    Ling and sons
    check out above thread for talk of online Lings shopping

    i could not find their holiday hours of operation on their website.
    could you provide a facebook link or www link?

    if they are open til 6 on the day that you arrive...............you could stop and get some supplies on the way from the airport to your rental home.
    assuming that you land on time and allowing an hour (more than enough) to get thru immigration and luggage. you can be at lings pretty quickly!!
    you will have a rental car?

    my big concern with ordering online and having groceries delivered is REFRIGERATION for perishables. ??

    i gave them a quick call and they are open 12-6 on new years day, lings does have facebook im not sure how to attach link Ill ask my teens when they wake up though lol we do have a rental car unfortunately there was a mix up with Hans and we had to rent from payless last minute 2 weeks ago got one of their last cars tiny for the 4 of us although my husband says he'll fit it all in I think we will be like clowns in a clown car haha, the fellow who looks after the house has offered to pick up our groceries for us and put them in the house so that wont be a problem with refridgeration, but perhaps we will make it to store before 6

    We love shopping at the Price-smart. My sister and I were able to split the membership (they give you 2 cards).i believe we paid about $18 each. There are restaurant discounts available to Price smart cardholders. You can find them on their website under the Advantages program.
