Grocery Shopping...

There are a couple of main hypermarkets in Penang namely Carrefour, Tesco, Giant, Jusco and Sunshine. Each of them tout themselves as being the cheapest among their competitors. Usually, they are cheaper for some items only. So it depends on what items you are looking for.   For example, recently Giant was selling the Campbell Canned Soup 300gm was going for $2.99 compared to >$4 from the rest.  Tesco recently have cheap sales for the J&J pH5.5 600ml Body Wash ~ $5, which normally retails at >$6.5.   My dad swears that Sunshine has always the cheapest Listerine Mouthwash. ( I have yet to compare prices).  Sales, I notice normally starts on Wednesdays, so that is preferred day for shopping before all the cheap items are out of stock at the end of week. Just bring your own bag since Monday to Wednesday is "No Plastic Bag" days.
