A ‘ONE-OF-A-KIND’ second-hand shop has opened in Mijas.

Offering brand new and upcycled furniture, Aladin La Cala has breathed new life into an otherwise barren row of empty commercial units.

Transforming three empty plots in La Cala’s hills, the shop has become the talk of the town.

“We have had a great reception since opening,” says British MD Majid. “The units were dilapidated, without any services or utilities, when we took them over.”

“€100,000 and a lot of hard work later and it is almost unrecognisable.”

With a warehouse and retail store, building has begun on a workshop to upcycle unwanted items on site.

And that’s not all. Christmas stock is being ordered and furniture packs are on the horizon for 2016.

Chug has big plans including a quarterly auction night – the first of which is pencilled in for December. He also wants Aladin La Cala to become the first place in Spain to offer auction nights to under 16s.
