Federico Baltodano, Real Estate Portfolio Project Manager, told Elobservador.cr that "... We are sure that this platform will add to the efforts we have been making to support all our tenants in the midst of this national emergency.

According to the platform's developers, shipments would be processed within 4 to 6 days, depending on the geographic area.

This is not the first virtual mall that competes in the Costa Rican market, since in July Avenida, a digital platform that initially concentrated 21 brands of restaurants and clothing, began operations, and the developers' plans are to bring together 150 stores by the end of 2020.
