Shopping Centres in Cordoba

Shopping Centres

Andalucia is not alone in its quest for the convenience of large out-of-town shopping centres or commercial centres ( centros comerciales) .

Sunday Trading in Andalucia

Traditionally very few shops used to open on a Sunday or public holiday in Andalucia. This was due to restrictions on Sunday trading by the Junta de Andalucía (regional government). However, since 2020, the number of Sundays when shopping centres and large supermarkets are permitted to open has increased substantially.

Trading on Sundays and bank holidays for shopping centres and shops whose floor space is more than 300 square metres is decreed by the Junta de Andalucía. Shops that can open on any Sunday or holiday are:

Shops selling cakes and pastries, bread, ready meals, chips (French fries), nuts and sweets, newspapers, flowers and plants; also the preparation and sale of churros.

Shops selling cultural and sporting products located inside museums, and cultural or sporting establishments.

Petrol stations and shops designated as 'convenience stores'.

Shops in train and bus stations, and airports and sea ports.

Larger shops and shopping centres are permitted to open on the following Sundays and holidays throughout Andalucía. Note that this does not imply that all shops in a town or village will be open on a Sunday; it simply means that they are permitted to open. In practice, larger shopping centres and retail parks will definitely be open, while some shops in towns and cities will open. Shops in smaller towns and villages will be closed, apart from small convenience stores and petrol stations.
