Lotte really has the lot

Lotte Mart is a typical supermarket chain that is very popular throughout Asia. The Lotte Mart in D.7 is a typically huge expanse kept clean & presentable with icy cool air conditioning. The shelves are well stocked & basically everything for ones domicile is available here. There is a huge range of foods from fruit & vegetables to dog food & a small section with imported goods.

Additionally, household electrical goods & clothing are available. I would advise against shopping for electrical goods here, 1 million VND & upwards for a toaster ($50) seems like an awful lot of bread for a relatively cheap item. Also, shopping for clothing can be frustrating as the sizes tend to be small (even for us regular sized westerners). Also contained in this gargantuan building is a Pizza Hut, a Lotteria (no surprise), a food court with a fairly diverse selection & a cinema.

In my view this is a great place for food shopping, the huge range makes it a formidable resource. My criticisms of Lotte are the over priced electrical goods & the fact that out of over 30 cashiers, only 12 were operating which led to long queues. In addition, a staff member had the impudence to say that the taking of pictures was not permitted. I ignored her, just as the security guards ignored me as seen in a picture.

Lotte Mart is well worth a visit, an ideal place for your grocery restocking. Three stars for Lotte Mart which funnily enough is the same number of over priced toasters here.
