    Posted: 26 May 2013 at 9:36pm

Hi,

We are staying in Agios Stephanos and would like to do a big shop en route from the airport when we first arrive.

Can you suggest any large supermarkets en route from the airport, and approx how far out of Corfu town they are, which side of the road are they on, near any landmarks eg a hotel so we can easily find them?

Thanks

The easiest to get to would be A&B at Kondokali, on the left, the next would be Dielas at Gouvia, also on the left. Lidl on the left on the dual carriage way before Kondokali is a possibility, but confusing to get to from that direction if unfamiliar with the road.
There are a couple of Dimitra Markets in town but I can't think how to describe how to find them, it depends what route you are using out of the airport.

We find Dielas in Gouvia to be the cheapest one with a large selection of stuff to choose from.
On the dual carriageway heading to Gouvia it is on the left so look out for a 2 storey green building on your left at a junction. Its got big signs so easy to spot.
You need to turn left just in front of the shop and the car park is at the rear.

Hi Paulaf, you have the same idea as us, we are picking car up at airport and wanting to stock up before arriving at accommodation.

Got some great instructions from this site about large supermarkets.

I always find the small local shops quite expensive so hoping to load car up with provisions prior to arriving at our accommodation.

Lidl sounds like home from home for the basics and way I look at it if we save a few euros stocking up means we have more to spend eating out an giving the Greek people our money especially in this economic climate.

Hi. We have been going to Stefanos for many years, and although the local shops may be a bit dearer we find the service and welcome worth the extra. Don't forget, these shops are mostly owned by local families who need our support, whereas the likes of Lidl are owned by multinational companies.

I also agree with AvlakiJohn and we try to give the local shops our business. Maybe we are lucky in that in these local shops in Agios Georgios are not particularly over-priced.

I agree. We tend to bring some stuff with us that can be particularly expensive such as coffee (the foil refill packs that you can now get are good for saving weight) and toiletries, but look forward to our first shop. There are several supermarkets that are convenient to San Stef that deliver, but we always dump the bags, maybe unpack a bit and then head up to Nikos Supermarket on the main road to Kassiopi where we always get a great welcome from Nikos, Lea and Maria.
