Shopping is an activity in which a customer browses the available goods or services presented by one or more retailers with the intent to purchase a suitable selection of them. In some contexts it may be considered a leisure activity as well as an economic one.
- Shopping, true feminine felicity !
- Letitia Elizabeth Landon, Romance and Reality, (1831) Volume I, Chapter 5
- Ah, human felicity ! to have at once so many wants suggested and supplied ! Wretched Grecian daughters! miserable Roman matrons ! to whom shopping was an unknown pleasure, what did, what could employ them ?
- Letitia Elizabeth Landon, Romance and Reality, (1831) Volume I, Chapter 10
