The new store would be number 42 point of sale for the company (that includes the Vindi mini marts), 19 of which are in the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM).

Diego Alonso, Commercial Vice President of Auto Mercado, explained to Elobservadorcr.com that “… Construction began a month ago and ‘the opening of this service point will invest about US$2 million in equipment and will allow us to generate direct employment, more support to our suppliers and a greater commercial dynamic to the area.
