I'm just looking.這是一個很好的回答，如果你不確定你想要買什麼東西，對於別人詢問你：「Can I help you find anything?」。
Where are your fitting rooms?如果你想要在購買這套衣服前先試穿，可以和售貨員詢問這個問題。不過在英國，你就會想這樣詢問changing rooms。

I'd like a gift receipt for this.依照你的要求，大部分商店提供一張沒有商品價格的gift receipt，這麼做的原因是，萬一你的朋友覺得你送的禮物不適合，他們可以到商店換其他東西或者退掉這樣東西也沒有問題。但是，如果他們不這麼做，就永遠不會知道你花了多少錢買這個禮物的心意！

Whether it's the perfect gift for someone special or something for yourself, here is a list of useful expressions to help you find just what you're looking for as you stroll through the malls and check out chic boutiques.
I'm just looking. This is a great response to "Can I help you find anything?" if you are not sure what you want to buy.
Where are your fitting rooms? Ask the salesperson this question if you want to try on that outfit before you buy it. In the UK, though, you might want to ask for the changing rooms.
Does this come in other colors? Not everybody likes plain old black and white. Ask a salesperson this if you've found something you really like, but want it in a different color.
Do you have this in other sizes? You've found the perfect holiday outfit... if only they had your size! Ask this to a shop assistant, and he or she may be able to locate one that's the perfect fit.
Do you have any of these in stock? You see it in the display, but you can't find it in the store! Don't panic. Ask an assistant if there are any left in stock. Maybe there are some hiding in the storage room.
Can I put this on hold? Not sure if you've found the perfect gift? Just ask the sales assistants to "put it on hold", and they will put the item aside for you for one or two days. That way, it can't disappear as you continue your search.
I'd like a gift receipt for this. Upon your request, most stores provide a gift receipt, which does not list any prices. So, just in case your friend decides that gift of yours isn't so perfect after all, he or she can exchange or return it without a problem. But, if not, they'll never know how much you paid!
Can I get a price check for this? Can't find a price tag on the item you're looking at? Ask the cashier this question, and he or she will check the price for you.
What's your return policy? Before you buy that gift, make sure you know whether or not it can be returned or exchanged by asking the cashier this question.
Do you provide gift-wrapping? No time to wrap your gifts? No worries! Many stores provide gift-wrapping services to their customers, especially during the busy holiday season.
