The Kinépolis retail park which we reported on several years ago seems to be coming to fruition at last, well… December 2010, if we are lucky.
This new construction should commence in March 2010 next to the Alcampo supermarket and it’s about time that supermarket had a little competition too!
The company behind the scheme who are spending ten million euros on it, Bogaris, even have a short paragraph on their website (in English) announcing its imminent build project in Motril.
Will we really see a retail park of some 23,500 square meters comprising 8,500 square meters of shops to include a Lidl supermarket, sports shop and cinema complex plus parking facilities and petrol station?
We do hope that if Lidl supermarket comes to Motril, they will provide adequate security services in their car park area … you have been warned, Lidl in Salobreña seems to have had quite a spate of handbag robberies using the old ruse of ‘there’s something wrong with your car so come and have a look while we rob you.’
Hundreds of youngsters abandon Motril each weekend to find entertainment up in Granada (we probably all would if we had the energy!) and this project will surely be a much-welcomed addition to the town. However, no mention has been made of the bowling alley this time round … that would be a great shame if one weren’t included.
