Best Shopping in London-Supermarkets in London

A grocery store is a store that retails food; and the owner of the grocery store is called a grocer. Normally, grocery stores stock an extensive assortment of food products from fruits and vegetables, through dry food items to a variety of packaged food products. Large grocery stores that also stock other products such as clothing or housing items are known as supermarkets. Small grocery stores engaged solely in the sale of fruits and vegetables are known as greengrocers in Britain; while small grocery stores that largely sell snack foods and sandwiches are referred to as convenient stores or delicatessens.
Grocery sales in London and the rest of the UK are dominated by four high-value supermarket chains including Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury and Morrison’s. These "big four" had a combined market share of 76.2 percent of the UK grocery market in the 12 weeks ending 17 February 2013.

Marks and Spencer, Booths and Waitrose constitute the supermarket luxury ceiling of London and the UK. Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury and Morrison’s cater for the value market; meanwhile Sainsbury's and Morrison's are midmarket chains.
In additional to supermarkets, there are also multi-purpose shopping venues in London, such as Harrods shopping centre.               

Harrods is London’s prominent department store, housed by a magnificent building.
A majority of visitors to London pay a visit to this opulent department store, with its wide selection of luxurious goods. In fact, a considerable portion of the store’s sales are from foreign visitors. Upon leaving, the store often offers customers a signature green bag.
Harrods is one of the world's most famous store and one of London's tourist attractions. The store stocks a compelling and wide assortment of luxury goods that are on display in a magnificently decorated building.
The success of Harrods attracted a number of other entrepreneurs to Knightsbridge, resulting in an upscale shopping district. Nearby are luxury stores such as Harvey Nichols and Burberry. Sloane Street, one of the most famous shopping streets in London, is just around the corner.

In London equally, you would find specialty stores that stock grocer items from specific regions of the world, for instance, Asian stores, Afro-Caribbean stores etc.
