GIBRALTARIANS spend around £73 million on food shopping in Andalucia each year.

The chamber of commerce found the Rock’s residents regularly hop over the border to splash the cash in Spain’s supermarkets.

A total of £46 million was spent within the Campo de Gibraltar alone in 2013.


  1. Someone isn’t very good at maths at the chamber of commerce.

    73 million pounds is around 100 million euros, and there are 30,000 residents in Gibraltar.

    That means EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM would need to spend over 250 Euros a month every month of the year to hit that number.
