Many Eastern European cities seem to be fighting a losing battle with those dastardly plastic signs that leap out from every shop front. We're pleased to say that Vilnius's Old Town bucks the trend here.
The city may not be able to match Milan or Madrid as a shopping emporium, but there are some superb national treasures to look out for. Ladies will love the linen and amber - for news of these and many more intriguing goodies, have a surf through our shopping pages.
Perfect service. Recommend
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.
I was delighted when I saw what a wide range of fresh and not too expensive products MAXIMA offers!
Simple and nice. Keep going guys! :)
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.
I really like a chocolate from this shop :)
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.
Its okay place.
