In the shop you can find mostly sports clothing and other fashionable clothes. In addition its sells many other products from sunglasses to toys.

The Local Market
This is maybe the best place to make shopping in Carei, people from all over the region come to sell thier products.
The Big Market (which sells almost everything) is opend in Monday and in Friday from the early morning hours until noon (about 2-3 p.m.). I prefer to come at the morning hours because then there is better atmosphre and better products.
The market is open at other weekdays too but then it sells only fruits and vegetables.
Most of the market is made up of stands were people sell thier stuff, there are also some new boutiques but they are a bit more expensive.
What to buy: There are many stands selling chip clothes and shoes, most of them are faked but they look good and not expensive at all... there are bbok stands, Cd's, food and many other silly stuff that you can imagine.
What to pay: Very cheap, at least if you come from a western country. It is also cheaper then buying at the shops in city Center. For example you can buy a Nike shoes in less then 10 Dollars.
The Former Victoria shop
The Victoria used to be the towns department store at the past. it was built at the communist regime, it wasnt a success and eventually went bankrupt.
Today the store start to get back some of the lost glory, the first floor is yet not in use but in the ground floor you can find a CBA supermarket, a tourism agency, some boutiques an a restuarant.
