New bookstore opens in Tres Ríos
A few weeks ago, we reported in this column that the supermarket chain Auto Mercado opened a new $1.8 million store in Tres Ríos, east of San José. Now, Auto Mercado shoppers and book lovers can browse their favorite titles in one place, because Librería Internacional has opened a new bookstore at the Tres Ríos Auto Mercado, on the old highway to Tres Ríos.
The new location was inaugurated Dec. 21, and brings to 13 the total number of Librería Internacional stores in Costa Rica. To find one near you, see www.libreriainternacional.com.
