The short story “A&P” was a very good story. The story was set inside a small grocery store near the beach. The main characters were three young girls, a young male cashier, and a store manager. The girls came into the store just as they were dressed for the beach. The male cashier really admired one of the girls. When the girls came to the register the manager began to scold them for what they were wearing. The cashier did not like how the girls were treated. So he quit his job to impress them, but they were already gone.
