Yes the supermarkets have fixed prices. The other smaller shops have fixed prices as well -not sure about if you can barter in them but know you cant in the supermarkets. It tends to be the market ans clothing shops etc that you can barter or find some kind of deal. Im not that confident about bartering but like to see other people doing it, it can be entertaining. :)

Supermarkets just the same as here in the UK - prices are fixed. Most of the other shops also have prices displayed on their goods, but you can try bartering if you want to - it's worth a try! I'm married to a man who will barter for anything - home or abroad - so it's always worth giving it a go!

Certainly, as firefly says, in the markets, haggling is expected - and if all else fails, walk away - if they want the sale, they will follow you!

We often shop in the Greenhouse clothes shop in the square and they have fixed prices. However, the more you buy the better the prices become and when you become a regular customer they give you discounts. They sell good quality goods which wash well and they will also do alterations for you if needed.
