Cristina Ronski, Commercial Vice President of Walmart Mexico and Central America, told that "... Building a Walmart in Santa Ana means opening one of the most eagerly awaited stores in the area. We believe El Salvador is a good place to invest, so we keep bringing our low prices to the entire population to improve their quality of life. This would be the sixth Walmart of El Salvador and will be part of the constant process of expansion that all our formats have in the Salvadoran territory."

The article adds that "... When the new branch was opened, this would be the number 101 of the Walmart chain in El Salvador, which for more than a decade has installed in the country other formats such as Maxi Despensa, Despensa de Don Juan and Despensa Familiar."
