Think of it this way: OK, with the change to the Euro, shops will be trying to con people with higher prices. But then, I doubt the locals would stand for this, so my advice is to stay away from the more tourist type shops and go for the local Spanish ones. In the tourist shops, a litre of vodka was about €12, but I found a local shop hidden away which was only €6 for the same bottle of vodka!
jokes aside, MOST THINGS are more expensive - really gets me mad.
here are a few e.g.s
Croissants in the local baker
last year: 80 pts
this year: 75 cents - that's a ****ing 50% markup
last year: 7000 pts
this year: 50 euros - that's more than 10% markup.
Beer in Space
last year 1000 pts
this year 8 euros - at least 40% mark up - RIP-OFF
in pacha 10 euros - 60% mark up - ****ing cheek
I am ashamed at what people are charging - serves them bloody right that this is a shit year (business wise). hope the next few are too - ibiza needs to get its nose out of its arse and start delivering quality at a reasonable price, instead of trying to rip everyone off.
