Shopping in Lloret de Mar
30 October 2008 @ 15:06

A bit of local news from Lloret de Mar...

The results of a recent poll have found that about 25% of residents buy their weekly shopping out side of the town. Most people I know go to Blanes where there is far more choice of supermarkets. About 80% of the shops in Lloret are aimed at the tourist market, no good at all if you want to get your groceries in for the week!
The town hall has now said it hopes to improve the situation. (The sooner the better!!)

The area of Lloret where I live (Fenals) has over the last few years seen a big increase in apartment blocks being built, so with this there has been a steady rise of shops for the residents opening up along side these. Which means that for us here in Fenals we now have a reasonable choice of supermarkets, maybe more so than over in Lloret!

I bet McDonalds wish they had kept open with the way new blocks are going up there in Fenals. Blanes has always been the best place to shop but Lloret just has to do something about the situation because new blocks are being built there at such speed. Compared to even just three years ago it is unrecogniseable in the area around El Moli and to send all those people out to Blanes or Vidreres is just silly.
