The new LuLu Hypermarket in Qurain (like grain) is my new favorite place to shop. It's 3 stories and filled with all kinds of American products. They have baked goods and cakes that are really good. It's located in Qurain area which I think is exit 208 and you take that straight down to a roundabout and it's off to the left. I've always known about LuLu Hypermarket (funny name) but the old locations were not real clean and extrememly crowded but this place is beautiful.
They have electronics, furniture, clothing and of course food items. I like to be able to shop for everything in one place. It's clean and well lit. There is always someone around if you have questions. The only thing I found negative was the meat. They don't have family packs of meat, only individual pieces, I guess I will still have to go to Sultan Center for meat but overall I love it. I still haven't gone upstairs because I get too tired shopping. I usually spend 2 hours there.
There are many cashiers so the lines aren't too long and they are pretty quick to finish your transaction. I stop by the pretzel shop on my way out. When I start my diet I will have to pass it up. It gets crowded at night, I think the best time to go is in the morning or early afternoon. You will find the expats shopping then. Outside LuLu you will find a couple shops. The inside looks like the old Kuwaiti boats.
