Reviews of Shopping in Vilnius
I was shocked how rude and xenophobic the staff in this place is. I know that many of the Eastern European ex-communistic countries are very racist, especially the people over 40 something are like this. But it is always shocking to be confronted with uneducated staff like that. In Western countries people which treat customers like that, would never get jobs. But in Lithuania, Bulgaria, Hungary and also Poland you can act like this. Very sad, and very embarrassing for the countries. They should leave European Union if they prefer to be xenophobic, antisemitic and homophobic. And Maxima should stop telling lies ont heir website, that customers are most important for them, and that they treat them with respect and friendliness. Big lie. If you like I can male videos how they teat people that don´t speak the local language, or are coloured. It reminds me of the deepest communist times. Disgusting. These older ex-communist people are full of frustration and hate. Maybe therefore everybody looks so grey and unhappy in these countries. When you know Skandinavian or Southern countries it is like a different planet. In Bulgaria so many young people agreed with me about this rude unfriendly older citizens. And everybody told me they want to leave the country because of this. I fully understand. I pray everyday that the borders will be open again, and I can go back to friendly, openminded, edcuated and cosmopolitan people.
If you find this products not expensive, you hae never been in German supermarkets. But I know Poland is very expensive, maybe therefore youa re used to this overprized products.
I was delighted when I saw what a wide range of fresh and not too expensive products MAXIMA offers!
I am very happy with the linen dress I bought from this store while in Vilnius and would consider buying another online. I've had many compliments regarding this dress. The store staff were very helpful and approachable.
Last time when in Vilnius a visit to Maxima was a delightful experience. We have lived totally over 60 years in US and close to Los Angeles the last 30 years. Here I have not seen such a store with great selection of good fresh food, smoked meats, fish and all types of bakery products.
I walked in the store and introduced myself as an American, I was raised my Lithuanian parents, speak a tiny bit but understand 80% of the language. I went to look at a child's sweater and as soon as I touched it fell off the plastic hanger. Then two women starting watching everything I was doing. The one who put the sweater back on the hanger made rude comments about Americans. This is the most unfriendly store employees I have encountered in Lithuania. I wanted a handmade doll for my granddaughter, I asked if the had any and they showed me only one spot,but when I went to the back of the store they had more they weren't willing to show me, very unfriendly and has a bad attitude about Americans.
Aš esu Škotijos vaikinas su lietuviu žmona, gyvenančia Lietuvoje. Mano ausys kraujuoja klausydamiesi jos skundžiasi apie baisią šalto produkteo kokybę, kurią ką tik turėjo pirmoji (ir paskutinė) "Judex" kompanija. Jis buvo įsigytas Elektrenu”Maxima” ir manote, kad tai turėtų būti "tiesiog kaip pas motina". Tiesą sakant, jei tai būtų kaip mėsos gaminimas, būtų geriau pasiimti ją lauke ir šaudyti. "Mamos Cepelinai" - aš rekomenduoju tik tuo atveju, jei bulvių sriubą norite supjaustyti su plūduriuojančiais mėsos gabalais arba jei per daug girtas per daug atsargiai. I am a Scottish guy with a Lithuanian wife living in Lithuania. My ears are bleeding from listening to her complaining about the terrible quality of the frozen product that we just had for the first (and last) time from a company called, “Judex”. It was bought in Elektrena Maxima, and from the packaging it implies it will be, "just like your mother made." In fact, if it was industrially produced rubbish. "Mother Cepelin" - I recommend it only if you want to eat potato soup with floating pieces of meat, or are too drunk too care.
Has almost everything you could need (except for electrical plugs - strange omission) and the opening hours can't be any friendlier. Highly recommended.
Maybe products in Vilnius are fresh as I can read on other reviews, but do not go to Maxima in Klaipeda - meat colored with kidney blood, terrible quality and the vegetables 2. or 3. class - what rest of Europe will not eat :/ Sorry about the bad review, but its unfortunately the truth!
Everywhere is just like everywhere else. Soon everywhere will be called 'The Mall', you'll have to go online to check where you live. Like most tourists I had to rely on public transport/ taxis so info on how to reach the Akropolis by bus should be easier to find (53 or 062 from the Bus Station, next to the Railway Station). I would say it compares favorably to Malls in the UK. I've been to Meadowhall (139,355m²) a few times. Meadowhall has 12,000 parking spaces so the 3,200 at the Akropolis may soon prove to be inadequate as you really need a car to visit. Meadowhall Interchange (bus, train and tram) is a couple of minutes away, it's also just a few minutes away from the M1; but it is the only UK Mall with these transport links (apart from the tram network, these links were already in place). Sheffield and Vilnius both have populations of about 550,000 and local catchment areas of around 800,000 to about one million so apart from the recession, with good management both should have a bright future.
fantastic and great value everything you need in one store just like tesco
Maxima ist klasse! Hat tolle Angebote und ist sehr preisgünstig. Wir kaufen gerne ein dort - man bekommt alles! Auch wenn man gerade Hunger hat und aus Klaipede kommt nach einer langen Tour mit dem Fahrrad oder Auto!!! Ich war überrascht über das reichhaltige Angebot dort - wie in Deutschland.
Anyone give me some idea of how extensive the English-language part of the bookshop is?
Lost my son for a few hours in this place, he loved it.
thought this was for a car rental but bet my girl would like this place while i get a pint
A wonderful shop. Try the Marzipan with Hazelnut and some sort of caramel chips. Truly delicious.
I went to this shop and they had loads of delicious chocs. Lovely little shop!
biggest shoppin center in eastern europe is in poland but i'm looking forward to see akropolis, afterwards i will be able to do small comparison :-D
Maxima was a life safer in Vilnius! They had everything. Fresh produce, international brands and some good Lithuanian food. Whenever we didn't have money for eating out Maxima came to the rescue. Kinda even missing it now i'm gone!
