There are 3 main supermarket chains in Harare: Spar, TM, and Bon Marchè.

Today we walked with a friend about 2 kilometers (a little over 1 mile) to what we call the "Gucci" Spar. It's bigger than any other in the area and has the largest selection of foreign goods. As you might expect from our nickname for it, it also tends to have the highest prices (though it also has deals, you just have to comparison shop).

Our friend pointed out a display I was about to walk past: the milk company is giving away...cows!?! I read it twice before I really believed it.
