With stores across Barcelona, this large store chain sells all kinds of groceries as well as electronics, bedding, shoes, clothes and so on. It is mid-priced (cheaper than the rest of the EU and about medium for Spain), although if you snag a membership card, you become eligible for great discounts and in-store promotions. Also, having a membership card allows for free delivery of groceries to the home. Caprabo also allows its customers to place on-line orders for home delivery, which is extremely helpful when you don’t have the time or will to go out and deal with the crowd at the supermarket.
Carrefour supermarket chain also have locations across Barcelona with food, technology, home, travel and telecommunication sections. Online shopping facility and store card available. Costs are on par with Caprabo.
