Super Cheap in Phuket

Warehouse-Like Shop in Phuket Town

Super Cheap, just north of Phuket Town, is a sprawling warehouse-like market almost the size of a city block. Inside, it’s stacked high with every product you could possibly imagine and more. Retail chaos under one roof is hard to come by in the west, but here in Thailand it’s very much alive and kicking.

Even though Supercheap mostly sells wholesale, you can still buy individual products at the cheapest prices on the island (many restaurants and bars come here to do their shopping). Half the fun of visiting Supercheap is trying to understand the sequence of it. It really doesn’t make sense but it’s one of the most unusual Phuket experiences.

Covering around 12,000 square metres of space, the building looks exactly like any standard supermarket – Big C, Tesco Lotus, and the likes – when viewed from the outside. The only difference is its rather impressive height.

Basically, you could find almost anything at Super Cheap: clothing, packed and fresh food, car and motorcycle accessories, furniture, aquarium fish, tools, Buddhist accessories, cosmetics, construction materials, clocks, fishing rods, mobile phones, cigarettes, coffee percolators – you name it.

Backpacks and large bags are not allowed inside Super Cheap, so customers must leave them at the entrance where an employee gives them a ticket to take it back later. Inside, the size of the supermarket is even more impressive; the ceiling is about 15 metres above your head and the backside of the hangar is 120 metres away.

Built upon a metallic structure painted in white with corrugated galvanised iron roof, Super Cheap is like a labyrinth; its aisles, delimited by orange painted metallic shelves and the cement flooring give a neat and clean impression.

Super Cheap’s floorplan is on display next to the front door to help customers to find what they are looking for through the alleyways (there’s an English version of the plan available). Some departments – electronics, pharmacy, liquors and wines, frozen goods – are set in air-conditioned stores accessible through fully automated doors.
