The construction of this new Distribution and Services Center will allow ECONO Supermarkets a more accurate strategic planning regarding the inventory of products available to consumers. On the other hand, the center will help in the export project of local products and ECONO brand to markets such as the Caribbean and strategic points in the United States, where there is a greater concentration of Puerto Ricans, who know and prefer the private brand ECONO.
The new facilities will have 419,000 square feet of construction – doubling the storage capacity it currently has. These new facilities will include the largest refrigerated warehouse in Puerto Rico with 135,000 square feet and 40 feet in height. The dry warehouse will occupy some 214,000 square feet and the administrative office, workshop, utilities and other areas will surpass 50,000 square feet.
