I simply love to visit giant however not on weekends as it will most likely to be sooo crowded. Its like a treat to me, entering with an empty cart and nothing in mind to buy will usually end up at the cashiers with a cartful of weekly supply of drinks, snacks, toiletries, fruits and sometimes even furniture.
Matter of fact this hypermarket offers almost everything you need within the four walls of your hdb flat. Besides real fresh fruits and vegetables, the freshest you can find besides the wet market there is also a butchery where you can find all sorts of meat with pork sections carefully separated from the other type of meat and live seafood that comes with fish unscaling/ cleaning services.
If you like coffee, they also have a booth selling freshly ground kopitiam coffee powders, dried goods and every other kinds of seasoning, canned food,, and snacks, milk produces, various types of frozen food, instant processed food and even a very interesting honey product booth that sells my favourite honey sticks. If you like durian, theres a counter for that as well. The thing is the durian smell is not very strong in this fully air conditioned environment, it is pretty well-contained so the non-Durian lovers will find it still pleasant to shop at this hypermart.
Lifestyle products are also plenty. If you want to buy an aircon, a tv, hifi set, fan, bicycles, camping equipment, etc they have it all. They also have a few shelves dedicated for car owners. Matter of fact they also sell automobile engine oil...
No wonder i always emerge with a cartful of everything. They are definitely not the cheapest but i feel that the prices are reasonable and its a one stop for eveything. I havent even get started on the wine section. Though they dont have anything special but the price is reasonable for everyday drinking and there is a snack section next to the alcohol section where selected beer / alcohol snacks are placed to pair with your intoxicating drinks.
Going to giant is like going to the playground for me!
I get to touch and feel everything and buy anything i want, fiddle with that fish gills, poke the well packaged mince meat, choose from the large variety of instant noodles available, and there are just so many things to buy. Thought the payment queue might be tedious at times, its still a great place to shop for everyday everything.
Been there a few times. The place is gigantic. The aisles are arranged in systematically and the items easy to grab. It isn't too crowded on weekday evenings.
I found the cashier queue too long to wait. Even with the express checkout line, I see trolleys filled to the brim queuing up at the express checkout lines.
Not all the stuff sold are cheaper than other supermarkets either.
I don't really fancy going to this giant becos there are plenty of foreign workers who would crowd around the fruit section and eat "FREE" fruits such as logans, lychees.....
They probably do not have the intention of buying and so they eat eat and eat and dirty the place . I do not know why the management isn't doing anything about it. No staff around to monitor those kinda ppl? Terrible. I swear I won't go there during wkends.
