The Pueblo supermarket chain on Wednesday opened a new store at the Aguadilla Mall with an investment of more than $4 million and the creation of 70 new jobs to complete a workforce of 130 employees, company executives confirmed.
The new store features an inventory of more than 33,0000 product varieties in its regular and specialized categories. The fruit and vegetables section boasts more than 450 varieties, 150 of them organic products. It also features a butcher shop offering high quality cuts of meat, and a seafood area. Clients will also find specialized and a gluten-free gourmet variety of products.
“Pueblo will continue to grow as a Puerto Rican company to serve the community with the highest standards of quality, variety, service and savings,” said Ramón Calderón, who purchased the chain in 2007 and has been upgrading its stores islandwide.
Under the concept of “New Lower Prices,” the store offers a “wall of savings” where consumers can find special offers on high consumption products.
The 38,000 square-foot grocery store features specialty coffee stations, shakes and freshly prepared meals such as pizza, pasta, burritos, hamburgers, sandwiches and soups, under the “Village Express” dining concept.
The store also houses the “Vinatería de Pueblo,” featuring a selection of wines and liquors.
