Mail order is not a common form of shopping in Madrid, primarily because in Spain shopping is considered a social and entertaining act. Even when locals decide they’d rather make purchases from home, they usually do so via the Internet and not mail order catalogs. However, a small number of companies mail catalogs, although you generally have to request them first, and they don’t always give a mail-in-order option.

Catalogs can be requested from the following store Web sites: (Youthful clothing primarily for women that reflects contemporary European fashion.) (Cheaply priced, utilitarian furniture.) (Cheap to moderately priced furniture that is more utilitarian than stylish.)
