la-cañada-marbella-shoppingGood news for the shopaholics on the coast comes from the news that the main shopping centre in Marbella, known as La Cañada, is to be expanded.

An new floor is to be added to the main building giving an extra 2,000 sqm of retail space.

The plan had to be approved by four different departments of the Junta de Andalucia. The Employment, Economy, Innovation and Science departments all had to be consulted.

La Cañada is also the new location for the town’s annual Feria. This year the festivities will take place on the large plot next the the centre (which is reserved for future commercial expansion) and after that a site slightly to the north will be used. Welcome news for anyone who values a good night’s sleep!
