De Prince Supermarket has been in existence for over 12 years. It’s a major supermarket in Gbagada and pretty popular among residents. De Prince is privately owned, and a one stop store for items ranging from household goods to groceries, clothing, and toiletries. I’ve heard De Prince Supermarket and Ebeaano Supermarket (located in Lekki Phase 1) are owned by the same person.
Location/Parking: The supermarket had her former location adjacent to Deeper Life Bible Church Gbagada. The church, in an effort to expand, took over the former supermarket’s space. The supermarket moved to a new site, not too far from the church, to secure the loyalty of customers. The new parking lot is spacious, compared to the former site..and with the presence/assistance of the traffic wardens, traffic is always curbed and cars properly parked with maximum security.
Pricing: Personally, I feel their prices vary (i.e. depending on the kind of items you are buying, it could be cheap or expensive) but one thing is guaranteed; you can get original/quality stuff from De Prince. Some say prices are cheap, while others think otherwise but overall, it’s a supermarket for all (middle and high class).
Service: The store is spacious, and the interior is okay. They stock a diverse portfolio of items arranged by sections. The attendants wear a smart casual red polo shirt (with De Prince inscribed at the back), and are usually friendly/willing to help you out with general inquires.
Something interesting, or should I say embarrassing, happened to me during my last window shopping experience. I was in the clothing section and had seen something I might have been interested in. So I took a picture of it, and almost immediately, I heard a lady call out to me, “Madam what are you doing?” I responded saying it was just a harmless photograph, but she insisted I delete the photo and came closer, staring into my phone. I informed her that I was a customer, but she continued to insist, saying she didn’t want to entertain any query from management, so I had to delete the picture. I felt very uncomfortable so I just walked away without purchasing anything.
But for this one experience, I’ve not had any major complaints about their services. Overall, I think they are doing a good job…thumbs up De Prince Supermarket.
