Emart (Gongdeok, Mapo-gu, Seoul) will be closed on the second and fourth Sundays for February 2013 (10th and 24th).
I hope I'm not the only one noticing that Emart prices have been steadily increasing... A mushroom would be 500won more expensive than the week before and 1000won more expensive for a bag of onions compared to Lotte Super (Gongdeok). I don't even look at the fruit there. The prices are getting quite ridiculous. It changes too much...
Please be aware of the prices in Emart - it's not cheap like it really should be. Our much smaller grocery store(in our apartment complex) actually has better prices for veggies - where we get most of it from.
Emart is also being investigated right now by the government - I can't tell you the details much... most likely for corruption etc etc... so please stay smart and shop smart. Also try to support the smaller guys - smaller stores/markets and vendors.
I used to love Emart - but these big guys are slowly getting too big...I don't appreciate the price anymore (it's not cheap)!
