Benidorm is rapidly expanding its shopping facilities, and two great openings have recently taken place in the La Marina shopping centre in Finestrat. The newcomers are Poundland and El Corte Ingles Outlet.
The first Benidorm DEALZ store – the name under which Poundland is trading in Spain – has over 6,000 sq m and is located on the ground floor of the shopping centre. It stocks more than 3,000 branded products, including food and drink, home, garden, children’s products and toiletries; most of the brands are familiar to Britons, and all products are priced at €1,5.
Another expected opening took place in July when one of Spain’s largest department stores El Corte Ingles inaugurated its outlet shop right at the back of the shopping centre, where the electrical store Worten used to be. Here you can stock up on prestigious international brands for women’s, men’s and kids’ clothing, shoes, sporting & household goods, and much more products at accessible outlet prices.
Further stores to be open in Benidorm are Leroy Merlin, a French home-improvement and gardening retailer similar to the British B&Q, which is being constructed in La Cala de Finestrat (inauguration in December, 2016), and another big shopping centre Unibail-Rodamco which is now only at a project-stage.
