Hypermarkets & Supermarkets

Prices between different brands of supermarket can vary quite dramatically, while the quality of some items like fruit and vegetables can be equally varied; this means it can pay to visit a couple of different supermarkets to get the best balance of quality and price when completing the grocery run.

For a one-stop shop for almost anything you can think of, hypermarkets are the place to go. With a range that goes far beyond food, most sell a variety of electronics and home appliances at competitive prices, as well as toys, homewares, luggage, clothes, shoes, music and DVDs and much, much more.

Unlike hypermarkets, supermarkets concentrate solely on food and domestic necessities such as cleaning products and toiletries. They all tend to have their own kitchens that cook up freshly baked goods, with some larger stores offering quite an impressive range of pies, samosas and pasties. Some even have fish and meat counters for you to peruse. Carrefour Market (with various locations) is a more condensed and less frantic version of the hypermarket.
