Puebla - With the opening of the third Superama store in the state of Puebla, Walmart of Mexico is demonstrating its confidence in the solid economic growth of the state, said Ivonne Monteagudo, Superama vice president.

During this weeks's opening ceremony of the new Superama store in the La Vista area, Monteagudo said, "Our confidence in the economic growth of Puebla is solid. In the last two and a half years, Walmart has increased its presence in the state by 83 percent, opening 30 stores. At the moment we have locations in 16 cities in the state."

Walmart of Mexico is the country's largest private sector employer and operates stores and restaurants under the names Walmart, Superama, Suburbia, VIPS, Sam's Club and Bodega Aurrerá.

Monteagudo said that with the opening of the new store, Walmart of Mexico is acting on its commitment to create a positive impact in the communities it serves.

"We are proud to provide investments for the state, jobs for the communities of Puebla, and development for local providers," she said. "We trust in the leadership of Governor Mario Marín Torres and that is why we continue to expand in Puebla."

Monteaguado thanked the governor for his continued support of businesses in the state and for fostering an inviting climate for investment.

Also speaking at the Superama inauguration, Governor Marín Torres emphasized that the store had created 130 new jobs and helped to give certainty to producers in the state. The investment in the store was 90 million pesos, and about 100 construction workers were employed during the store's construction, he said.

Governor Marín Torres said that Puebla stands out as a safe state, providing an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, where new investments are welcome.
