See which stores and shopping malls will be open and shut in Murcia this May Day holiday

This Wednesday May 1 is May Day, also known as International Workers’ Day and Labor Day, and is a festivo in the whole of Spain. Shops, businesses and government offices will be shut but some places will remain open in the Region of Murcia.


These are the main stores, supermarkets and shopping centres that will be open this bank holiday Wednesday.


Shopping centres


The shops at the Nueva Condomina, Thader, Atalayas, La Noria and Parque Almenara shopping malls will all be closed this Wednesday May 1 . Only the gymnasium, karting, cinemas and restaurants will be open.


However, the shopping centres of Águilas Plaza (Águilas), Espacio Mediterráneo (Cartagena) and Dos Mares (San Javier) will all be open.


El Corte Inglés and IKEA, both those in Murcia and Cartagena, will be shut for the day.




As for the supermarkets, Mercadona is closing its doors, as it always does on public holidays.


Lidl, Carrefour, Aldi, Alcampo, Consum and Dia do not have such a strict policy of closing on bank holidays, meaning most of their shops will be open on May 1, although in some cases their opening hours will simply be reduced. That’s why, if you’re thinking of going to any of these supermarkets, it is best to check the website of each store to find out exactly if your nearest supermarket is open.


More public holidays coming up in Murcia


After the May Day bank holiday, we will have to wait for over three months until the next festivo in Murcia, which is also a holiday in the rest of Spain.



The regional holiday on June 9 for the Region of Murcia Day falls on a Sunday this year, and it will NOT be moved to Monday June 10.
