How inconvenient for the locals as they will have to go an extra 500 feet to the nearest grocery store... :coffee1:

I missed the big sale. I used to shop there but there weren't many customers, that's why they got bankrupt.

 

Tops supermarket would be great but they haven't moved in yet.

They never went bankrupt, they own the whole market,they thought they could

do it themselves,but lacking knowledge in running a supermarket,and getting

off to a very bad start,by opening before been ready,they will have realized its

better collecting rents from Tops,

 

Tops is due to open sometime in November,more choice and will give RimPing

more competition which will be good for customers.

 

I bought quite a lot of products (with long sell by dates), which i would have to

buy in the future, with discounts of 30-50 and finally 70%,better than money in the bank.

Where did  you get the info that they own the market?

 

Their prices are not as competitive as Rimping Ruamchok, I used to compare prices at both places.

I don't have any definitive info, but I would have guessed the owner of Ruamchok Supermarket was the same owner as the entire market area because they use the same branding everywhere, seemed pretty obvious. My wife tells me the owners of the market are the Koolapunt (housing estates) family.

My wife knows the Lady that owns and runs the whole market,

The prices were never as good as RimPing,but were better near the end 30-70% discount,!

they won't be missed,but Tops will be welcome,as they have some different products that

RimPing does not carry,and competition is good for the consumer.

I would have preferred Big C because Big C prices are usually lower than Rimping next door.

Different range of products,and Big C is only 10 mins away,Tesco is the one

I rarely shop at,not as good as Big C,Tops or RimPing.,but buy the majority

of shopping at Makro.

TOPS is best for me: location, various foods, cost, etc.  I'm not much into imported foods and most of my fruits/veggies come from local markets and street vendors.  

Did notice yesterday that TOPS at KSK had local grown fresh dates on the pedicel.  Very delicious, long-keeping but rather expensive.  Surprised to find dates grown in CM province as i thought only arid regions supported date cultivation.

More here on dates, a very ancient human food:

Thousands of varieties of date palms, so someone found one that would fruit here.
