Default Buying English Cigarettes near Alicante airport?

During our previous visits, we could only find good stockists of English fags in Torrevieja. We will be living in Muro De Alcoy as from January and doubt there will be any stockists there, so does anybody know if one could buy them in bulk near Alicante Airport?

Im sure if you ask your local tabaco shop they would be able to order the brand you want if they dont stock them

Don't forget that the 'english' brands will have been made in Spain, my brother in law never takes any back as he doesn't really like them, even the brand he normally smokes in the UK.

Superking Blacks and was thinking of buying them once per month, as I will be passing through Alicante Airport that often!

They sell them in the airport on the way out to the UK, but not on the way into Spain (so far as I know).

Regards,

Peter

Our brand even if it is made in Spain seem good enough to us and at around 30 euros per 200 seemed good value (before sterling dropped through the floor).

Peter

You get even better life value and cash value if you would start a news years resolution and give up smoking.

peter, if you ask the tobacconist in muro she will try to get the brand you are looking for. be aware that tobcconists shut at 2:00pm on Staurdays and don't open again until monday

when you arrive in Alicante, there is a tobacco shop near the carpark opposite the arrivals hall

Whenever we return through Alicante airport, we always stop off at the next town. It is called Torrellano. It is a small town, but you can get Cigarettes and such like there.
The main reason we stop off there is to have a MDD prior to reaching the Airport.
