Whats Happened to Faro 2?

Just returned and we were shocked at Faro 2?

2 shops and 2 restaurants open?

This used to the hub of Campio International and Maspalomas, but it was empty......

It's such a shame that this has happened.

Total dump isn't it? feel sorry for the brave souls struggling on but a couple of the cafes were busy in the day (I wouldn't dare go there at night) and the supermarket is still open.

Last thing we heard was that El Corte Ingles had bought it and were planning on converting it/replacing it with a 4 storey department store, but not sure how accurate that may be.

El Corte Ingles would be good there.

Perfect to bring people into the area.
