Just got charged €7 for a face mask in the Farmacia on "A"!

When I pointed out that the government recommend price was €0.98 cents a shrug of the shoulders and a so what.

Blatent profiteering. Avoid them if you can.

Hmmmmm! Got reusable washable ones from them for 2.50 each just 3 days ago, no evidence of profiteering there as that seems the correct price.  Never had a problem with them, far from it, from our experience they are friendly and helpful and could only recommend them.

I'm neither lying nor exaggerating 

And I did question the price

And was quite surprised by the dismissive

Attatude show.

Glad you had better experience than I did.

I'm surprised at that, I was given two masks free of charge last week without having to ask for them. The guy in the shop just handed them over to me and was very friendly.

Maybe they have been instructed to charge for them now.

Disposable, single use ones?

Like the irony of buying from a Chinese shop 😷

Did you give him the 7 euros ? Why not  just hand it back. And if he speaks English give him a piece of your mind. The Spanish certainly would if he tried it on them.
