The Grand Market. Has anyone tried it? How does it compare to the others?

Never heard of a supermarket of that name, but the locals sometimes refer to the shopping Mall in Station street as The Grand shop. This is basically a cloths and what have you complex of shops, no food up to a month ago. It will be interesting to see if a new one has opened, but doubt very much if the goods or prices will be any better than the rest.
Life is your's to do with as you wish- do not let other's try to control it for you. Count Dusak- 1345.

Did you zoom in to see the writing and maybe recognise landmarks? I assume the U-shaped building with the comma-shaped pool is a hotel.

I wondered if it was the Etab/p/e too because of the Cornich Road which seems to turn at that junction.

Exactly! I have never been able to keep up with hotel name changes in Luxor.

Go past the Emilio hotel towards Karnak and turn right down the third street after the hotel, should be ‘Amoun’ street, looks to be somewhere near the next road junction.
Yes that hotel with the shaped pool is the Etab/Etap/Mercure Corallia. :up

When I first read the [lost in translation] address I did wonder if it was somewhere behind the St. Mary Coptic church. From the information now given I can see that it must be close to where the Good Samaritan Children and Old Peoples Home used to be. Does anyone know if that is still functioning as I've lost contact and there was plans for them to move at one point.

But with no bridge over the Sphinx Avenue it is a long trek from the Etap.

Grand Market well what a surprise, nothing grand about it. On two floors of what appears to be two small converted flats. No where near as big as Ragab or KZ. Give it a miss!

Thanks for making the effort, carrie. I'd guessed from the photos it was quite small, but it looked clean and well-stocked. I'd also taken it as a given the name would be the usual exaggeration. :lol: Thought it might have some stock different to elsewhere to make it worth an occasional visit.

If it is a conversion of two flats that may well be good enough reason to avoid shopping there. So many of the buildings that collapse seem to have been 'conversions' were no thought has been put into strengthening and supporting load bearing walls.
