Counter - is an integral part distinction of any shop.
Nominally all the shops can be divided into 2 types: counter trade and self-service
shop (mini-markets, supermarkets, hypermarkets etc.)
Counters are used in both types of shops but with
some distinction approaches. In counter trade shops, counters perform a function
of show case, where products are displayed and as storage place that easily
can be access by a shop assistant).
In self-service shops the counters are mostly used in separate sections of
supermarket functioning as a counter trades and till points. They perform
function of displaying units for small enumeration of here-and-now demand
products thus convenience to customers waiting to pay at the tills.
