What are the items that I should bring with me because they’re not available (or are too expensive) where I am going?
You can find almost everything in Milan. As the fashion capital of Italy, Milan has an abundance of clothing stores in most shopping areas.
Will anyone have particular trouble finding clothes that fit?
Because clothing stores are so plentiful, you should have no problem finding your size.
What grocery stores do expats in your city shop at?
Expats most typically shop at big supermarkets or shopping malls.
Where can other household items (such as cleaning materials and home furnishings) be found?
Cleaning items and home furnishings can be found in all supermarkets and shopping centers.
What are factors that might affect my shopping habits in this country/city?
Depending on your neighborhood, fresh produce and flower markets are generally held once or twice a week. Big shopping centers are open from Monday to Saturday and on Sunday during some peak times for goods and gift shopping, such as right before Easter and Christmas.
