[By Byung Hwa Yoo, mart, Seoul, Korea]
Yesterday I dropped in Hanaro mart, Changdong branch to buy grocery. Big markets such as E Mart, Homeplus, Costco Wholesale, or else close on 2nd and 4th Sundays to help small markets and merchants. But the Hanaro mart is discluded though it's big enough to be included in the list of closing marts for the reason of that it sells agricultural goods mostly. So the closing marts complain about that.
It was near noon. I took a seat at the snack corner having some snack food and sketched this one with pencil during eating time. People come and go but the seller keeps her position providing free taste to customers. Some companies who provide goods to the mart send their detailers to sell more on busy time of weekends. Tasting samples is funny but it makes us spend extra money and add weight too.
