As people salivate over this new operation in Vales, one can only congratulate them on immaculate timing as the main season comes to a close. Shifting stock to this shop does not come free, so there must be some sort of transport premium on the prices - one can hope that they apply standard pricing used by their big bretheren on the South coast. We all know the comments about pricing in relation to the long standing mini-mercado in VDT.

It will be interesting to watch, given the experience of Spar, Mini-Preco & Alisuper in Aljezur over the years.

It is a welcome addition that hopefully will create a wider choice on the doorstep.

I understand it is a spin off company of Continente.

If that is so, it sounds like a Meu Super, that is the franchising operation of Sonae MC, the holding Company of Continente/Modelo formats. This type of operation usually covers stores sizes from 100sq to 500 sq meters, but I do not suppose there are any fixed limits. There are Meu Super shops in STT & Porto Covo as well as 5 in the Algarve including Lagos.
So it is a case of wait and see until the fascia goes up.

I was told it was not a common store 'down South'

If you are using the word common, in the context of not frequently occurring, then that is true, given that only 5 shops exist in the whole of the Algarve.

It is a Meu Super and looking at its opening discount offer (15%) on a Continente card which is valid from 11th October, one assumes it is opening tomorrow.
