Sam’s Club coming to Costa Rica

February 3, 2012

Membership-based, buy-everything-in-bulk, Wal-Mart-owned Sam’s Club is coming to Costa Rica, the daily El Financiero reported Monday.

Wal-Mart owns Maxi Pali, Más x Menos and Palí supermarkets found in Costa Rica, as well as seven Wal-Mart Supercenters in the country. All together, according to information on Wal-Mart’s website, the corporation has 199 stores here and employs approximately 11,900 people. Wal-Mart has more than 550 stores in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, and employs almost 30,000 workers.

Sam’s Club offers shoppers various membership options with yearly fees that grant members access to warehouse-style aisles lined with goods often in bulk quantities. 

El Financiero reported that Wal-Mart will build a Sam’s Club on a property near the center of the eastern San José suburb of Curridabat, northeast of Lomas de Ayarco.
