Shopping centres, supermarkets, bazaars, large avenues... Long live shopping!
Options for all tastes
The culture of shopping centres is slowly taking hold in Algiers, but there is still a way to go before it reaches the same level as in Western cities. As well as those mentioned above, there are other large centres such as the Zemzem Shopping Centre or the Taiba Shopping Centre, enormous buildings that are full of fashion boutiques. However, many locals still prefer to go to the street bazaars or the traditional supermarkets like UNO or Ardis, which offer most services at more affordable prices. Other main avenues that are full of shops, such as Hassiba Ben Bouali, complete the broad range of shopping options that make Algiers not only the political capital of the country but also the nation’s largest trading area. Shopping fans can rest assured: in Algiers, you can shop till you drop.
