there,

but I think Price Club is a kind of membership store.

CAROLYN: What does that mean?

STEPHANIE: That means you have to pay a membership fee to shop there.

I have heard they have very good prices on electronics.

CAROLYN: Electronics?

STEPHANIE: Yes. Like stereos and televisions.

CAROLYN: How much is the membership fee?

STEPHANIE: I'm not sure.

But if you are only going to stay a year, I don't think Price Club is good to join.

They have great deals occasionally.

They are very good for people who like to buy new things all the time.

CAROLYN: I see. Thanks for these tips. We really need to buy a lot of little things.

STEPHANIE: I know how it is. Moving is very troublesome.

凯洛琳:艾博特和我需要很多东西装潢家里。

我不知道去什么地方买好,你可以给我一些建议吗?

史蒂芬妮:当然可以,我很乐意帮忙。

你目前需要什么东西?

凯洛琳:大部分的家具我们都有了。

我们主要需要厨房用具,浴室用的,

清洁和洗衣之类的用品。

而且艾博特想在小的卧室里弄一个小办公室。

史蒂芬妮:对艾博特来说,他应该去办公室用品店。

有一家不错的店叫"帝伯办公用品",在那儿有他需要的每样东西。

而且价格也公道,很方便的。

凯洛琳:我可以写下来吗?

史蒂芬妮:当然,拼成 OFFICE,然后 D-E-P-O-T 。

在电话簿里有。

凯洛琳:谢谢。

史蒂芬妮:至于厨具,你要很高级的吗?

凯洛琳:什么意思?

史蒂芬妮:我是指你要很高级的还是便宜的?

凯洛琳:便宜的好了,我们大概只在美国待一年。

史蒂芬妮:那我建议你去凯马特,或沃尔玛。

凯洛琳:那些是什么店?

史蒂芬妮:是很大又有折扣的百货商店,

价格很便宜。

你可以找到你需要的每样厨房和浴室用品。

凯洛琳:连银器都有吗?

史蒂芬妮:是的,每样都有。

虽然不是最贵的品牌,但是材质通常都很好。

最主要的是价格便宜,而且购买方便。

凯洛琳:我有个朋友提到一个地方叫"优待价俱乐部"。

你知道那里吗?

史蒂芬妮:我没去那逛过,

不过我想那是会员俱乐部。

凯洛琳:怎么说呢?

史蒂芬妮:你必须缴交会费才能在那儿消费。

我听说他们的电器用品很便宜。

凯洛琳:电器用品?

史蒂芬妮:是的,像是音响和电视。

凯洛琳:会费是多少呢?

史蒂芬妮:我不确定。

不过如果你只待一年,加入俱乐部并不划算。

有时他们会有很棒的促销。

对那些总是想买新产品的人而言是划算的。

凯洛琳:我懂了,谢谢你的建议。我们真的需要买很多琐碎的东西。

史蒂芬妮:我了解,搬家是很麻烦的。
