carolyn: albert and i need a lot of things to
furnish our house. but i don't know where the best place to shop is. can you
give me some advice?
stephanie: sure, carolyn. i'm happy to help
you. what kinds of things do you need right now?
carolyn: well, we have most of the furniture
already. we mostly need kitchen utensils, bathroom accessories, cleaning and
laundry accessories–things like that. and albert wants to set up a little
office in the small bedroom.
stephanie: well, as for albert, he should go

carolyn: how much is the membership
stephanie: i'm not sure. but if you are only
