Anyone know an alternative super market to the " harrods " in cortina .
It's a bit like Lidl, but think its closed on Sunday.
Yes- Supermercato Kanguro is on the 1-way system road, before the sharp bends that go up past the big car parks by tourist info. It's easy to miss. A good supermarket and certainly no Harrods...

I actually quite like the "harrods". Makes food shopping in Lidl or Aldi and being diverted by all the gardening gloves, led kitchen lights, cycling tops, packs of post-its (or whatever else is on offer that week) look quite amateurish in comparison.
Where else can you buy toothpaste, tomatoes and quick-draws, all under the same roof?
On a more serious note and in contrast to France, I don't think that Italy on the whole really seems to have got the hang of supermarkets. Maybe that's no bad thing either.
