Discount Shopping for clothes and groceries. Buy and sell used things in Berlin- Cheap Shopping online in Germany

Updated on June 26, 2013

If you are planning to move to Germany or have recently moved to Germany, it is important to know the discount shopping centers in Germany. In several countries, many people avoid shopping at a discount store because they believe that they are rich enough to shop at a 'decent store'. In Germany you will be really surprised to see that people come to discount stores in Mercedes Benz, BMW and Porsche cars. Discount shops do have quality stuffs, but less variety. You will get all that you need for your daily life but not all you want.

Here are the list of discount shopping stores in Germany. You will find them all over Germany.

Fast food

1. Turkish Kebab: McDonalds is not the cheapest fast food in Germany. The cheapest fast food in Germany is called a 'Kebab'. It is meat in bread with salad.

Cost of the a kebab varies from €1.99 to €3.50, for the same thing depending on the location of the shop.

Furniture

1. Ikea

2. Baumarkt

neither ikea nor Baumarkt is cheap. What many foreigners do is to buy furniture from second hand shops. They also bring them home and assemble it at cheap rate. For instance in Berlin there are several second hand furniture stores in the 'wedding' district (near wedding train station). They will bring them home for €20.

Another option is to buy it online.

www.real.de

4. Online shops - www. mytoys.de or www. baby-markt.de

Buy and sell second hand things (used things)

Best place to sell and buy used things (almost everything) is ebay kleinanzeigen. It is not like online second hand shop. Say you live in Berlin, you go to ebay kleinanzegen in Berlin and search for things. If you are interested to buy something, you write to the person (better in German, as most people don't reply back if you write in English. Google translate can help you in that). If you like to buy it, go to his house in Berlin, pay and collect it directly. You get almost everything in ebay kleinanzeigen.
