How do you usually get your groceries?

I usually buy them at Ozeki grocery store.
The store has almost whatever we want with valuable price and fresh.
Especially, sliced raw fish is good.

自然な表現

I usually buy them at Ozeki grocery store.
The store has almost whatever we want at reasonable prices and fresh.
Especially, sliced raw fish is good there.

1. The correct preposition to indicate the price or cost of something.
2. A more suitable word in this case, saying that those prices perfectly match the quality of the goods (that you are not overpaying).
3. Plural is more appropriate here, for talking about all those prices.
4. To be more specific, "at that store".
I see. So how often do you go grocery shopping? Is there a supermarket or an Ozeki grocery store near where you live?

I go grocery shopping twice a week.
Yes, there are those near my living.

自然な表現

I go grocery shopping twice a week.
Yes, there are those near my house.

1. I assume this is what you meant, perhaps you wanted to say "near my place of living" (place of residence), but that sounds too formal for this context.
I see. What else do you usually buy besides fresh raw fish? Do you usually drive there or take the subway?

I usually buy fresh raw meet too.
No, I don’t drive there and take the subway. I usually go there on foot.

自然な表現

I usually buy fresh raw meat too.
No, I don’t drive there or take the subway. I usually go there on foot.

1. Spelling mistake.
2. The correct conjunction to say that you don't do either of those things.
Oh, that's lucky. I have many convenience stores around me but the closest supermarket is one station away. It sounds like you cook, is that right? Are you a member of the supermarket?

Yes, I like cooking.
Yes, I have the point member cards some of supermarkets near my house.

自然な表現

Yes, I like cooking.
Yes, I have the membership cards of some   supermarkets near my house.

1. The common expression for the cards in loyalty programs (cards with which you collect certain points with each transaction at a certain store).
2. A preposition is needed to indicate to whom those cards belong.
3. "Of" goes after "some" when followed by an article or a pronoun.
Brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing about your favorite place for grocery shopping. Which city do you live in, by the way?

I live in Shinagawa, Tokyo.
It's very convenient town near the Shinkansen station and close to the Haneda international airport.

自然な表現

I live in Shinagawa, Tokyo.
It's a very convenient town near the Shinkansen station and close to the Haneda international airport.

1. The indefinite article since it is only one of many possible such (convenient) towns and not a specific one.
