Arkadia Foodstore

The Arkadia vision is quality, choice and value. We understand that our customers want only the best but that they also want variety and fair prices. Arkadia wants your shopping trip to be a pleasant experience not a chore. Our design team ensured a layout for a more natural flow of people, with plenty of room in an airy, relaxed environment. We insisted on wide aisles with clearly defined signs, and excellent lighting to help you easily locate what you want. Our shelves are higher than standard to make it easier to pick your items and to ensure that we can keep enough stocks on display. We also offer a number of services such as delivery and free two-hour parking at our Portomaso store for customers who spend over €15.
