Spinneys at The Mall, Doha, Qatar

We were able to visit Spinneys at The Mall for the first time today and it’s a good change of atmosphere for those who got used to buying grocery items at the usual Hypermarkets like Lulu, Giant and Carrefour. For those not in the know, Spinneys is  a high-end supermarket retailer in the Middle East and North Africa with stores in Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and the UAE. They first opened their stores in Doha last August 2010 in replacement of the Megamart that lost the bidding war in The Mall. Of course, since it’s not a “hypermarket”, the space it occupies isn’t nearly comparable to Lulu and Carrefour. However, what is boasts is the quality of the products and the number of products not similar to those offered by Lulu and Carrefour (scroll down to the photos to see what I mean). As a result though, you also pay a premium for the availability of these products.

Overall, it’s good that shoppers in Doha have another option and may find items that were not readily available in Doha before, now being brought by Spinneys. A lot are actually European brands so expect to see more Europeans flocking Spinneys. Its clean shelves are always re-stacked, with a number of employees available for help.

wish they have pork 🙁 veggies and fruits at spinneys are so expensive and the choices are limited. it’s not even much better than those sold at other supermarkets. i suspect, they are sourced from the same supplier.
