Multiplaza Escazú Opens Final Wing

November 6, 2009

The red ribbon on the final wing of the Multiplaza Escazú was snipped on Monday, allowing shoppers to enter and peruse the last installment of the massive shopping center west of San José.

The final stage of the Multiplaza consists of 86 stores in an area of 100,000 square meters.

As of Monday, only a handful of the 86 stores were open for business. Those included EPK and Baby Boom, which held an inauguration for their children’s clothing stores Monday night.

According to Elisa Rojas, a spokesperson for Grupo Robles, which built Multiplaza, almost all of the 86 stores are expected to be open in two weeks. The final wing of Multiplaza will include such fashion heavyweights as Armani Exchange, Rosa Clara and Massimo Dutti.

According to Rojas, approximately 900 employees will work in the mall’s new wing. Officials of Multiplaza, which opened in 1992, say the complex sees approximately 120,000 visitors weekly.

“We hope that Mulitplaza Escazú will provide us the opportunities to grow andsucceed,” said Cristina Caicedo, general manager of EPK. “It is a good place for us to continue our goals of creating quality products and a fair price.”

EPK, with French origins, hopes to open three more stores in Costa Rica in the next four years.
