One of the readers of the site has contacted me asking about supermarket delivery services.

I know that if you buy stuff in Mercadona you can make arrangements for the the items to be delivered to your home. Also, I have seen the Mercadona mini-van driving around town. However I have never used the service myself.

Has any reader used the service and got any views on what it is like? Also, any idea of whether they deliver to the lakes area of Almerimar?

Having been prompted by the query I have had a poke around on the internet. You can see the registration form for Mercadona online services here (in English). The page also includes a link to a contact form where you can check whether Mercadona deliver to your area.
