New WalMart in Reynosa, Tamaulipas Creates Increased Shopping in Mexico

Thu, 2011-12-22

Reynosa, Tamaulipas is often overlooked as a city for booming business and shopping in Mexico.  New buildings, shopping centers, and factories seem to be popping up every week in this city over 1 million people.  

One of the most recent additions to Reynosa, Tamaulipas, is a WalMart that held its grand opening on Black Friday of this year.  The new store is located at the intersection of Boulevard Hidalgo and Avenida El Pasito. This location is ideal as it is between Plaza Real and Plaza Perferico, two of the city’s busiest places from shopping in Mexico. The WalMart is also located near the Anzalduas International Bridge that only just recently started to appear on Google Maps. This will help both locals and tourists find the location. It is also expected to provide jobs for over 250 people. 

WalMart did not start doing business in Mexico until the early 1990s and did not operate under their brand name until February 2000. Today, there are seven WalMart stores in the state of Tamaulipas. Even though this store is very close to the American boarder, sales should not be affected.
