The large department stores, hypermarkets, supermarkets and shopping malls are open from Mon. to Sat. from 9 am. or 10 am. to 9.30 pm. or 10.30 pm. Most of them also open the first Sunday of every month.
Please note that most individual/small shops close for lunch at 1.30 pm. or 2 pm., re-opening only at 4 pm. and sometimes 5 pm. Furthermore, on Saturday afternoons, they are often closed. We advise you to call the shop
in advance to check opening times.
Wet markets follow the same rules: they open in the morning and evening but remain closed for the “siesta”.
