Fucking Aldi and Lidl taking our retail space!
Spar is a normal and fairly respectable supermarket in most of Europe
Spar is not a normal and fairly respectable supermarket in this country
well almost, it was more about how quite a lot of people (including me) think that's only a local shop.
a chilled chocolate bar made of cheese curd wrapped in chocolate. I didn't believe her until I went in one and found shelves and shelves of them, and people grabbing fistfuls to put in their their trolley:
(I tried one, it was quite nice).
and print the price tags?
they know what fruit it is automatically
'Have you weighed this apple'?
Not really sure what else I can bring to this thread.
what's all that about?
It's fucking shit though, make no mistake.
It's hard to have a gaytime on your own!
Ghostface killahs? Something like that.
No nice Belgian crisps?
Monster munch indeed.
Really cracking value.
4 isles of olives and a bargain bin full of stereolab albums for 50p.
what a romantic setting
(you must respect the culture of marckee)
lots of little mini breads, ones that look hard as a rock, and ones with SUGAR sprinkled on them where you'd expect flour to be. Get serious
in search of a better supermarket
takes up about 3/4 of the rear of the shop, massive amount of choice, 1/3 price of the UK
Bit offensive mate
No? ok then
Albert Heijn = Tesco
Aldi = Aldi
Attent = Spar
C1000 = Sainsbury's
Coop = Co-op
EMTÉ = Waitrose
Jumbo = Asda
LIDL = LIDL
Plus = Morrisions
Troefmarkt = Costcutter
You'd never catch Tesco turning down the chance for some foreign cash
Internationally recognised debit and credit cards are largely useless, instead they have their own card, called iDeal.
c1000 was expensive and shit
Not sure how I feel about it
such a caring, humanising brand name.
Give me Albert Heijn any day
when his Centra supermarket expanded to almost 1000 sq meters.
Or the Germ Emporium
Super de Boer = Somerfield.
Dirk is run by a different company, who also own Bas Van Der Heijden and Digros. All three = Iceland.
it wasnt even a big shop, like a tesco metro size. Think it was a carrefour express or something
they come wrapped in that tough plastic like with kids toys, its impossible to get off. you gotta get scissors and chop into it.
Bizarre and intriguing flavours of soup ("Secretes de ma Grande Mere").
they're the only places where the air-con actually works.
oh cool, they sell fanta limon.
Don't mind if I do.
Biscuits or chocolate usually.
"Super gross mi knackiger schokolade"
they have entire refrigerated rooms
Have I entered the year 2237?
I thought it was only once you were in the club they started gouging and profiteering
Best: E Leclerc
Cos where I was in France last month, E Leclerc was by far the best, super U was near the bottom
Though tbh if you live in a city in france you should probably just buy all your non-perishable stuff at lidl then get all your veg and meat or whatever at the market.
Doing your shopping with a hot coffee in your hand is a bit of a challenge, but hey, free coffee.
Being able to rent those European beer bottle plastic crates <3
With a Migros two doors down. All closed by 7 at night. Quite civilised really.
It's better than beautiful.
and Sweden have chocolate bars called "Plopp"
it was almost exactly like the one in Elephant and Castle (but no 99p shop)
