Grocery store in village in Placencia?

Hello everyone:

Does anyone know the name of the grocery store in the village? Also, do you know their hours for Sunday -- are they open Sunday? I'd also like to purchase some Belikin beer there -- do they sell alcoholic beverages?

Thank you for your time. Looking forward to our trip -- 10 days away! :)

JK

P.S. How far is the grocery store (cab price) from the airport? Thanks, again, for looking.

Wallen's is the main market in the town. It's on the main road at the "bend". They are open on Sunday's but do not know the hours.

They do sell Beliken as do the other smaller stores in the village. If you get their in the AM to early PM you can buy Beliken by the case out of the back of the truck. Just look for the woman in the parking lot standing under the umbrella.

Cab fare from the airport to the village is typically $5 USD.

Hi Namesake,

If I'm not mistaken, I think Wallens is closed on Sunday. I got in last year around 5:30 on a Sunday and couldn't get groceries. Olga's may be open in the early eve. Sunday and I think there's another small place that may be open. You may be able to pick up some Belikin's at the airport waiting area stores to take down. I know they have One-Barrel there!

Thank you, smoreldiva!

I'll ask the cab driver as well. Or, we may swing into in the village regardless to take a look. Only 9 more days wil rest and relaxation! :)
