Some grocers specialize in the foods of certain countries or regions, such as Chinese, Italian, Middle Eastern, Indian, Russian, or Polish. These stores are known in the U. S. as ethnic markets and may also serve as gathering places for immigrants. Definition The definition of a 'grocery store' varies, and U. S. and Canadian official definitions of 'grocery store' exclude some businesses that sell groceries, such as convenience stores. = United States =In the United States, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a grocery store as 'a store that sells food and household supplies : supermarket'.
