Might be useful for some to know that the SPAR in Rua Dunfermline near the Forte do Vale is now open until midnight every night.

A heads up that the Oceano supermarket at Patroves is 'closed for renovations' - people were working inside. No re-opening date given.

Also, the new ALDI at Vale de Parra is going to be pretty big. Picture taken this afternoon. Click for full size.


Vale de Parra is obviously the place to be. A few steps from ALDI is this rather imposing looking development of I know not what.



And also, although there was no point in taking a picture, a few chaps were toiling away at the new Iceland store coming in Galé. No sign of any opening date.

The ALDI building at Vale De Parra is substantially complete. Nothing inside yet so still plenty of work to be done.

The finishing touches are being made to the Iceland Overseas store at Galé. All they would say though was 'open soon'!


I have also been told that LIDL have bought a patch of land in Vale de Parra!

It’s all happening in Vale de Parra!
That other “imposing” development you mention Tom, the primary unit is going to be another restaurant, the other units are all retail. When I expressed the view that it would take years to find occupants I was told they were all already taken.
I also here another restaurant later in the year next to Jompra.
On the flip side, it looks like O’Girasol has closed.
Oceana has been taken over so they are all being closed in turn for refit in new companies style, like the one in Vale de Parra that opened in its new livery a couple of weeks ago.

"On the flip side, it looks like O’Girasol has closed."

I went past it the other day it still had stuff outside but someone else has also said it was closed. Also apparently closed is Lageado by the Glenridge resort a bit further up the road.

Coviran has taken over the Oceano chain. The store on the main road near Vale de Parra is now branded Coviran Plus Oceano and has re-opened. The other one round the back of Bayside etc was also open last Thursday.

That's what you want when you've got property there already 👍

Very true 👍👍👍
But then again, unless you’re selling and cashing up, it’s of little relevance, but it is reassuring if you’re a property owner.
