american grocery?

Postby sugarsnow » Wed, 20 Jun 2007 1:06 pm

Hi I'm new I'm in Singapore on a long vacation to be with my fiancee, I noticed Singapore stores like cold storage have alot of American products but its always the products IE shampoo, face wash, shaving cream, razors, thats I never would buy back in America. I'm wondering if there is any specialized American import store anywhere in Singapore's. I know there a shops selling items from Korean only and such so I was curious if there was any shop or area specializing in American goods. I'm esp looking for fruitics shampoos and skintamite shaving cream and grape jelly xD sorry for my bad spelling

I can't speak to specific brands but I'm an American who recently moved here. Cold Storage has a pretty narrow selection on virtually everything, a better grocery store to check would be Carrefour (I go to the one at Plaza Singapura or Suntec) or Giant Hypermarket which is at Marina Square Mall among other places.

For those things like shampoo another place worth checking is Mustafa Centre (the 24 hr store). They actually have a pretty wide selection on those kinds of things. Watsons (a chain of personal care stores all over the city) also has a lot of the bigger name brand American toiletrie products.
