Hi all

Went to Urcal the other day to get our gas bottles and found the supermarket closed, looks like its permanently closed, wondering if anyone knows what's going on.  We asked in the bar but they said it wasn't possible to get them anymore.

Hi

Coviran shop closed around New Year as it wasn't being used enough.

We got 2 gas bottles about 3 weeks ago from the bar, maybe they were just running them down. Although beginning of week we saw loads being unloaded

Oh ok.  We saw a sign saying they were on holiday and reopening on the 21Jan, I think.   But they must have decided not to open at all.  When I went in the bar,  the guys weren't the ones that are usually in there.  So wondered if they'd sold the bar too.

We live in Urcal and we usually use the "gas man cometh" who delivers Friday afternoon around 4-5.30, he's Spanish but very helpful as in he'll drop you're Gaz bottles where you want them. Cost of bottles vary slightly, when we go over to Albox we swap the bottles, the Orange ones at the garden centre by Longo. Coviran did close around new year, we've been told that it opens on Sunday for a few hours but don't know for sure. Whether Gaz bottles are available again can't say.  Bar staff have swapped around but mostly the same.

Ok. Thanks for the info.  We did get some from the builders yard in Santa Maria.  So will get them from there in the future.  But good to know other alternatives.  We have the old style bottles which are hard to come by, and we tried to swap at the Repsol garage in HO but they wouldn't.   So not sure what will happen when they get rid of the old bottles altogether.

Hi, by "old bottles" what do you mean ? There are a different design of canister "top", which is a large blue plastic cover as opposed to the original two piece steel handles which we've swapped and changed. 

We've had the silver aluminium ones as well but these were more expensive.

It's the two steel handles ones we have.  But we can still get them in Santa Maria, so we'll deal with it when it comes.  Thanks for the advice though.  It was just that Urcal shop was closer for us.
