At 9:15 on 1st December Mercadona opened it's doors to the public of Corralejo. It joins it's sister shop, in Rosario, which opened it's doors in September.


At about 9:00 am there was a small group of people waiting for the grand opening. The queue slowly grew as we neared the magic opening time. With plenty of car park space plus plenty of parking bays on the road it was never going to look like a massive queue.
When the doors opened the people filed in, quite ordely, to be confronted by wide isles and plenty of choice on the well stocked shelves. With prices lower than their local rivals perhaps we will see a bit of competition between the supermarkets of Corralejo at last.
