    Default Another Grocery Store in Bavaro/Punta Cana coming!

    This past week or so the Cinema area of Plaza Real has been cordoned off and barriers put up.

    My boyfriend went today and asked the security guys what was going on and they said that a Plaza Lama is going in and it should be open in 6 months!

    If that is correct, it will be interesting to see what prices in the area will be like a year from now.

    Thanks for the update, I have been wondering what they were up to. Certainly good for the area more competition should force prices down a little. Hopefully it's not a repeat of the new Iberia and that its actually a full blown store with everything and not just another supermercado.

    wondering how much space do they have to build the Plaza Lama ...
    anyway, having then Lama, Pola and Iberia, prices should go down, at least a bit ...

    It's probably going to be electro-domestics, not groceries, unless anyone has other information.

    I would have to agree on this. They are not known for their groceries. As for their electronics, be aware that they sell a lot of refurbished goods as new, and basically any junk that does not sell in the US goes to them.

    I was told by a friend that it's a new disco that they're opening... Apparently this person knows the owners or something. Guess we'll just have to wait and see...

    A friend confirmed this morning that it IS Plaza Lama but only the grocery section. So basically we've gone to almost no supermarkets 2 years ago to having a Nacional, Pola, Iberia and now Plaza Lama. LOL! I just wish someone would put in a DEPARTMENT store in the area. People DO need to buy clothes and household items around here!
