When buying an apartment in Hurghada,

you have hundreds of questions, and one of them:

How much does food cost?

In this article we will help you to know the pricing policy.

The calculation is made at the average prices of supermarkets of Hurghada.

It’s more convenient and easier to buy food in large supermarkets, there are more assortments and lower prices. And most importantly, there are promotions and discounts.

Many large supermarkets were opened in different areas of the city. Such as Spinneys in Senzo Mall and Dahar, Carrefour in Mubarok 6 and Arabia, BestWay and Ragab Sons in Mubarok 2, Gomla on Sheraton, Metro and Abu Ashara in El Kauser and other areas.

In Egypt, like in many countries they sell bakery products by piece. However, there is an unpleasant feature here - the weight of the product is not always indicated on labels and price tags.

Most vegetables in supermarkets are sold by weight. You need pick up in a bag and weigh them on special scales. Important tip: since Egypt has a hot climate, choose only fruits without defects. Any small defect even the very next day can turn into a large "abscess", and it will have to be thrown away. In the Egyptian climate, most vegetables grow all year round. In supermarkets, prices for vegetables are almost unchanged throughout the year. That cannot be said about fruits.
