Okay, so taking that Sainsburys and Waitrose are a little more up-market than Tescos, I guess you would want Tengelmann, or possibly Rewe as your main supermarket, but basically the best thing to do is simply take a good look around your part of town and those you pass through, and see which supermarket is more convenient for you to shop at.

Of course, you will also find aldi and Lidl here, if you like their products.

As for Boots, well, you really need to differentiate between a dispensing chemist and a drugstore - for example, DM and Müller are similar to Superdrug, but fi you need a prescription filled, they cannot help you - you would need to go to an Apopotheke, of which there are generally no chains.

I hope this helps, and welcome to Germany!

wonderful,  thanks so much. I'm looking for cosmetics, shampoo etc so the Superdrug one sounds great! I've found all the high end shops that sell high end cosmetics, just need a cheaper version!!

 

We will be living in St Johannis so will keep an eye out for those supermarkets. Thanks for your help!! ?
