Workers are putting the finishing touches to the construction of what will the country’s largest shopping centre.

QCOSTARICA – The new mall in Alajuela, City Mall, announced November 11, 2015 as the opening date.

Some of the retailers are Forever 21, Aliss, Calvin Klein, Cemaco, Universal and Tommy Hilfiger.

The mall was to have opened this month, October. The delay in the opening was due to the construction of entrance into the mall, that included a 40 metre long, four-lane bridge, to avoid traffic congestion on the major road into Alajuela.
