Of all the major supermarket chains in Spain, Carrefour offer the most convenient opening times and the widest range of products. There are 2 located in Torrevieja, the main one is located at Ctra Crevillente in the residential area of Torreta 11 and is open from 09:00 am – 10:00 pm Monday to Sunday as well as bank holidays (Red Days). The smaller one is more of a convenience store that is part of a petrol station called Gasolinera Carrefour and is located on Calle Marco Antonio Marcos Frias 11 also in Torreta 11. This is very handy as it is open 24 hrs, 7 days a week.
Excellent Product Range
The main Carrefour has a large free car park and its well planned shopping area is air conditioned, offers free Wi-Fi and has a good collection of shopping trolleys and baskets. The supermarket is clean and the staff are as helpful as possible and will endeavour to understand a mix of broken Spanish and sign language !! The range of products is excellent and besides the usual food products there are items such as clothing, electrical goods, mobile phones, video games, DVD’s and a gardening section. There is a good selection of organic foodstuff and a section that stocks gluten & lactose free products. The fruit & veg department is large and besides its local produce has a selection of imported fruit. The butcher and fishmonger departments are just as impressive and well stocked. Throughout the supermarket customers will see signs offering discounted and multi buy offers, but be sure to read these carefully as the percentage of discount is in very large print and the amount of items that need to be purchased to receive the discount in small print.
The 24 hr Gasolinera Carrefour stocks mainly convenience and everyday items at a slightly higher cost and besides stock that is due to go out of date, has very few discounted items.
