You do not have to worry about this kind of stuff now. You'll get everything around in nearby Al Meera or in some of the relatively large stores.

Most compounds don't And as to the best shops....everyone has their own tastes and reasons. You have asked alot of questions lately which I hope have been answered, but do try to use the search button. There was a survey a while back on favourite shops. You'll get alot mre answers with 'search'

Welcome in June (be ready for the heat!!)

Xpy, if you like dogs, there is a group here that does volunteer stuff with rescue dogs, walks, grooms etc and have heard theysuffer during the summer months for volunteers as alot of people go away. check www.qatarpets.org (search for it here too, there is a link somewhere;-?) And maybe you can meet others to swap recipes? lol

The best one is shoprite. Some compounds do have grocery stores, but others dont.

Depends what you are looking for. My friends go to different groceries for different stuff - some things can be found in some shops but not in the others

Just check the expiry date on the goods prior to purchase.

If you go into it knowing you can't find everything at one shop, it will save you tons of frustration. Stocked shelves are hard to come by. Some of the bigger ones are Carrefour (sort of like a Walmart), Giant, Al Meera, Megamart and Shoprite (carry lots of western items but very pricey), Lulu's and Family Food Center. You'll probably have a small one near your house that you'll like as well. If you find something you like -- buy in bulk!

when i go do grocery shopping i go to 3-4 stores to get everything that i need, like helenann says coz one store is good for some and some are good for other stuff.....and one more thing when i see i stock up on it coz sometimes it'll be ages till ya see it again . all thru experience and then ya'll get the hang of it. today i went to 4 stores but still cant find my fav mayo with garlic - it goes so well with my fries.......anyone seen mayo garlic anywhere lately?>

I go to Mega Mart for special stuff that it has and no one other does, but the general stuff I go the the Meera corporation.

The problem with Doha is that while you can get designer clothes, designer shoes, designer handbags, designer luggage, up-market cars etc etc, there isn't actually much in the way of up-market western food. Megamart at Landmark had the best selection but they closed it and replaced it with a yet another Carrefour. My friends tell me that they spend less at Carrefour than they would have spent in Megamart. Well, so do I because at Carrefour they don't stock half the things on my shopping list. I've been shopping at Al Meera since Megamart closed. I try to avoid Carrefour if possible.

Have you past by the Mega Mart in the Center???

yea I hate carrefour.
I shop between Mega Mart and Al Meera

Where is Al Meera? I've never been there!

dozens of al meera in various areas. muntaza, al hilal, abu hamour etc.

few compounds have thier own stores but there are small stores near almost all compound which deliver stuff at your door, but their prices are higher than the big supermarkets.

There is a large Al Meera near Rainbow roundabout. I use a smaller one across from the zoo. There are others around town too.

visit al meera.. i havent been there

Megamart at The Centre is much smaller than the old store at Landmark and it doesn't carry as much stock. Have you been in there on a Friday morning? You can't move. They need to be opening more branches, not closing them down.

Skanky, cut the guy some slack : )

In my opinion, the best stores for groceries are Giant Stores, QMart, Mega Mart and Family Food Centre.
