Escazú mall opens final wing set to employ 900 staff

October 30, 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 opened for business, including 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 constructed the Multiplaza, almost all of the 86 stores are expected to be opened in two weeks. The final wing of the 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. The Multiplaza, which opened in 1992, estimates that it sees 120,000 visitors each week.

“We hope that Mulitplaza Escazú will provide us the opportunities to grow and succeed,” 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, which has French origins, hopes to expand from the Multiplaza location, aiming to create three more Costa Rica store locations in the next four years.
