Wal-Mart-owned supermarket chain Más x Menos opened a new branch in Santa Ana, southwest of San José, last Friday and will hire 76 employees from the surrounding area.
“It’s a great joy for Más x Menos to inaugurate this new point of sale in the Santa Ana canton, a zone that has experienced large commercial and urban development in recent years,” said Eugenio Dobles, format director for the Más x Menos division of Wal-Mart Central America in Costa Rica. “With this opening, we look to bring our products and the best prices to this community.”
The Santa Ana location is the 24th Más x Menos store opened since the supermarket chain first set up shop in 1960.
Measuring 1,395 square meters, the supermarket will offer 18,000 different products, from fruits and veggies to a selection of meat and household goods.
The new store is 400 meters north of the Red Cross in Santa Ana. Its hours are 7 a.m. to midnight,Monday to Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays.
