Unhappy BFS Euro Mart closing down.

I am very sad to inform you all that Euro Mart will be closing down next week.

John and Hayley have decided to return to the UK because they were not happy with their boys education here and feel they will get on much better in the UK.

They will be sorely missed by the residents and tourists alike but i am sure you will all wish them well for their future, i certainly do.

Goodbye John and Hayley, take care.

That's a great pity.

All the best for their future.

I, too, wish them all the best. Over the years we've had both good service and friendly, helpful advice.

Shame to see another business close, albeit this one apparently through personal rather than financial reasons, but I feel a "British" shop is a difficult business in which to prosper these days as so many of the supermarkets now sell British items.

To me it was like a village shop (you may need to live in a village to get this) You can buy most of the items you need from the large chains but it's good to support a small business. When I'm here for a few weeks I need mint sauce, taramasalata, samosas, Cornish pasties ....and haven't seen those in Eroski

Have seen lots of British foods in the Spar type grocers in the road up to the Pollensa Park I have been quite amazed at how many sometimes !

Not sure if they open in the winter though ?

You can get British/European foods in all the bigger supermarkets as well but they are nearly always dearer than Euromart were, i doubt the Spar near the Fergus (Pollensa Park) would be open in winter.
