Overview: Shop Opening Times
From May to October, all grocery shops, souvenir shops and supermarkets are normally open on weekdays and Saturdays from 8am – 8pm as a general rule, with larger shops often closing later at 9.00 or 10 p.m.
On Sundays, smaller shops generally open the same times as weekdays, but supermarkets may close at 1 or 2 pm, although the management of the supermarkets can decide to keep them open on Sundays for the same times as on weekdays during the high season (meaning July/August) until 6 – 8pm.
In low season opening times are usually the same – shops just tend to close one hour earlier in the evening – meaning shops are open usually until 8 p.m at the latest.
Other shops such as boutiques and electronics shops usually work until noon or 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays and are closed on Sundays. Shops usually adopt Sunday working hours for majority of national or religious (Roman Catholic) holidays.
