What are the items that I should bring with me because they’re not available (or are too expensive) where I am going?
If you have medication that must be taken on a regular basis, you should take them with you. You won't be familiar with medical care practitioners right away, so will not be able to replace them.
Will anyone have particular trouble finding clothes that fit?
There are malls and stores that will afford you the opportunity to shop with ease.
What grocery stores do expats in your city shop at?
Expats, like the locals, shop at whichever store has the product they are looking for. Some products (pork, shellfish and alcohol) are restricted in this country so expats shop at the stores that can provide the items they want.
Some stores you'll see are Carrefour, Azizia Panda and Farm Superstore.
Where can other household items (such as cleaning materials and home furnishings) be found?
There are many stores (in and outside of malls) that will supply all your daily needs. It depends on your budget, proximity to your location and taste.
What are factors that might affect my shopping habits in this country/city?
Your budget, work schedule and location will determine your routine in your new home.
