What is Dubai's best value supermarket?
What’s On teams up with ‘good‘ for an ultimate price comparison for supermarkets in Dubai including Geant, Waitrose, Carrefour, Spinneys, Choithrams, Co-Up.
Grocery shopping is expensive, there’s no getting away from it. But with the help of some friends we’re trying to lighten the load. Every month, the team from ‘good‘ compare the price of everyday items at UAE supermarkets. A year on from the magazine’s launch, we bring you those same products from June 2013 to not only see what each supermarket is charging, but to find any increases (or decreases) over the last year.
All non-perishable items have been donated to UAE charities. To nominate a worthy cause, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
