Hi
Dear son and his bride are heading to AUA for their delayed honeymoon on Dec 24.

They arrive late afternoon on the 24th.

Grocery stores will be closed when they arrive.
Stores will be closed on 25th.
Will stores be open on the 26th?

They may end up bringing some food with them in their suitcases :confused:

I'm pretty sure that supermarkets were open on the 26th. Are they staying at La Cabana?

I can pickup anything they need at the market.

Yes, Kathy and Mark are coming. We are travelling together Dec. 19. Mark is staying only a couple of weeks. I was to return with Kathy on Jan. 16 but I think I am going to change my ticket and stay with Marlene for another week.

I'm at the market almost every day so there is no problem picking up whatever they need. It will be nice to see Kevin again and meet Becca.

Hello, I see on Ling & Son's website that they are closed New Years Day and the day after. I can't find anything on the other grocery stores. Does anyone know Certified and Hong King's holiday hours?

Thanks!

We get in on New Year's Day. I see that Ling's is closed both New Years and the day after. Are the other grocery stores open on the 2nd? Is there anywhere else that will be open, to pick up a few things (like liquor stores ;))?

THANK YOU!

Duh, I have been searching all over the internet looking for this answer.... and it was right here all the while!

Of the 3 that are open on Jan. 2 - Kong Hing, Super Food or Certified...which one is the best? I know everyone on this board seems to prefer Lings. What store comes in 2nd place?

My preferences: Super Foods then Kong King. I don't like Certified.

i prefer certified
my opinion that the hon king downtown near the renaissance is pretty sketchy.
i have never been in the hong king/super food on the main drag near lings.

I'm probably one of the few that is not a Ling & Sons fan. It reminds me too much of the U.S. and the prices are higher on most things. We usually go to Kong Hing (the one between downtown and the low rise hotels) but we also like Super Foods (fun Dutch items) and Certified (Certified is more warehouse-like - we don't go there very much anymore since it seems like Kong Hing has everything we need and has a better selection of wine/champagne now.)
