    In the Morrison Store, students act as pretend shoppers and clerks.  Shoppers get a shopping list and a budget.  Clerks get the items of the shelves for the shoppers and add up the total sale price.  Students learn about the types of items that were available in a general store 100 years ago and compare the store to how we shop for our groceries today.
