Last week we decided to do our monthly groceries from the new Lulu Hypermarket since they’ve got a chain in the Middle East and it has recently opened up here in Kuwait. It turned out to be better than my expectations and seems like an interesting mix of Sultan Center and City Center.
They have the regular supermarket stuff on the ground floor and the first floor has all sorts of other items (decorative, clothes, furniture, electronics, etc.). The quality is comparable to what you would find at Max, Sana, etc. but they have a much better variety (especially on kids-wear) and even better prices.
They even have their own branded grocery items (e.g. salt, bread and some other stuff) and they have placed them such that you would run into them before you see the more well-known brands; or that is what I felt anyhow.
I still don’t see what makes it a hypermarket or for that matter; what exactly is a hypermarket in the first place.
I would probably go there again.
