First stone laid for new Soriana Supermarket in Tulum

Tulum, Q.R. — A new business in the seaside town of Tulum has begun construction that will create over 500 jobs. On Friday, the first bricks were laid for the construction of a new Soriana supermarket.

The President of the Soriana Group, Ricardo Martín Bringas, visited Tulum to lay the first stone of the up and coming Soriana Hiper supermarket. Tulum Mayor Diego Castañón met with Bringas for a photo opp during his visit.

Bringas said the new supermarket for Tulum is part of an expansion plan for the group who are focused on both building new and remodeling its older stores.

“It is a very special project first because we generated a very important commitment with the mayor since we started talking about the investment opportunity in this municipality and the prosperity that it brings,” he said.

The new supermarket is being built at kilometer 0.5 on the Tulum-Cobá highway and will have a large shopping gallery, self-serve checkouts, covered parking and offer more than just basic products, he said.
