You'll find a supermarket in virtually every neighbourhood in Nijmegen. Generally, they are open until around 21:00h or 22:00h. Well-known supermarkets are Albert Heijn, Coop and Jumbo, or discounters Aldi and Lidl. Every supermarket requires you to identify yourself in case you want to buy alcohol or tobacco. Discount supermarkets do not offer the garbage bags required for waste collection in Nijmegen.

Next to the supermarkets in neighbourhoods, Nijmegen also has a very large Albert Heijn on the St. Jacobslaan. It has a larger assortment of goods, as well as freshly prepared dishes and non-food items.
