In the story of A&P Sammy, a young teenager (assumed in the story), works as a cashier in A&P, a supermarket. It is mainly narrated by the first person narrator which was Sammy. In the opening of the story he describes one lady that is giving him a hard time while he is ringing up her groceries. One day three girls walk in clad in skimpy bathing suits which capture the attention of everyone in the market, including the manager who reprimands them for such clothes. Since the store was empty he just stared at the girls walk around in their bathing suit. In the story, there are many types of literary techniques which are evident. However, the three that stand out among the rest are the foreshadowing implemented by the author and narrator, the irony in the resolution, and symbolisms in the short story.
