1)City Shop

The City Shop chain is one of the most recognisable and well-established in Shanghai. There are seven branches across town, all offering a massive range of imported food like cereal, pasta, sauce, wine, biscuits, fresh fruit, vegetables and dairy products. They also stock English books and international magazines. You can order online through their website and even receive free delivery for orders over 200 RMB; however, there is a service charge of 20 RMB. The main branches are listed below and the others can be found on CityShop’s website.

2) FeiDan

Somewhat bizarrely, this chain’s name means "flying egg" and their whimsical cartoon logo attests to this. All five branches are well-stocked with goods imported mainly from Europe and the United States. They accept online orders via their website and they will deliver your ordered goods for free, within three hours; there is a minimum delivery amount of 100 RMB. Another good reason to shop at FeiDan is the free fabric shopping bag they’ll give you, which is perfect for re-using or doubling up as a laundry bag. The gelato bar at the Anfu Lu branch is also worth a visit.

4) FreshMart

Accessible either from Jing'an Temple metro station or the Jiu Guang shopping mall, FreshMart is a Japanese brand which offers a wide range of imported goods. The Japanese element can be seen in the long sushi counter and in the selection of plum wines.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
