I am planning to open a retail store in Madrid. I operate several in the US, and plan to use the same format. I am having difficulty locating a vendor based either in Spain or the EU for store fixtures.  If I use my current fixture vendor, the cost of shipping will be prohibitive. Does anyone know of a vendor for basic gondola type fixtures either locally or within th EU?

Hi, we live in france and are searching for a quarry/supplier for some worktops. We can't find what we're after here, and wondered if anyone knows of where we could look or who we could ask.  Many thanks Dave.

Hello All, Many people may not be aware of the terrible fate of some of Spain's hunting dogs.  They may be killed heartlessly at the end of the hunting season, sometimes by the slow and agonising method of 'piano-playing' - the dog is hanged by the neck but can just reach the ground.  The piano-playing refers to the click of its toes on the ground as it desperately scrabbles around until it tires and succumbs.  This can take a long time.  Other dogs are insufficiently fed, kennelled and exercised. A Spaniard has started a petition to present to the Spanish government to bring about some long overdue legislation to protect these animals.  Please sign the petition and pass it on to all your friends, Spanish and English, so that the total of 500,000 required signatures can be reached (see link below, you may need to copy and paste into your browser). http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/293/313/901/ Thank you so much.

Hi I am a 19 year old British citizen who has been living in France for the last 8 years, currently as a student on a preparation course for a business school studying in Le Havre, Normandy.I had made plans to spend my summer in Majorca, travelling with a company specialising in providing working holidays to young people however due to an administrative error I was informed at 1 O'Clock on the morning of my flight that I had no accommodation. I am therefore searching for an alternative solution to spend my summer in Spain as I desperately want to improve my Spanish and become trilingual (I already speak fluent Englsh and French). I like to consider myself quite a well rounded human being. What I mean by that is that I can do almost any kind of job. I have gained experience in outdoor and garden work from many long weekends helping my parents, and I worked as a labourer two years ago as a summer job. I have 3 dogs, chickens and once had as many as 5 cats so I am an animal lover and I know how to look after them. I am also good with kids, I have 2 half brothers and 1 disabled half sister and my most recent seasonal job was working in a summer camp. I am also a pretty good cocktail mixer, and I love jobs where I can use my language skills to my advantage and I have been paid for translation jobs on many previous occasions so I will pretty much take most kinds of work. I am not looking to make any profit at this stage of the summer so I will be happy to work for board and lodgings somewhere vibrant and dynamic where I could interact with a lot of Spaniards.  Please get in touch with me quickly as I would like to come to Spain as soon as possible. I am available until the end of August. Thanks for reading Charles

I read this little article about Madrid the other day and thought I'd share it with everyone. It's not the best piece every written but made me glow inside with a bit of pride that visitors take away so much from the city! http://www.dailyiowan.com/2014/07/24/Arts/38463.html
