Default Space Heaters on sale in any of the Supermarkets ?

Anyone seen any electric space heaters of any kind for sale in any of the supermarkets yet ? [ I am nowhere near a Worten branch ].

Whole load of electrical stuff in Continente yesterday but no heaters. Perhaps it's too early for them ?

Any pointers gratefully received.

Yeah but I am nowhere near a Worten, and was hoping to get some heat today or tomorrow. Flat is top floor so quite chilly when it's cold.
tried LIDL - they have only a pointless tiny heater 0.5 kw.. Need 2kw at least.

They deliver... about €5-6 I think. Pretty quick as well.

VRSA = Vila Real de Sto Anto'nio. Far eastern Algarve. Have tried LIDL and Continente supermarkets. Will try Intermarche' later today, and report back if anything useful there.

Worth having a look at the Confort website, they have a store in Tavira near the train station.

Take a look at INFRARED Heaters as well, they are effective and becoming very popular due to much lower power consumption.
This one is from EUROM.

Check over the border, probably more choice and cheaper....
