Drug Stores

Hi. Does anyone know if there are any biggish Drug Stores in Torre del Mar or nearby from Cómpeta. Something like Boots, DM or Rossmann?

Thanks..

There are farmacias of varying sizes but they tend to be expensive. Any form of medicine, even aspirin, is only available from farmacias here, although you can buy some vitamin supplements now from the supermarket.

Otherwise you need to go to a large supermarket like Eroski or Carrefour if you want a larger choice of goods and they both have a 'parafarmacia' section selling more specialist potions and lotions.

There is a chain of shops called Primor in both those shopping centres which sell a large range of perfume, make-up and soaps etc. Depends on what you are looking for.

Thanks for the info. I'm sure I'll find kinesiotape and contact lens fluid there. I'll take a look. Thanks again..

I buy my contact lens fluid from Soloptical in El Ingenio .... 3 large bottles for 11€, but as already mentioned, available in Mercadona now too. Not sure about the tape but if you're in El Ingenio look in the parafarmacia section of Eroski, otherwise I guess you'll need a farmacia.
