Updated June, 2010 and again April 2015.
For those of you coming here to find which supermarkets are open on Sunday in Milan, well, now, most of them are. However, one that is guaranteed to be open every day (including Sundays), except 2 days (Christmas Day and Easter Day) is Esselunga in Viale Piave. Also, from what I understand, one that is open almost 365 days of the year is the supermarket at Central station (Stazione Centrale)
Now on to the original post ……..
Actually, that’s not true. Until recently, all the supermarkets in Milan were closed on Sunday. Coming from the UK, this seemed very strange, but you get used to anything.
