School is about to start! Oh wait, it’s not out yet?
But you know that the summer is going to fly by, and then it’s going to be a mad dash for school supplies. I love the BX, but it never quite has all the things we need, or the quantity of things we need, especially for procrastinators such as myself.
Recently, I stopped by Carrefour out by the M1 Mall. I had not been to Carrefour in a few months, and I had forgotten how many great it was. It reminds me of a Walmart, which was strangely a little refreshing. And it was stocked full of school supplies!
Actually, it was stocked with a lot of things – school supplies, household goods, party supplies, food, electronics.
For school supplies, the prices were comparable to those in the States. Some items were a little more than I would expect to pay, but with the current exchange rate, I would pay it, especially if I did not want to wait on an Amazon order or for the BX to get more in stock.
I was really excited to see all of the party supplies and baking supplies. I had forgotten how much they had, and with an upcoming birthday for my son, I will be making a return trip soon.
You could plan to spend a lot of time at Carrefour. Aside from the store itself, there is basically a mini-mall in the complex with stores like LC Waikiki, Burger King, and a Home-Depot type store.
