Where can you get these in Moscow - simple spot lights for kitchen or bathroom?

Been to half a dozen shops today and selection is really small. Went to a shop with three floors of lights but they don't sell light bulbs. :rant:

Ideally something around Taganskaya/Kievskaya/Paveletskaya area.

any photo maybe? on Kievskaya this huge Mega Center (Europa center?) for sure must ahve a shop/showroom that has lamps, lights and light fittings?
if nothing else, try Dorogomilovsky Market, not far away, they have kiosks where they sell all kinds of things including lamps/lights/ light fittings.
still nothing there? check out the clever wwww for -Dvoi Dom- huge household stores, from super exclusive to cheap chinese plastic flowers, they have TONS of EVERYTHING...

I had the same problem in the beginning, but turned out that I was simply blind and searched in the wrong corners of the supermarkets.

In most supermarkets you find at least the most common bulbs either close to the cashiers or somewhere near the detergents. Karusel and Perekrostok tend to have a wider selection.

IKEA has a huge selection of almost any kind of bulb you could want.

it is not the bulbs that Martin is looking for, but something like that on the picture? and THAT you can not find in a supermarket. but indeed Ikea also has spotlights....

Ben, Perekrostok and Karusel have them, sometimes Bahetle does as well. That's where I buy them.

Thanks for the responses.

Benedkit, it is a simple kitchen ceiling or bathroom ceiling 'spot light', maybe it's not called that though :) I'm definitely not looking for the show business variety!

I will try Perekrestok.

What/Where is Ben? Never heard of it.

Ben = short for Benedikt ... I meant to address him in my post. Only now realized that it is a bit confusing.

i was assuming/meaning -supermarket- the shop around the corner, not the big hypers with 1000's of m2....
for that, also AUCHAN has lights and so has Leroy Merlin.
