Despite the arrival of large supermarket chains in Costa Rica, visits by consumers to small local stores seems to be increasing.
This was revealed by a survey of 230 people drawn from all over the country by the Asociacion GS Uno. Of those interviewed at the exits of the major supermarket chain stores, 60% said they make purchases in small stores and 45% admit to doing so daily.
The National Chamber of Retailers opened an office to assist its members with official processes and to provide advice.
An article in Elfinancierocr.com reports that Daniel Richmond, president of the Chamber of Retailers, "endorsed the effort made by the trade organization and the MEIC to support initiatives that favor small businesses, he also highlighted the fact that retailers must stop thinking individually, and adjust their attitude to achieve economies of scale and the vertical and horizontal integration of the sector.
