'Aiga' furniture suppliers-Sal Island
Looking for -Shops and Services
Sal has been developing as a popular holiday tourist destination. Most of the main hotels are to be found in Santa Maria on the south of the island. This is where you will find the main shopping area, eating places and bars.
There are furniture suppliers and showrooms, shops that sell household goods, Chinese stores that sell imported goods from China.
New shops, cafe's restaurants and bars are opening to target the tourist market. There are two markets in Santa Maria, one along Rua Agusto 15, the other several streets away from the beach. The latter is a larger building occupied by businesses as well as those selling fruit and vegetables. There is also a catering school within the building, they intend opening a small cafe in the near future. Many of the commercials in the building are now occupied. The building has two floors.
Some of the newer food stores are importing items such as brand names of baked beans or mayonnaise. Deli's have some lovely meats and cheeses brought over from Portugal or Italy.
In Espargos, the capital of Sal island you will find more shops, some sell items slightly cheaper than shops in Santa Maria.
There are a range of service providers to carry out work. Some individuals will work on a self employed basis or cash in hand, others will have officially set up their business. It is always best to ask what jobs they have worked on.
There are a few main suppliers in Santa Maria that will sell tools or provide key cutting services as well as paint, paint brushes etc.
There are others that can also carry out bigger jobs such as painting a block of apartments, whether they have all the equipment to do this will need further enquiry.
You may like to shop online, from Sal or for friends to bring you items out when they visit you.
