Shopping in Malta

 

Shopping opportunities in Malta

 

Shopping in Malta is not a priority for recreation, but the country offers excellent opportunities for combining beach and sightseeing with shopping in local shops and supermarkets. After Christmas, the stores begin the main season of sales, which continues until March. Discounts are part of the culture of the Maltese. In a small shop or souvenir store, you can always ask the seller for an additional discount of up to 20

Opening times of shops are usually between 09.00 - 13.00 and 16.00 - 19.00hrs. However, in tourist areas, shops are open throughout the day Mondays to Saturdays, from 09.00 till 19.00 hrs and even later. Here is what you may need to brace for in terms of pricing;
