With an investment of $1 million, the Costa Rican company, Coffee Britt, inaugurated a store called "Rumbo Sur" at the Santiago, Chile airport two weeks ago. The store is 260 square meters, and it is situated next to a 60 square meters mini-market.

In relation to the next store that is expected to open in Antigua by the end of this year, Mercedes Agüero writes in Nacion.com: "In that location, Britt will invest $1.3 million and it will become the owner of the largest commercial venue at the terminal. One of the advantages of this ex-colonial airport is that it receives direct flights from London which have much larger planes than those that arrive at terminals such as Juan Santamaría."
