Buenos Aires - - Friday 18 De September

Home People As we are I'm coming. I'm going to Chinese.

I'm coming. I'm going to Chinese.

Going to Chinese is part of our life and is a fundamental factor in our shopping routines. It's right there. Close, in every way.

As we are

Every time I go to the Chinese I notice that gradually the smiles and happy greetings are increasing. What used to be a “hello”, dry and pure courtesy, today is a “how are you?”  sincere and happy . Yesterday I went to buy something I needed and the Chinese was outperforming in sympathy. From the box, while serving other clients, he shouted a “Hello, friend!”. That I felt so frank that he gave me a smile.

The Chinese supermarket, the Chinese market, the Chinese super - the Chinese. Easier. No one needs to be clarified when  a company defines a whole commercial activity .  Chinese is part of our life  and is a fundamental factor in our shopping routines.

If I forgot to buy something, I go to the Chinese. If I feel like pancakes on a Sunday at 6:00 in the afternoon. Or if I'm cooking and I realize I'm missing an ingredient. Chinese opens more hours, more days a week and, in general, is the option that comes closer.

But just as we adopted them and everything that comes within, at the  same time the Chinese adopted us . Far away were those who pretended not to understand our language and exchanged the change for candy. Little by little, these immigrants from so far away lands and so different customs were creating bonds. They learned the necessary words. They relaxed in our ways. In other words, they  became Argentinean .
