    I can assure you parking probably won't be a problem either.

    Jumbo must be doing something right; the one on Luperon frequently has a full parking lot, and it hold hundreds of cars.

    They also have 62 check out counters.
    i hope you are right.

    Agreed - you know where we live, and we drive all the way to Jumbo Luperon about once a month for a big shopping trip. By the time you reach the checkout you need a nap from all the walking. Since my knee surgery, I'll be looking for one of those ride on thingys next time.

    absolutely right. i heard about all the good stuff they are supposed to have, and made the trip to Santiago to get some.

    i didn't.

    The problem with JUMBO in Santiago is they are too far off from where the money is. Hence no business for imported/expensive stiff, equals less desirable merchandise. I was there yesterday and if you go to meat and veggie section you can smell and see the difference from currently popular stores in center of town. The row of non fresh veggies/fruit and the god awful smell on meat section alone made us never to shop there unless we don't want to stop by Nacional/Bravo for wines and minor stuff.

    The only reason we go to Colina Mall is for the little Taiwanese spicy noodle soup that my wife and I enjoy. Only if there's a place that serve equally decent spicy noodle soup, we wouldn't venture into that part of the town.

    it seems that the construction in POP may be a plaza comercial, not just jumbo:

    ...not to mention Jumbo is poised to snag as customers...... many of the thousands who flock to puerto plata, every week from the cruise ships......maybe PICHARDO has some numbers on that.........

    la sirena has plenty of customers. so does jose luis. they will have to make adjustments but a third competitor will still take a nice share.
