Supermarkets in Holyhead

I and my family are heading over to North Wales again this year for our holiday. We'll be arriving into Holyhead mid-afternoon on a Saturday and heading up the coast to Flintshire. However, I was hoping to stop and to some grocery shopping at Holyhead, in case the supermarkets are closed when we reach our destination.

Can anyone tell me, which supermarkets would be the easiest to get to - are there any on the outskirts of Holyhead, and on the side of the town leading to the coast road?

There's a Tesco branch at Holyhead, on the Penrhos Industrial Estate which is open until midnight on Saturdays. Use store locator for more details (and to check whether an alternate store with suitable opening hours is available nearer your destination): http://www.tesco.com/storelocator/

Other UK supermarket chains such as Asda, Morrisons and Sainsburys will have similar store locator functions online.

Netto is right in front of you as you cross the bridge towards town from the port and you pass several supermarkets off the A55 towards Flintshire. There is even a Dunnes in Bangor if you believe Google maps (but I don't). We generally use Morrisons at Colwyn Bay.

If you want a supermarket easy to get to then Tesco bangor is by the side of the A55 road . Cross the Britania bridge and take the 2nd exit which is as you go down an incline to the valley. Tesco is right there 100yds toward Bangor town.
