Edee store
posted by Bihari Babu
This post is the result of quiz competition held for Salmiya residents. Majority of the residents say its Edee store. Its true and let me share my experiences.

Be alert when you are paying at the counter for vegetables. For leafy vegetables the cost is calculated on no. of bundles rather then on weight. Suppose you buy 2 bundles of coriander and due to rush hours the persons at the counter feels the plastic bag from outside to know how many bundles are in the bag. He may punch 3 instead of 2. Also the scanning is done at a very fast pace and you will not even know what is he punching. I have noticed this modus operandi and now I handover the leafy vegetables at the last myself. When you have finished the payment, go out of the shop and tally the bill with the price stickers pasted on the veg. bags. The price of leafy vegetables will be at the bottom of the bill and thus easy to tally. Edee is very expert in charging extra 50 or 100 fills in case you are not alert

1) Meera shikakai powder, last year, it was 750 fils, after 6 months, 950 fils, now it is 1 kd.
but, in india, it is same rate.

when you buy ponni rice, 2.500 kd for 5 kg. if you buy 3 bags, then not allowed. it is 3 kd per bag, because rate changed yesterday. but, rate is marked in bag as 2.500 kd. but, you are buying bulk, so it is 3.000 kd for hotels like you.

coriander leaves 1kg, 300 fils (like that approximately). another person, will weight same coriander leaves for 650 fils, for all indian vegetables. because, he dont know the rate.

i prefer to buy from super markets. because i will get proper bill and can tally after.

in bakalas they are using manual machine for billing. there might be typing mistake by intentional or unintentional. more over we will not know what price they put for the particular items

have nice day..

Also, check the expiry date. They sell expired items by scratching off the expiry dates :(
