Interesting article in Sur in English about the slow demise of Torremolinos town centre and the drift of the "chain" stores to out of town areas. services.surinenglish.com/virtual/20140131/ (page 6 or 7) Seems like the same issues that many towns throughout the UK are haing/have had. Did Manferga relocate or close? Many of the small shops down the steps of C San Miguel down to the front were closed on our last visit. Admittedly late december, but many with for sale signs in the window.
Although there did seem to be a few more "new" shops at the top end of San Miguel, around the area where Mango used to be.
Whats with all the "frozen yogurt" shops and there must be five or six "fishy feet" type places.
