In those days there was a special discount store, Shekem, which had a supermarket and department store including electrical appliances. Soldiers' families got coupons to use there, and considering that in 1974, my husband's army "salary" was the same as an 18 year old got to buy a bit of nosh, we needed that discount.
1974 was also decades before discount shopping stores, like Rami Levy had come to Israel. There also were hardly any supermarkets. Most shopping was in a small, local grocery store and the shuk, open market for those who could get to one.

This one came with a small "coffee bean grinder" which my husband uses for grating the horseradish root for the most powerful "chrain" you can ever imagine. I use it for making kugels and "Savta brei."
