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.
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.
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.
史蒂芬妮：当然，拼成 OFFICE，然后 D-E-P-O-T 。
