torreon, coah – The wholesaler Costco began construction of its new branch in the city of Torreón, Coahuila, which is expected to generate 350 direct jobs and up to 1,500 indirect jobs once the store begins operations.
Together with Costco executives, the governor of Coahuila, Miguel Ángel Riquelme Solís, and the mayor of Torreón, Román Alberto Cepeda, officially announced the construction of the new branch, which will require a total investment of 60 million dollars.
“The entry of Costco is a good indicator for La Laguna and for Coahuila, we are one of the safest states in the country, and one of the most exporting states,” said Governor Riquelme Solís.
Last February, executives of the company held a working meeting with the governor to review the panorama offered by Coahuila for the company to settle in Torreon.
The meeting was attended by Moisés Sáenz, general manager; Mauricio Talayero, vice president of Administration and Finance; and Patricia Quiles, Costco’s assistant director of Real State, among others, who reiterated the importance of the Torreón market, due to the conditions it presents, including its geographic location, connectivity and the purchasing power of the population.
Costco’s project for its shopping center in Torreón represents a significant investment and the creation of 350 direct jobs and 1,500 indirect jobs, with competitive salaries and major medical insurance.
Costco is an international chain of self-service stores, with a Price Club format, exclusively for members with a membership system, offering consumers a wide range of quality items from national and international brands.
