Steve’s book, France in 1960s

sorry, I pressed ‘enter’ before entering text…
My question was:
In this sentence: “Fauchon, the great caterer and food store on the Place de la Madeleine”
Which is the difference between a caterer and a food store. I saw in the dictionary but to me they seemed almost the same thing.
Thanks

A caterer will usually “cater” a dinner or bring food to your house. A food store just sells food. Fauchon sells a lot of already made food, not just meat and vegetables etc.

Thanks!
