New state-of-the-art €6 million Alphamega hypermarket coming to Paralimni

The Environmental Department has issued a positive opinion on the construction and operation of the new €6 million Alphamega hypermarket in the Municipality of Paralimni.

According to the data presented to the Authority, the estimated cost of the project, owned by the company C.A. Papaellinas Emporiki Ltd, is expected to reach six million euros, while the construction works of the supermarket are estimated to last 12 months.

It is noted that as the CEO of Alphamega Hypermarkets, George Theodotou mentioned in an interview with InBusinessNews, in the context of ‘IN Business Forecasting 2024,’ within the year work will begin on the construction of two more hypermarkets in Zakaki and Paralimni, aiming to be operational by 2025.

The goal is also to start construction work on a new hypermarket in Engomi within 2024, and which will be built on a piece of land opposite the existing Alphamega.


Four-level building

Regarding the new Alphamega Hypermarket in Paralimni, as stated in the Environmental Impact Assessment Study, the proposed project concerns a single commercial development consisting of a four-level building with a basement, ground floor, mezzanine and one floor, parking for 106 cars (including five places for people with disabilities) and four additional spaces for bicycles, as well as outdoor green spaces.

More specifically, the proposed commercial development is to include the following uses:

  • Basement
    - Parking spaces (51 + 2 for people with disabilities = 53)
    - Storage spaces
    - Utility spaces
  • Ground Floor
    -Parking Spaces (50 + 3 for PWD = 53) and 4 spaces for bicycles
    -Loading Spaces (2)
    -Sales Area (includes grill, fish market, butcher and deli -cold cuts/cheeses)
    -Restaurant and Kitchen
    -Restaurant dining areas
    - Auxiliary Spaces
  • Mezzanine
    - Auxiliary and electrical and mechanical areas
  • 1st floor
    -Sales Area
    -Ancillary Areas
    -Ceiling with photovoltaic panels and electrical and mechanical areas

The opening hours

The development's opening hours are expected to be typical for hypermarkets and are set out below:

  • Monday-Friday: 7.30am – 8.30pm
  • Saturday: 7.30am – 8pm
  • Sunday: 8am – 8pm

It is noted that access to the hypermarket will be via 1st of April Avenue and the proposed road that will run parallel to the northern border of block 1151.


According to the architectural plans, the proposed access is expected to be an extension of the public road resulting from the subdivision of the lots (AMX/0467/2010).

As mentioned, moreover, in the Environmental Impact Assessment Study, the project aims to enrich the services and facilities provided to the consumers of the Municipality of Paralimni (locals and tourists) in terms of the retail trade sector and in particular the sale of food and other household products.
