Mercadona has introduced this summer special opening hours in the supermarkets of its network located in areas of greater tourist influx. The company chaired by Juan Roig has chosen to extend the opening hours of its stores located in coastal points, localities of second summer residence or in some localities of the metropolitan areas of the big capitals until ten at night. The opening is generally maintained at nine in the morning.
Although the Mercadona maximum does not open on Sundays and holidays, the company makes exceptions in those locations that have a higher volume of tourists in summer.
In that sense, in addition to extending the schedule from Monday to Saturday until ten at night, the Valencian capital company opens during the summer campaign on Sundays and holidays from nine in the morning to three in the afternoon the supermarkets located in the points of greater influx of visitors.
Mercadona has a search engine on its website that details the schedules of all supermarkets.
The company has reinforced its workforce this year with 9,000 contracts for the summer campaign. According to company sources, “the objective is to reinforce its workforce during this period to guarantee the excellence of the service in the more than 1,600 stores that the company has throughout Spain, a time that coincides with the arrival of tourists and with the vacations of the rest of the staff
