Anyone recognize this sign?

Yep, you guessed it . Lider is the Chilean Wal-Mart. Lots of Great Value products though priced slightly higher than at home. You park underground and take the escalator up.

When you reach the top there is a courtyard with a café and some small shops.
Smaller than your average super center they still have a small variety of clothes and household goods.
A deli, a bakery with great breads in wooden bins and a nice produce selection. The clerks weigh and price everything for you before you get to the cashier.

The selection was good but organic products and imported American products are very expensive. $7 for a small bottle of Heinz organic ketchup. Overall prices are comparable to SC.
One weird thing is that so many products we buy in jars are in bags here- mayo, ketchup, tomato sauce, & jam. But the worst is milk in boxes unrefrigerated. yuck! and they don't refrigerate eggs either which doesn't seem to be a problem.

It will take a little adjustments to our normal routine but I think we can get used to it as most of our  meals are made from scratch with the basic staples though I was really puzzled by the flour selections as I couldn't read the labels very well!
Please post a comment if you have any questions! God Bless


  1. Milk - non refrigerated? Is it powdered? (yikes!) Brian was asking about the pricing on the signs. What is the conversion rate?

    Sorry for the late reply as we had no internet when you posted this.

    The milk is pasturized and sealed not powdered since it is sterile it lasts almost forever.

    Lori will have to give you the break down on the pricing.
