The sales are not quite buzzing in Formentera

Winter in Formentera is highlighted by the closure of most of the shops on the island. There are only about a dozen still open offering clothing, footwear and accessories, and these are mostly in Sant Francesc Xavier. While everyone has hung sales signs offering discounts of between 35 and 50 percent, there is little interest from the public.

It seems that the inhabitants have become aware that the opening of large stores in Ibiza and the reduction in vehicle transport costs between islands has made it worthwhile to travel to Ibiza to shop.
