Shops in six of the coastal towns in the Costa del Sol have extended their shopping hours and will be open seven days a week until September 30, in an attempt to recover trade following the health pandemic.
Department stores, retail parks and shops in Fuengirola, Marbella, Estepona, Nerja, Torremolinos and Benalmádena can now open seven days a week, including public holidays.
All six areas have the biggest influx in tourism and this year the shops are open a month earlier than in previous years, according to SUR.
The Junta de Andalucia has allowed the opening of all businesses in the six towns, regardless of their size. This is a favourable decision for large shopping centres such as the Miramar shopping centre in Fuengirola, and La Cañada and El Corte Inglés in Marbella.
The Junta says it hopes this “will have a positive economic impact in terms of direct and indirect jobs generated and by contributing to the improvement of the local economy.”
