Lidl supermarket opened it’s doors today in San Fernando de Maspalomas. The low cost supermarket has already created a lot of buzz on the island with it’s other stores. Lidl is very popular with tourists and so San Fernando was a great place to open.
They commemorated the day by giving away flowers and special gifts to customers. Due to the volume of people waiting in a queue outside of the shop, I didn’t go inside but I did see plenty of shoppers with things like vacuum cleaners and tools that they had purchased along with their groceries.
The unique thing about this Lidl is the opening hours, as you can see in the photograph above, they are open late on Sundays.
Barriers and security had to be placed due to the amount of shoppers waiting to experience the new Lidl shop.
