Supermarkets Amigo announced today that it invested $ 7.8 million in the remodeling of its 12 stores around the island, with the aim of improving the shopping experience of its customers.
As part of the renovation, the stores in the supermarket chain have new paint and signage on the exterior and interior, as with a new mini deli area, refrigerators with fresh cut fruits and a greater variety and quantity of merchandise, including products local. The fruit and vegetable department has also been updated to facilitate the purchase of these products, many of which are harvested on the island.
The remodeling of the stores includes the incorporation of new gondolas, counters, signage, “Scan and Go” terminals – a technology that accelerates the customer payment process – and LED lighting system in all areas to continue strengthening the environmental commitment that the company has, it was indicated.RELATED
“Through this multimillion-dollar investment, we are not only providing our customers with more modern, comfortable and enjoyable facilities that make the purchase process more appropriate for their sponsorship, but also reaffirm our intention to continue contributing to the creation and retention of jobs and boost commercial activity to contribute to the economic development of Puerto Rico, ”said Iván Báez, director of Public and Government Affairs of Walmart Puerto Rico, the parent company of Supermercados Amigo.
Báez added that, to celebrate the renewal of the chain, they will grant a corporate donation of $ 1,000 for each supermarket to support the management of different non-profit organizations in the municipalities where the stores are located.
In addition, a communications campaign was developed that will include guidelines in traditional and digital media to inform about the main changes in the chain, with the emphasis that stores will be ready for consumers to stock up on Christmas products, Báez added. .
