El Corte Inglés Shopping Center
El Corte Inglés is one of the best known department stores found on the island of Tenerife. The store sells top of the range brands and high quality goods and is a great place to spend a little time searching for a bargain. Remember taxes on the island are a lot lower than anywhere else in Europe so if you do find those designer labels you've been looking for, then they will be a lot cheaper than elsewhere.
El Corte Inglés can be found on Avenida de Tres de Mayo in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. There is a supermarket in the store where you'll find lots of gastronomic delights as well as wines and alcohols which are all very reasonably priced. The store also has a great selection of home ware and some wonderful gift ideas for locally produced souvenirs to take home with you.
There is also a great cafe in El Corte Inglés. One thing to bear in mind is that there is another El Corte Inglés that situated in the centre of the capital of Santa Cruz and this branch specialises in perfumes as well cosmetics so if you have been searching for that favourite scent you like, this is the place to find it and again it will be at a fraction of the price you would have to pay elsewhere in Europe.
Shopping in Tenerife is a real treat because everything is that much cheaper whether you're looking for clothes, jewellery, electrical goods or anything else you may need, you know you'll find what you're looking for when you visit places like El Corte Inglés for a real Canarian shopping treat.
Being one of the most famous department stores on the island as well as on mainland Spain means that all the goods and produce found in El Corte Inglés is always top quality.
