Shops near Mirissa.

Hi everyone!!!

Could you please tell me if there are any places like 7/11 or Family Mart near Mirissa. Or some shops where some basic food/drink assortment might be available.

Thanks!

Hi there,

The town itself has plenty of smaller bazaar shops (no selfservice). Closest bigger supermarkets, like Cargill's Food City or Keell's, are in Matara and Galle. Expect the bazaar ones not to have much in terms of cooled food (e.g. fresh milk), but enough dried stuff and fresh fruits/veggies.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Hi,

As Erik has said, small village shops are spread along the main coast road selling snacks such as fresh fruit , biscuits, etc.

For more than that, get a tuk tuk into Matara. As you come into the city you'll see on the right a few small market stalls gathered around the base of a couple of enormous trees. Opposite that, turning left, you'll see a new section of road with a new wall built beside it. Turn left there and about 200 metres is Cargills where you'll find everything you want.

Next door to Cargills there is a couple of banks if you need them.

Thanks for your replies. Not planning to stick to snacks 24/7 but anyway it's always better to know. Just in case!

Thanks!!!
