Shopping

Shopping in Luxembourg can be very different to the experience that you might be used to. You might find a store that you love and never go anywhere else, or you might end up going to several different ones because one store does not have everything that you need. One piece of advice when you’re getting started: have a list of the items that you are looking for and translate them in at least one language (French would be best!).



Grocery Stores


Auchan

This store is a French hypermarche, which means that it is a big grocery store mixed with household items and clothing as well as electronics and garden supplies. What is great about this store is that the cashiers often speak more than one language, and you know which ones by the small flags hanging from their station. Languages include English, French, Luxembourgish, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. The products are mostly French, but you can also find some German, Luxembourgish, British, American, Spanish and kosher and halal foods.

Cactus

This store is a typical Luxembourgish store. The official language is Luxembourgish, but employees also speak French and German, sometimes English and other languages as well. Much of their products are in Luxembourgish, French and German. This is also a hypermarche. There are several Cactus and Hobbi (the non-grocery goods) stores throughout Luxembourg.
