Saturday - public holiday.

I have been informed it's a public holiday on Saturday 12th oct. the day I arrive. Will the tobacconist and supermarkets be open? I'm sure they were last year but can't remember.

Thank you

is Columbus day, dont remember any closures in previous years.

Just check on the payment situation at the tabacco shops, in Playa den Bossa they now operate on a cash only basis, will not take debit and credit cards even if supported by a passport.

had to go to an ATM for cash as we bought for our return to the u.k.

Noted our local supermarket closed at 3pm instead of 9pm on Saturday due to the public holiday.
