How would you describe the availability and cost of groceries and household supplies relative to your home country?

Relatively expensive because everything is imported. - Aug 7, 2014
Groceries are actually quite expensive especially if you are buying imported items. Fresh milk is about US$8 for half a gallon. Beef and pork is really expensive. It can be hard to get sea food and the quality of meet really isn't very good. There are a few specialty stores that sell German, Turkish, Australian, and Japanese ingredients. - Nov 6, 2013
Cheaper than the U.K. Most things are available. - Dec 29, 2008
Groceries are cheap! Local produce is CHEAP and good. Some western items (pasta sauce, etc) is a little more than US prices, but hey it's available (mostly Australian brands). Cleaning supplies are plentiful and cheap. BND $2.90 for a mop or broom. - Jan 2, 2008
