Currently in Spain there are certain laws that restrict shops opening on Sundays. During summer and holiday periods (Christmas and Easter etc.) all the major supermarkets will open on Sundays. During off season peak times they will not be open.
With the arrival of summer in Albir the supermarkets give us extended hours to do our shopping. Laws in Spain only allow supermarkets to open on a certain number of Sundays in a year, this was to assist small independent supermarkets and mini markets who needed to take a day off.
Now that summer has arrived all the supermarkets have taken advantage to open later in the evenings and also open on Sundays. This is a great benefit to both residents and holiday makers.
Below we list the main (chain supermarkets) in Albir and the new hours of operation for Sundays during the summer months.
