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.
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.
