: You can get everything you want at one store.
At one time, you went to a baker for bread, a grocer for vegetables and a newsagent for a paper. Now all these, and many more products, are available from super/hyper markets. You can park at their edge-of-town sites and buy them all at one visit. Meanwhile, small shops and town centres - downtown areas - are dying.
