THE power cuts that Malaga city centre suffered on Sunday November 1, from 10.30am to 4pm in some areas due to an electrical fault, was ‘truly’ bad for business.
Not only will Endesa lose money from the revenue and have to pay for maintenance crews to repair the faults, but it was a blow to many businesses in the area who were expecting a bonus to autumn trade.
As fate would have it: It was a long weekend and two cruise ships had brought more than 2,600 passengers into port expecting to enjoy the bars café’s and tourist attractions.
Not only did they not spend as much money as they would have liked, what could be more costly in the long run is they possibly take away with them the idea that Malaga was a little dull and unprepared.
Altogether 2,300 local homes and businesses were affected. Endesa reported that 1,500 were from the city centre, and the rest in La Trinidad district.
