Emporium

[em-pawr-ee-uh-m] (n.) store offering a wide selection of goods.

* From the Greek, emporion, meaning “trading place or market.”

“The neighborly market I used to cruise for new produce looks forbiddingly like a Manhattan yuppie emporium.” 

~brought to you by Dr. Rapoport’s former Reading 110 student,
Nancy Parra
