    1st this is only our opinion and after years we know what we want from where so we end up shopping at all 3 over our 2 weeks in Aruba.

    Ling's .... most products from USA, great seafood counter and produce.
    Kong Hing ...... deli counter and bakery, more mix of USA and Euro products & Aruba Aloe products on sale some Tues, Wed & Thurs
    Super Foods .... largest selection of euro products.

    Lings for wine and Kong Hing for beer price wise but the guy at Kong Hing has a nice selection of South American wines you wont see in the much in USA and the knowledge to make good recs.
    Aruba where the toughest question each day is "where to dine tonight".

    click the above link for the map to lings.

    and the directions to the other stores, using the exact same map......
    (the map is taking you past the tamarijn heading towards the downtown away from the hotel/resort district.
    once you pass the tamarijn, at the traffic lights turn right onto SMITH blvd and the other grocery stores will be on your left)
    those stores are running parallel with the ocean less than 1/4 mile from lings located on the northbound side of LG Smith Blvd.

    I live here in Aruba and I have to say the best prices are found at Ling and Sons for sure.

    Nothing against the map on the Ling & Sons web site but here is a Google Maps section that may be a little clearer

    At least the three big stores (Ling & Sons, Kong Hing, Super Food) are close together so shopping around is relatively convenient.

    lings has changed location........maybe 6 or 7 yrs ago. it is now back a block where the map has "frasa international trading" located.

    maybe a 100 yds difference.

    paul and i really like lings and like super food.
    we find the pricing comparable for what we purchase.

    and re the carry out kids................if you choose to let them bring your stuff to your car, please remember to tip them. that is their only pay...the supermarkets do not pay them.

    I think that was just Google Maps approximation of the address (the southeast corner of the property) but I did a quick edit to clarify the location
