Apolónia Supermarkets, one of the Algarve’s most successful supermarket chains, plans to open the “biggest and most modern” outlet yet in Lagoa this summer. With building work currently taking place between the main roads into Carvoeiro and Sesmarias, the project represents a 9 million investment and promises to create 100 new jobs in the municipality. The move to Lagoa was “an obvious choice”, thanks to “a stable resident and non-resident population which appreciates a variety of products, quality and service”, according to founder Avelino Apolónia. The new supermarket will have its usual products and sections, including the popular fish counter and wine section, alongside some new ranges. Opened in 1983 as a family business, Apolónia Supermarkets has shops in Almancil and Galé (Albufeira), with plans to open a fourth store in Lagos once a suitable location is found.
