Which one do you prefer to shop at? Here is what I found out...

Carrefour - good onion bread
Auchan - looks like a food warehouse
LeClerc - cheap, good meat selection, onion bread...ok
Real - good candy selection, can be overpriced
Tesco - open 24/7 :) soft bread
Bomi - overpriced but nice international selection
Alma - same as Bomi
Lidl - same as Aldi
Biedronka - good deal on shrimp, only has candy and moldy fruit, overpriced same as Lidl

Real can be overpriced, but sometimes has very good offers. Heinz beans were about 3zl a can a few weeks ago.

Biedronka - good deal on shrimp, only has candy and moldy fruit, overpriced same as Lidl

biedronka is dirt cheap. i managed a meal for seven today for less than 20zl.

Look at who is behind them and you've got your answer.

Now would certainly be a wise time to buy shares.

What is with Bomi?

I haven't seen one for years.

Leclerc and Carrefour are still here. Piotr i Paweł became Spar (the Dutch version rather than the original British). There's Lidl, a few branches of Aldi too. The Coop (as in Społem) have several biggish shops in Warsaw, there are smaller local chains like Lewiatan however the biggest chain by far is Bedronka.

Bomi closed in about 2008 - so did the other luxury concept, Alma. Both overexpanded into smaller towns.

By number of stores Dino is now just behind Biedronka, but way behind in total sales.

Netto is still developing after buying the last few Tesco stores.

Dino

Doesn't ring any bells; is it a regional one?

Tesco stores

Those cheaper Tesco shops used to be Lider Price which belonged to Grant. Not bad for basic stuff.

There's also the Dealz food section which is very hit and miss, especially since brexit. Good for a few products though.

Do you remember Villa and Robert? Both were useless. I think Robert was bought out by Carrefour and I'm not sure what happened to Billa.

You need to get out of Warsaw :) Dino is massive in the Polish countryside. The owner is I think in the top 5 richest Poles now. Shops are not very nice but they have a presence even in villages of 1000-2000 people.

Billa was bought by Leclerc - long time ago, maybe 2010

Smoke starts coming out of my ears if I go more than a few miles from the end of the metro.

Seriously, I'll look out for Dino.

It's biedronka that have the market in Warsaw, that and Carrefour Express. A nice alternative is the coop. They've got big stores in Żoliborz, Marymont and Bielany.

Spar are quite posh. They bought Piotr i Paweł.

I like it, there is one not far from our village. It has one product which I can`t buy anywhere else: a tin of fried winter sprats. Delicious! I can eat the content with a spoon straight from the can like Nutella.

Which Netto do you mean? There are 2 of them, German and Danish. Danish has a doggy in the logo.

German and Danish.

I don't think the German one is in Poland... is it... nicer than it used to be? It used to be a bit depressing (worse than biedronka when it was bad) they didn't even try to look like a big box with a bunch of cheap crap piled in....

Yes, this one. I like black interior decor of Danish Netto stores coz it is pleasant and unassuming. German Lidl black interior decor feels depressive and oppressive. I don`t know why and how Danes do it. Lighting? The secret power of hygge???

The Netto in the picture is so nice, completely different to the Danish Netto in Germany that is chaotic.

Danish Netto in Germany that is chaotic.

they used to look pretty bad in Poland too, it felt like going to a ghetto (which is why I haven't been in one in many years) I should probably try again....
