All the shops in Andorra enjoy very flexible opening hours. Some shops open until 9 or 10 pm during peak times such as the All Saints’ Day holiday, Festival of La Puríssima, Christmas, Epiphany, Easter Week, amongst others.
Most shops open from 9 am to 8 pm, Monday to Thursday; from 9 am to 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and from 9 am to 8 pm on Sundays, 361 days a year. They only close 4 days a year: 1st January, 14th March (Constitution Day), 8th September (National Day – Our Lady of Meritxell) and 25th December.
Each shop displays its opening hours clearly and visibly so visitors can make the most of their shopping time.

There are two periods of sales: in the winter from the end of December until the end of February, and in the summer, from the end of June to the end of August. They usually start a few days before the neighbouring countries: Spain and France.

The Andorran traders’ professionalism and honesty is a guarantee of secure shopping in the Principality, but there can always be conflicts arising from misunderstandings. The ACU (Andorra Association of Consumers and Users) and the Government of Andorra, have therefore developed the Arbitral consumption system, an effective formula for out-of-court conciliation which rapidly and simply regulates interaction between the establishments and the consumers in the Principality of Andorra.

Its functions particularly include the following:

  • It identifies the trustworthy establishments.
  • It finds a reply to consumer demands.
  • In the event of complaint, it deals with the situation.
  • It speeds up conflict resolution, while avoiding confrontation.
  • It proposes valid, cheap solutions.

We assure your shopping!

The country’s geographical location, the access limited to two borders and the proven efficiency of the police and customs services have for decades guaranteed citizens great security, and the statistics show an almost non-existent number of incidents and crimes. The reality and the perception that will accompany you will allow you complete tranquillity during your stay.
