Jimmys was closed all last year, I think he is gone. The Fruitaria opposite the Cavern is gone too, thought you might have noticed that Cubsur!!. Not sure about the Coviran behind the Camara either.

Yes I had spotted those, forgot about them but will update. Thanks for the reminder.

I have also seen yesterday that the SPAR in Rua Dunfermline has closed, replaced by something just called 'Supermarket'.

I can check the Coviran on Monday when I am up that way.

Jimmy's in Rua do MFA has definitely gone, but a new shop has opened next door called Patel's Stores. A typical small Indian store with big bags of rice stacked high.

The Coviran around the back of the Câmara is still going.

The SPAR shop in Santa Eulalia has closed. Quite recently by the look of it, as there was stuff still inside.

Would say looking around town lately there is going to be a lot of them appearing. Even the lads doing the drainage work down the old town sea front area had turbans same as does one of the road sweepers.

Thanks Hamlet. I haven't been that way lately. All the small SPAR stores around town have now closed, leaving only the larger ones at Avenida da Liberdade near the bus stops and taxis, in Rua das Telecomunicações at the bottom of Cerro Branco hill and the one in Rua Vasco da Gama that goes down to Auramar and Aquamarina. Their store over in Sesmarias, Estrada do Castelo, is also open for business.

Their shop at the marina is not listed on their website but it was there last week.

"I f you mean Akil`s near Teasers Tom it was open Sunday night,"

I don't know that one.

Strange! The SPAR in Santa Eulalia, which was firmly closed last week, was open today. The sign says hours are 0900 to 2400 daily. Maybe it isn't a real SPAR any more? Anyway, it's back on the list.

Updates - Supermercado Central in the old town Avenida 25 de Abril has closed down.

The SPAR in Santa Eulália is still a real SPAR.
