Reviews of Shopping in Sofia
I go to Sofia where my fiancé lives quite frequently and go to Billa quite allot, I think a branch here in England would be very successful !
I shop at Billa on a regular basis,for me the choice is limitd,a lot of the vegatables I think have passed there sell-buy date,no Lamb and no shell fish..they dont cater for Italians or English....heho...happy days..!!!
Easy layout, wide aisles, good selection and wide variety of wines and beers at competitive prices.Kardzhali store.
As a foreigner in Bulgaria i am quite pleased with the selection of goods on offer at the local Billa store in Plovdiv it may not be as wide a selection as to what i am used to but big enough to supply me with everything i may need. Granted very little English is spoken but i am comfortable enough to buy hot meals and other groceries there without the need of a local to help me out. It would certainly help if they do employ more staff with a better command of the English language.
Staff doesn't speak English. Rejected my two Premier Visas, my Gold American Express, and my Euros cash. ATM in store was out of service so couldn't get Leva cash. This store is a disaster, and the cashier was of no help at all.
Lovely little shop:)
Compared to supermarkets in the UK, France, Germany etc, Billa (in Bulgaria at least) is poor..Poor quality meat, average selection, overpriced considering its Bulgaria one of the poorest countries in europe and the staff service isn't great either...
Some bargains to be had here but you have to go hunting! Luckily this my favourite pastime, well worth a visit
Good selection of world foods, too.
I found some useful art supplies here.
Found some great stuff here, and the prices were good
Nice to see that the art of calligraphy is alive and well in Sofia!
"For Bulgarian people it looks flash" is talking out of the back of his head! I have lived my entire life in 'the west' - Mr Bricolage is up there with the best of them - keep up the fantastic work and service! (but what are your working hours?)
For bulgarian people it looks flash, but when compared even to the cheapest Wicks is rubbish. If you want to buy something, the chances that the item is in stock are very slim. The customer service is not good, and most of the personell are incompetent.
The relentless march of capitalism! DIY makeover TV programmes! Don't you just love it!
Well, my girl has recently become obsessed with street clothes, so I ended up kickin it here for like an hour. She liked it a lot - so that's good. Waiting around while she tried on everything eight times, on the other hand - definitely not sweet...
