傢樂福海口 Haikou Carrefour
Though it is not on the main Carrefour website, it seems that Carrefour has been open in Haikou for a few weeks now. It is located at 海府路16號 or thereabouts.
I was there today, and was pleased with the overall selection. However, I did not come across any organic fruits or vegetables like I could get in Kunming. That might be because there were so many people in the store, it was hard to get around, but it could also be because there just aren’t any organic fruits or vegetables.
The prices were decent, but not great. Haikou still needs more competition. It also needs some better quality products. I bought a bike pump. It proceeded to break when I was pumping up my bike tires. So now not only do I have low tire pressure, I have no tire pressure. So I can’t ride back to buy a different model bike pump. Guess I will go for the 39RMB model next time instead of the 10.5RMB model I bought. Though 10RMB at a Kunming Carrefour was enough to get a bike pump that outlasted all three bikes I had in Kunming.
Also, good thing I got a bike custom-made at a bike shop in Haikou. The bikes in this Carrefour were tiny! None bigger than an 18-inch frame. Would have been useful if I happened to live here when I was 8 years old…
