Supermarkets have been mushrooming in Phnom Penh city, the heart of Cambodia in the last few years. Nowadays, you can find supermarkets everywhere you go, which will provide you your wanted products. Due to the fact that Cambodia signed up to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2004, Cambodia has been flooded with imported-goods, therefore it is convenient for both locals and foreigners to find whatever products they want.

It is understandable that nowadays as the people’s living standards rise, the need for modern retail, such as supermarkets, is increasing. Some people would like to go to local markets due to the fact that the price of food and products are more affordable than supermarkets.
However, some prefer to go to supermarkets since supermarkets provide good quality fruits, meats, and vegetables that are standardly stored and imported products that are needed in daily life. Additionally, you do not have to worry about the parking space since most of the supermarket in Phnom Penh offers parking space which can accommodate a lot of vehicles.
