Billa it self stands for "Billiger Laden" meaning cheap store. Billa mostly sell brand products and a few home brand products thats why it is more expensive than other chains.
Rewe operates under three names:
Billa - normal supermarket up to about 400 square meters
Penny - are Rewes discount answer to Zielpunkt, Plus. Lidl and Hofer
Merkur - hypermarkets more than 1000 square meters
Please note, these opening times are general opening times of this chain, there might diver for some branches:
Monday - Friday: 08:00 - 19:30
Saturday: 08:00 - 18:00
Sunday: Not Open (Except in the stores at Praterstern - Vienna and Franz Joseph Bahnhof - Vienna)
Keep in mind Austria has shorter opening hours than some other countries, on Sundays only a few (search for Billa on this side) have open.
