    Groceries, Boxing Day, Sundays

    We are arriving Saturday, 12/26, the day after Christmas.

    I know that Aruba celebrates Boxing Day but don't know if it would be celebrated on a Saturday or the Monday that follows, 12/28.

    Will any major grocery stores be open Saturday 12/26, Sunday 12/27, or Monday 12/28?

    Thank you.

    are they open seven days a week?

    Boxing day is always held the day after Christmas. In the past the large supermarkets have always been closed on Boxing Day.
    Cheng's will be open. Cheng's closes at 10 pm (M-S) and 9 pm on Sunday. In the past on Boxing Day as on other Aruba holidays Cheng's closes at 7 pm. Coming from the airport Cheng's is less than 1/2 mile going inland after Super Foods.

    Liquor/wine is located on the last aisle on the right. Super Foods and Ling's will open their regular hours the next day on Sunday.

    We've bought Patron and Veuve in there so I can vouch for premium spirits and champagne.

    We have also bought booze, I mean staples, at Chengs. I think the price was a little better too.

    Can anybody confirm Ling's or Superfood's holiday hours?

    More specifically, the hours on January 2nd...

    I've emailed both stores but... you know... it's Aruba.

    And a search of both websites didn't turn up anything.

    And don't get me started on Facebook... grrrrr....

    Thanks!
