    • Specialty stores Small convenience stores or corner stores carry basic necessities and are usually conveniently located in residential areas.

Different stores charge different prices for food, clothing, and other things you need to live. You may want to ask your relatives, friends, or coworkers where they shop for good prices. There are also special services or stores in many communities where you can find different items for free or a low price. Store hours vary. Some are open Monday through Friday, some six or seven days a week. The eight days per year on which most stores must close are: New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
