Just another new supermarket?

Post by Dusak » Fri Jan 04, 2019 5:09 pm

Supermarkets over here are nothing new, literally on every street corner, coming in all sizes. A new one must open every month. We here in Karnak are about to get a new one, just round the corner from my home and by the looks of it, should be open in a couple of weeks. Had a glance into it the other night while the lights were on as they busily stocked the shelves, the shop itself is around half the size of 40's. Looked immaculately clean, all the shelves were also very well light. So whats new? This supermarket is, or so I'm told, a new joint venture between Egypt and China. So will it have new and exciting stock, no more dust laden, and at times out of date stock? Only the opening will tell, so I'll keep you updated when it is open.

A couple of real Chinese takeaways wouldn't go amiss..... 8)

Probably stacked with Chinese seconds or sub standard things that go boom in the night. I did not think 40's was too bad, my bug barer was trying to find the price tag that matched the product. Cleanliness will help Dusak people love to see clean places especially outlets that sell food.

Well, what an absolute bummer that turned out to be, same same as any other supermarket with the exception they sell the big white frozen fish that I like. And their prices are a tad up on the other local shops. :(

Another over hyped supermarket rather like the "Grand".

Look on FB- Pork, Sausages &Bacon, Luxor and Hurghada. Its a closed group, just apply to join. Two deliveries per month, pay on delivery, West bank for pick up. Prices are good.
