how do i get over my fear of going into jewish shops due to gender segregation rules

i dont mean this in a culturally offensive way as what i describe is not something i am used to.

as most observent jews will know men and women are usually segregated which i something i am not used. i was walking past my local kosher deli intending to go in there to get my morning coffee and there were girls in there and there were advertisments on the window stating the hours for when men and women should shop, whihc meant that in the end i didnt go in out of fear of cultural offense

how do i get over this phobia and what should i do i wanted to go in and would like to use it more but if there are girls in there i dont go in out of fear of offending people

It looks like Kiryas Yoel...

More seriously, I have never seen such thing you describe, even not in Williamsburgh, neither in Meah Shearim...
