“We are committed to providing our new partners with a comfortable and modern environment that characterizes us, with a wide variety of quality products at competitive prices, but also, we have worked hard to build a building that allows us to reduce our energy consumption,” explained Marco Torres, manager of PriceSmart Costa Rica.
