El Corte Ingles Tenerife - a prestigious department store in Santa Cruz


El Corte Ingles Tenerife is a huge, prestigious department store, situated on the main Avenida Tres de Mayo in Santa Cruz.


El Corte Ingles Tenerife


This is one branch of a large, Spanish organisation, with stores all over Spain and its flagship branch in Madrid.

Its name meaning, in English, "The English Cut", referring to a style of clothes making, the company first started out as a tailor's shop, back in 1890. By 1940, it had become a corporation. It continuously increased in size and power over the years, including, in 1955, the takeover of the department store chain, Galerias Preciados, which was its only serious competitor.
