A: Hi !

Great question!

The use of the article in these sentences (i.e. "a" or "the") is always used among native English speakers from my experience as a native speaker myself.

As to use which one (i.e. the indefinite or the definite), we would more often than not use the definite "the" for all of these contexts. They are talking about the concept or the idea of the place, an identity of a type of location. However, we could use an "a" if we want to talk about a specific location of a type (i.e. one supermarket among multiple supermarkets to choose from).

Hope that helps!
Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? she said the supermarket (?opens/opened) at 10 a.m. what should I use,if the information is up-to-date?I'm confused becouse of my English book's explaination according to which we shouldn't only use past tenses when talking about "general truth and facts"
A: opens = "general truth and facts", AND if we are speaking at a time when the supermarket is closed.

opened = use from 10am until until the supermarket closes. To create more confusion, you could sometimes use this if the supermarket is closed, depending on the context.

I know my answer is a little unclear, but I wanted to try and answer since no one has replied yet.

I don't fully understand this question "what should I use,if the information is up-to-date?", can you rephrase that?
