Yucatan is “in the sights” of Walmart, a commercial transnational company that has decided to invest $1.2 billion USD in the construction of distribution centers in the Peninsula to improve the supply of stores of five brands operating in the area. Yucatan would have at least one of these logistics centers.
The moves are expected to generate about 10 thousand jobs in the region.
The director of Corporate Communication Walmart Mexico and Central America, Antonio Ocaranza Fernandez, reported that the group has a line of five businesses: in Yucatan they already have 39 commercial spaces and this year they will open their store number 40 in Mérida, which will involve an investment of 3.4 billion pesos and more than 3,500 direct jobs.
This year they will begin to “probe” with local and municipal authorities the location of spaces for the installation of this infrastructure. Its objective is to exercise $1.2 billion USD in the next 10 years, and to generate 10 thousand jobs. With these logistics spaces, the aim is to reduce times and costs in the supply process.
Ocaranza Fernández said that the company has a presence in the state through six brands: Sam’s Club, with three stores; Superama, one; Walmart, six; Bodegas Aurrera, ten; My Bodega Aurrerá, 11; Bodega Aurrerá Express, five, and Suburbia.
He said that soon they will sell the country’s Suburbia stores to Liverpool, as in 2013 they did with the VIP’s and three other brands to Alsea, a consortium that manages some of the top food franchises.
Its presence in Yucatán began in 1995 with the opening of the first price club, and the last one was a Walmart in the area of Altabrisa; Its presence in the entity grew significantly, 30 percent from 2012 to 2015, and during that time it opened 12 businesses. They have presence in 14 municipalities and do not rule out continuing to reach other areas.
The investment project focuses on its logistics distribution network to supply its stores in the coming years in the area of the Peninsula, as they consider they will have a significant growth in the coming years.
