Euro Quiz # 84 - All About Stores...

Jump to last reply

One of my favorite things to do is peruse supermarkets and department stores and eat at street-food places and cheap restaurants - in Europe that is - today's quiz is all about stores - department stores, supermarkets, snack bars, etc.

1- Berlin's most famous department store is called what and what do each of the three 2 letter abbreviations stand for - the longer words that is?

2- Called by Wiki 'the third largest department store group in Europe' this Spanish department store in a fixture in every Spanish town - what is it and how did it get it name?

3- The Casino group and Galeries Lafayette one owns this chain of stores selling food and everyday essentials - originally a dime store - it's name means "one price" - kind of like our dollar stores?

4- Sylvio Berlosconi's group used to own this Italian supermarket chain still a mainstay in Italy?

5- This original French discount supermarket and hypermarche started in 1948 in Landerneau Brittany and now has 568 places in France and once had a claim that they had the cheapest petro prices - in defiance of a then law setting gas prices at the pump the same everywhere.

6- In London if you want a snack sandwich or coffee head to this chain started in 1984 in Hampstead, London - what is its name and what was the name a take-off on? Once owned by McDonalds it is now also in Hong Kong, NYC, Chicago, DC, Paris, Shanghai and Boston. Often just referred to my its first word in its name.

7- This huge French hypermarche operation started by one man in the Hautes-Champs section of Roubaix, France in 1961 - it takes its name as a prononciation of the district of Roubaix it started in?

8- This English hamburger place started in 1934 was named after a character in Popeye - who was that and what is the chain's name (could be defunct now , not sure).

9- This Belgian imitator of Burger King and MacDonalds in France used the slogan "XXXXX Qui Epate les Americaines" - which translates kind of "which amazes the Americans".

10 - This discount grocer began in Germany as a competitor to Aldi and now has 10,000 stores in Europe?
