The Robe Supermarket is open 7 days a week except for Xmas day. It closes at 6.30pm in winter and 7.30pm in summer. In the summer the Supermarket is very busy so it may be wise to bring enough provisions to get through your first night and go shopping the next morning.

If you intend to arrive after 8.30pm please think about eating before you arrive at Robe as most Restaurants/Hotels serve til about 8.30. (The Chinese may still be open if arriving late)
