There are few aspects of life that have been more radically changed since 1945 than the way we shop. This lesson traces the evolution of the supermarket from the old time general stores that ran on the farmers'yearly credit cycle through the beginning of cash and carry stores and the development of the modern supermarket. Who would have thought that the nesting shopping cart could transform so many lives?
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also several pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading and flowchart.
