Default Where to buy replacement hearing aid batteries in PP

I have a family member staying with me for 5 or 6 weeks. Where in PP can I obtain replacement batteries for her hearing aid? I asked in one of the pharmacies today and they've directed me to the Chinese supermarket. If anyone has a suggestion that I should try you can send me a pm if you prefer.

You would need to know which size batteries you need, could be size 10, 312, 13 or 675 etc.

If you cant find locally then amazon .es (spanish amazon) will deliver within a few days and they do have collection shops/points so you don't have to wait around for a delivery.
(The same login details for UK amazon works on all the amazon sites )

edit: the site changes the word to uk site , try a m a z o n (dot) es for the spanish site

Thank you Mark, I will check the battery size, I had hoped somewhere local might stock these batteries?
It is interesting to learn that Amazon,es has collection points in PP which will be handy in future for any orders of small packages.

Default Try the Opticians

Here in the UK some Opticians stock hearing aids and I presume batteries. Try the Opticians on Juan.

My husband thinks the large chemist near the small Chinese shop on the street down to the Marina sells them He wears hearing aids so probably more likely to notice them

As others say Opticians sell hearing aids here so quite likely to be the same there

Default Thanks for advice

As family member mentioned is staying on to end of October I just wanted to ensure a supply of essentials would be available in case her supply runs out. Amazon is definitely an option and items can be delivered/collected from the Correos. I still have to check out the suggestions of the opticians, chemist on Juan XXIII and the Chinese shop in town. Thanks to everyone for suggestions.

There is a building opposite the PAC in Pollenca which houses a physio and also a hearing aid clinic. It is a brown wooded building. They may be able to help.

Correct Lollipop and they should be able to tell you where the hearing aid center is in Pollensa because I cannot remember but I have seen it.
