China Town - New Chinese shop opening soon
#1
I'm sure some of you've already noticed the massive sign next to Mercadona in "Polígono Industrial El Matorral". We had a quick look inside the shop a couple of days ago and there was three or four people unpacking boxes and kicking us out once we walked in. Here is the new sign and yes, that's the place where Edem used to be.
   


It looks like the existing Chinese shop is getting a facelift too, at least the outside with a new sign, although not as impressive as the China Town. We didn't have time to check if there was some refurbishment happening inside the shop but I would expect them to be pretty much stressing out about having a direct competition just a few yards from them.

Superbarato is the existing Chinese shop.  It opened up a few years ago in competition with the original Chinese shop that was further up the road.  It didn't take long for the original one to close.

I've promised Mrs Sensible that I'll give her 10€ to spend in China Town when it opens.

You'll wave goodbye to your tenner very soon Captain. The shop will open Monday 19th Nov.

Just an reminder: Tomorrow is the "grand opening". Not sure if there will be some promotion or discount (it would certainly be nice) but I guess it'll be worth to at least see what they do offer. Anyone is planning to check them out?

I would expect them to keep the prices similar if not better than the existing one.

Thanks John, looking forward your update.

50% off is quite a discount, especially on the cheap products they do sell over there. Time (and the customers) will tell if they can live next to each other and keep the cash coming in. I'm sure the competition is much appreciated by people living around.
