Even retailers that sell many similar products are often different from each other in several key ways. Consider the following descriptions and specify which one best describes each retailer by selecting the correct option from the drop down menu.

1.Trader Joe's offers many organic food choices, healthy food prepared on site, a high quality fresh meat market, and extensive wine selections.It has smaller, upscale stores in major U.S. markets, but is not likely to be found in rural areas of the country. It costs more than major grocery stores and primarily sells food-related items.

2.Sam's Club has stores primarily in major markets. While they are owned by Walmart, there are far fewer Sam's Clubs than Walmarts. Pricing is low because product is sold in bulk. If you can't use 24 hot dog buns before they go stale, this isn't the store for you. Stores are huge and not only sell groceries, but refrigerators, televisions, and more.

3.Vons, QFC, and Safeway are traditional grocery stores that can be found in just about every town. These large stores carry a wide selection of foods and household products. They also often carry an assortment of books, magazines, DVDs, and many stores have pharmacies. Prices are very competitive.

4.Need a soda and a lottery ticket? How about batteries for your headphones before heading to the airport? Maybe you need some snacks for your road trip. 7-Eleven stores are in almost every town and near every major highway, in addition, they are small to facilitate purchasing what you need so you can rapidly return to the road.
