Dave and Tracy Parker of Marco Polo in Competa have made some great changes since taking over the management of the shop a couple of years ago. These changes have definitely come to fruition for them and with Christmas approaching they intend the shop to be even bigger and better stocked than before. Either in stock now or will be arriving in time for your Christmas purchases are Christmas cards both singles and boxed can be bought, crackers, decorations for the tree and your home along with wrapping paper, labels, ribbons and advent calendars. Their sweet section, which is also part of their 2 euro range of products, will provide host to Christmas sweets and biscuits, shortbread and of course selection boxes. The 2 euro line was a recent initiative and has proved extremely successfully and the section continues to grow and expand. Not only does it consist of sweets but also a range of well known British household products. “Attention Landlords, Letting Agents etc, contact Marco Polo for Welcome Packs of toiletries, etc to save guests having to bring these itmes in their hand luggage” The summer range of dresses will now be replaced with scarves, shawls and gloves, ideal ideas for Christmas presents or just because the colder weather is approaching. Another less festive change is the creation of the library room. The DVD section has been cleaned out and replaced with more books than before and a couple of chairs for you to look for that perfect book in comfort!

It is a lovely shop to visit and browse set in a traditional town house just off the main Plaza Almijara. Dave and Tracy and keen to express their gratitude to all their customers old and new who have supported as they know without them their life in Spain would have been much harder! Along with making a success of Marco Polo, Dave has created a successful singing career since arriving in Competa. Dave brings swing sound to parties, corporate events and weddings all over the U.K and southern Spain. Dave’s signature smoky style harks back to the days of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack and brings the swing age to life...
