The new store, designed under the “Green Club” concept, will generate 200 direct jobs and 150 indirect during the construction process.

“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.

The new store will sit on 24,000 square metres (258,000 square feet), of which 16,000 square meters will be building and 8,000 green areas and parking for 306 vehicles.

The “Green Club” concept is based on architecture that includes an intelligent system of air conditioning and lighting that will reduce the consumption of electric power, LED lights for the refrigerator doors and skylights, allowing the maximum use of natural light.
