A Persian supermarket, a form of grocery store, is a self-service store offering a wide variety of Persian food and products. It is larger in size and has a wider selection than a traditional grocery store and it is smaller than a superstore.
The Persian supermarket typically comprises meat, fresh produce, dairy, and baked goods departments along with shelf space reserved for canned and packaged goods as well as for various nonfood items. Most Persian supermarkets also sell a variety of other household products that are consumed regularly, such as alcohol (where permitted), household cleaning products, medicine, clothes, and some sell a much wider range of nonfood products.
The traditional suburban Persian supermarket occupies a large amount of floor space, usually on a single level, and is situated near a residential area in order to be convenient to consumers. Its basic appeal is the availability of a broad selection of persian goods under a single roof at relatively low prices. Other advantages include ease of parking and, frequently, the convenience of shopping hours that extend far into the evening or even 24 hours a day. Iranian or Persian Supermarkets as they are often called, usually make massive outlays of newspaper and other advertising and often present elaborate in-store displays of products. The stores often are not part of a corporate chain that owns or controls (sometimes by franchise) other supermarkets located nearby.
The exact number of Persian supermarkets in the US is not known , but we hope we can bring the vast majority of them here for you, along with their phone numbers, addresses, and products they offer.
