Supermarket hours in Khao Lak

Hi

We are arriving at Khao Lak on the 7th August at 7.30pm and would like to call into the supermarket before going to J W Marriott, but are unsure if it will be open, can someone please help with there hours. Also will there be any thing open for us to eat on the beach, we are staying for 10 days, we stayed there last year and eat on the beach most nights and were hoping to do the same this year.

Thanks

Most beach restaurants close at 22:00. ( now there are 4 Beach Restaurants and 1 Pizza in Front of the Hotel open)

I think the Super markets also. Were there yesterday at ~ 20:00 ... all open...

The main supermarket, the Nang Thong Supermarket in Bang La On on the way through, is open until 10pm as are others and have greater range and cheaper than the one near the JWM.

My experience with Nang Thong Supermarket (last July) was they operate on 'Thai time' i.e. the posted hours are 'flexible'. While the sign may state they are open until 22:00, the reality is they may be closed before 21:00.

That may well be the case in the Wet Season if they consider not enough custom to remain open for but is certainly not the case in High Season.

Product lines are very limited at the supermarket at the moment. If you are wanting snack foods eg chips, nuts and biscuits Iwould consider bring these from home. The only things we could get tonight were prawn crisps of which there were 2packs on the shelf . Drinks and house hold commodities were in plentiful supply. The supermarket it self looks it will take a few weeks to finish

There are more supermarkets other than the Nang Thong. Walk north towards the Sands and The Khao Lak Supermarket is excellent with a wide variety of lines and wines/beer/spirits. There are several 711s which stock snacks.

Khaolak Supermarket is currently closed and won't reopen until July 28.

Great selection of products when it is open.

I was at Nang Thong Supermarket yesterday (July 25) and can report they now seem to have almost all their usual stock 'out back' in the temporary quarters.
