This is a new column for Manzanillo Sun. It is my hope that we have many more arrivals to report to you than we have departures.
The Bahia Deli in Santiago is now carrying fresh donuts.
There is a new dress shop in the Manzanillo Plaza in the space formally occupied by the silver shop that is carrying large sizes. I checked and large to the Mexicans is not the same as large to Americans or Canadians, but still, they have some very nice things.
If you are looking for Tupperware you can ask Bricio at his sidewalk restaurant in Las Brisas near the crucero. His wife has a good inventory in their home near the restaurant.
The construction of the new casino at the site of the former Nautilus is progressing. No official words yet as to the opening date.
Sam’s Club – rumors continue to fly about the opening of a Sam’s Club in Manzanillo. The large tract of land behind KFC and across from the IMSS hospital in Salagua has been cleared, so maybe? Also we are told it is to be near the Camp Verde School! Pick a rumor
If you are looking for baking soda it can be found in Wal-Mart in the pharmacy among the digestion aids also in Commercial in with cleaning products.
The furniture store across from CFE has some interesting pieces made from roots; trees, flower stands, etc.
One of the waiters at Palma Real, Saul, sells hand made bolsas (bags and purses). Made by his wife, they are hand embroidered with ribbon, come in various sizes and would make a really nice Christmas gift.
With the Christmas season now upon us you can find Christmas decorations and other items at Wal-Mart, Soriana, Commercial Mexicana, Waldo’s and many of the little neighborhood stores.
New in Manzanillo!
“Caroli Helados”, swirls, frappes, and ice cream. All made from fresh fruit and yogurt, ice cream, or a combination of the two and made to order. 100% natural and suitable for diabetics using fresh fruit; mango, strawberry, peach, guayaba (guava), kiwi, raspberry, pineapple, and papaya. They also have wonderful smoothies and frapuccinos. Their ice cream parlour is located across from KFC on the back side of “Kiosko” on the outside. I had raspberry ice cream and it was very good although seeming more like a gelato. I would go back again.
If there is something you are looking for and cannot find it, send me an email and if I don’t know where to find it, I will investigate. My email is email@example.com.
