Expats Living in Portugal

Online shopping in Portugal

One of the things I miss most about the UK is how quick it used to be to order something online and have it delivered home or at the office the next day. In Portugal the alternatives to buying online tend to be a bit diminished, I wonder if it’s because people in Portugal dislike giving their credit card details online. Regardless of the motive, you must not despair, here’s some of the stores where you can order groceries, sports gear or even furniture. Some have free delivery, others charge a small fee.

FOR THE SPORTS FANATICS

SPORT ZONE

Either if you’re looking for sneakers, a backpack or gym apparel this is the place to go.

Free delivery when you order above €14,99.

DECATHLON 

This is another great option for home delivery when it comes to buying sports gear. The best part is that you can get things delivered at home for free when you make a purchase of more than €10.

NO MORE CARRYING GROCERY BAGS UPSTAIRS – SUPERMARKETS

JUMBO

This is one of my favorite supermarkets because it’s French which means it has loads of French cookies on offer, not as much as ELECLERC as I’ve recently discovered but still, there’s a great selection. So the catch is that you have to pay delivery, regardless of how much you buy.

Delivery will cost you a mere €5,90.

CONTINENTE

This is the biggest supermarket chain in Portugal and it sells anything from home decoration, to books, and to meat and vegetables.

Delivery prices start at €4,90.

FOR THE STYLISH BUYER ON A BUDGET

IKEA

Beautiful, modern designs at sometimes unbelievable prices. What’s not to like about this Swedish superstore?

Delivery is not cheap but if you live far from an IKEA or don’t own a car then this could be the perfect solution.

Prices for delivery start at €25.
