Supermarket prices in Qatar on average are the same as back home. So no need to pack teabags in your suitcase.

Supermarkets in Qatar are very similar to those found elsewhere in the world. There are some major brand retailers like Carrefour and Lulu as well as local brands like Al Meera. They all have similar pricing and similar products. You can save money by shopping around, but people tend to settle on their favourite and just stick to that.

We have put this section together to try and give you a feel for the kind of prices you will find in supermarkets here in Qatar. It’s not kept up to date, and the images provided are simply samples taken from whatever supermarket we were in at the time. But it will give you a good idea.

Bathroom

With bathroom products some brands use different product names and sizes for the same item. For instance in the UK there is ‘Colgate Total Whitening Toothpaste 75ml’ and in Qatar there is ‘Colgate Total Pro Whitening Toothpaste 75ml’. In the UK ‘Head And Shoulders Classic Clean Shampoo’ comes in a 500ml bottle, whereas here in Qatar it comes in a 600ml bottle.  Where quantity varies we keep the UK price the same and adjust the Qatar price to match the same quantity/volume.

If you forgot to pack sunblock, there is nothing to worry about. It’s readily available here in Qatar. But perhaps a little more pricey than back home.

Available in nearly all pharmacies and large supermarkets, a decent sunblock will cost around QAR 57 (GBP 11, USD 15, EUR 13, 818 Peso).  And please, please, please make sure you put it on. Or your vacation may be a painful one.

In the Philippines you will find a Jollibee on every street corner. And now they are expanding all over the world to wherever there is a high population density of Filipino families.

With their offerings of burgers and fried chicken meals that have a distinct Filipino twist, they bring to Qatar a real taste of home to thousands of overseas workers and their families from the Philippines.

These days Mc Donald’s and KFC have started to appear everywhere in the Philippines as well. But Jollibee is still by far the favorite taste for Filipinos. As demonstrated in the above image where there is a big cue for Jollibee and just one person standing at Mc Donald’s.

Personally I am not a Jollibee fan. I prefer Mc Donald’s burgers and KFC chicken. I can eat Jollibee, but if there is an alternative close by, I will take the alternative. However Filipinos can’t get enough of Jollibee and they will walk past other brands to go to Jollibee.

I think this is the 3rd branch to open in Doha, and I’m sure it will do very well indeed. The food court in Dar Al Salam is always very busy, and Jollibee is a great addition for those seeking a taste of home.
