This is probably the most remote Store Check Junkie yet -- retail photos from the Canary Islands. 

I'm infecting all of my friends and colleagues with the Store Check bug, and a friend sent these photos from a recent vacation to the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago off the coast of northern Africa. 

With a total population just over 2 million spread across the islands, there's not a lot of retail. 

My friend sent back photos from Super Dino in Lanzarote and Eurospar in Las Palmas.

This is an interesting package concept for black garlic.

Locally-grown organic sweet potatoes.

In fact, this was one of the better sweet potato displays I've seen across the pond.

Lots of packaged produce options. 


It's no surprise to see prominent Spanish navel oranges. 


Organic and conventional garlic options.
