In at store versus at a store

I īd use "shop at" for all of the above. I think "shop in" is perhaps more colloquial and I know that sometimes we do say, "I shop in a fruit shop for bananas." although, i am not sure it īs actually grammatically correct. I kind of wonder if it īs a direct translation that has entered the language from Latin based languages and become commonplace. (Just my opinion! lol)
