I prefer hypermarkets. Why? Because serviseis on the same lever in them and hypermarkets are cheaper. I only go to supermarkets when I'm near by and I need to buy something but even then I prefer local stores with some nice people to talk to;P

Well you are right products are more cheaper than those in small markets.Pompon do you have hypermarkets in your country? Some of myloters haven't heard the term and that is because this term is not use in their country.

Yes I'd also like to know what a hypermarket is. I'm from the US and I've never heard of the term so in that case I guess I'd prefer a supermarket ( I call them grocery stores). There are about five supermarkets within a three-five mile radious of my house and I shop at all of them. I shop at Safeway, Foodland, Times Supermarket, and Don Quixote.

Hum....I don't know what a hypermarket is. I go shopping early in the morning while the kids are at school and there are mostly old people like me there and none of us are hyper LOL. Anyway, I live in the middle of nowhere and the closest store is 26 miles. I go shopping to Sam's Club once a month and to WalMart once a month and that's totally it. I know, I'm boring........what can I say, I hate to shop.

Maybe this term is only in my country.Hypermarkets are the biggest stores there are here.I think is similar with the supermarkets from your country.Big stores where you find everything.

I prefer hypermarket as there are more options there. And it is a exciting place to go on weekend when we have enough time to go shopping in the hypermarket with so many different items on the racks. That is the better place I love to go for shopping with my partner.

My wife neither goes to supermarket or hypermarket. She just goes to nearby BUY-N-SAVE market which is a medium size store, but more than 10% off on MRP.She goes once in a week to do shopping and my son accompanies her. They have a facility of door delivery of the materials.

I prefer hypermarket, and I usually spend a whole day shopping! I like to find a variety of products and spend time choosing what looks, smells, or works better. On the contrary in supermarkets you find 2 or 3 kinds of the same product and that's it. Additionally, it is really small and you can't wonder around in the halls since it's not convenient.

I actually didn't knwo what was the differnet,but I read on of your comment and I know now.So I prefer hypermarket for grocery, becuase everything is together and whne I need some pills and napkins and fruit, everything is togther, that is what i like.But for clothes i liek much more supermarket, becuase in big store, I just cannot shopping, it is just so crowded with clothes and it is like one big mess.
