Carrefour is one of the most cost-effective spots to get groceries from. The French superstore has great deals, variety and lower cost on products. That makes it one of the best places to shop and save. Carrefour is not only great for groceries, but also because it stocks many other lower-budget items including clothes, accessories, electronics and appliances. Located all over the Middle East, you can easily choose from the smaller Carrefour Markets and Carrefour Express’s to the larger superstores in the city’s malls. Make sure you pay attention to the Carrefour generic store brand products, which are actually amazing and quite a bit cheaper than the higher end items.
