A delight! Whilst short on department stores the towns and villages in Menorca abound with small shops - some 'chic' displaying the latest fashions and baubles and others which take one back to days gone by.
The best hunting grounds for unusual gifts are the boutiques along the waterfront in Mahon and in the back streets of Mahon and Ciudadela. Offical opening times are from 09.30hrs - 13.30hrs and 17.00hrs - 20.00hrs from Monday to Friday and mornings only on Saturdays but many shops, particularly in resorts now choose to open longer. Some don't close at mid-day and often they open on Saturday afternoons and even Sunday mornings.
