Convenience store in Japanese is コンビニエンス ストア (kombiniensu sutowa) but since it is too long, they cut it short which became コンビニ (combini)

Convenience stores have become more well, convenient because you can do almost everything without having to go to the city to run errands.

You can now pay your water and electric bills in the “combini,” photocopy and send fax, buy concert tickets, and they even have home delivery service.

So without further ado, here are the vocabularies that will come in handy the next time you visit the “combini.”

1. コピー (kopee)

Photocopy
