The Maragos supermarket stocks a good supply of:
Some essential household goods
The Maragos supermarket, especially in the winter, is a bit of a community hub where locals exchange news. It's next door to the island's post office where, because there are no postmen on the island, everyone collects their post from, so it's convenient to pop into the supermarket after for shopping and a chat.
Georgia Supply Boat
As the operators of the Georgia Supply Boat, there's always a buzz going on especially on delivery days when everyone is popping in and out to collect their paperwork.
For home owners, the Georgia Supply Boat is essential as it's really the only way to get large bulky household items such as furniture & white goods to the island.
Phone, Email Orders & Home Delivery
I personally really appreciate being able to email the Maragos Supermarket with my shopping list in the morning and one of the boys will have it delivered to my house within a couple of hours!
The Maragos Supermarket does not keep a delivery mule. Instead they have assistants who carry your shopping for you. (So long as it's humanly possible to carry! And also no more than level streets and a maximum of 100 steps to your house from the shop.) This is a free service if you order more than €30 worth of shopping. If your house is further away or just too much for someone to physically carry, then you will need to arrange & pay for your own muleteer to collect.
Residents: Obviously, the first time you have a delivery to your house, you will need to have been into the shop and ensured that they are happy to give you an account (so you can pay when you are next in town) and to show them on a map exactly where your house is. Once set up, you can then phone or preferably email your order (using the form below) in the morning to get delivery later in the afternoon.
Holiday Makers: For holiday makers staying in a self-catering rental house, you can call into the supermaket, select and pay for your shopping. Then one of the assitants will come with you to your holiday house helping you to carry your shopping.
