    Pultust, for sure, is not a shop paradise! Most of the town's population go to shop to Warsaw. However, there are some big supermarkets where you can buy food and everyday things. Cloths, shooes and some other things you can buy in a neighbourhood of market square, mainly in Swietojanska Street.

    What to pay: Usually supermarkets accept credit cards.
