Shopping for groceries is on everyone’s daily, weekly, or monthly chore list – depending on how you plan and prep your meals, of course. This bazaarite tends to do a big shop weekly and mini visits on a daily basis, and I’m clearly not one of those super planners. Preferring to prep my food as I go along, Saveco has been my saving grace. With two large locations – one in Qurain and the other in Al-Rai – and a Wholesome Foods by Saveco concept located in Salmiya, food shopping has never been easier! There’s always a location nearby for when inspiration strikes – or the fridge is bordering on empty.
As a Salmiya dweller, the Wholesome Foods by Saveco concept is perfect! Specializing in organic, natural produce and frozen foods as well as diet-friendly and protein fortified foods, Wholesome Foods by Saveco is the perfect go-to when looking for specialist items. As you walk around the beautiful store you won’t spot any of the usual overly-sugary suspects. Instead, you’ll find healthier versions of your favorite guilty-pleasures! Spread over two floors, you’ll be able to find everything you need for your house and more. There’s absolutely no need to hunt for an organic corner as the entire establishment is dedicated to organic foods. You can even get some of your favorite household supplies from napkins and tissues to detergents! If you’re feeling a little hungry while shopping, stop by their Fatayer stand and pick up a freshly prepared wrap to your liking. Or better yet, why not grab a seat at their café and enjoy a cup of tea with a light meal? Accessible from the lower level, you can enjoy pristine views of the Gulf for an unforgettable experience.
As someone that had studied in the UK, Tesco’s Finest products are coveted treats that are constantly sought out. Lucky for all of us Tesco fans, Saveco stocks not only their teas, biscuits and canned goods, but you can also get their frozen foods! But that’s not all you can get from Tesco at Saveco. You can also find Tesco’s laundry detergents, dish soaps and even basic first-aid items! With so many of their household items being hauled in from the UK, you can surely find items you know and love to use around the house at any of Saveco’s locations, and they are merchandized on to their respective shelves throughout the stores.
Perhaps one of the most compelling reasons I visit Saveco are the savings deals I can get with every shop over the weekends and on Mondays, making their price-points simply unbeatable! Special pricing and offers are always available at all the Saveco locations every Monday and every single weekend making for an experience, and awesome bargains, that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. At both the Al-Rai and the Qurain locations, you can enjoy isles of fresh produce, a butcher, fishmongers, a deli and all other groceries. As with the Wholesome Foods by Saveco concept, you can enjoy a light meal at the café at the larger Saveco locations as well after you’ve stocked up on the best bargain deals.
But that’s not all, Saveco offers everyone a chance to learn how to create certain dishes and the opportunity to experiment with ingredients you’ve never used with their dedicated Food Academy. A huge success at the Al-Rai location, the Food Academy has a home at the Qurain location as well. You can simply figure out what class is being taught at either location and make your way there for a day of fun. And while the Al-Rai location is a true super market, selling everything from clothing, home-ware and groceries, the Qurain location offers even more goods. With an extensive range of products, you can leave your children at the play area there while you do the shopping!
Practical and fun, Saveco is a shopping experience you won’t want to miss out on!
