Turkish Language/ücretsiz keif

Question
Dear Hasan,

Recently from the bus, on the window of a shop selling spare parts for cars (or something similar), I saw a notice, I think in capital letters: ÜCRETSİZ KEŞİF.

Please, what does this refer to exactly and how is it best translated into English?

All the best, and many thanks,

Simon

Answer
Simon,

Ucret(siz) :: cost  (free for this case or without)
kesif      :: explore, look for
In other words, you are free to go in the shop and look for a part, without paying the fee for looking for .
I left Turkey way back so I do not know how the rules/customs are, but obviously some old parts stores in Turkey charge for looking for parts.

Feel free to ask if not clear....


Best wishes,  

Hasan
