In 2015, we had over 3,000 operating units, after opening 97 new ones: 74 in Mexico and 23 in Central America. We reached 18 new cities and were present in a total of 589 communities.
We conducted ongoing efforts to find efficiencies for our internal processes that would lead to meeting our unit expansion plan. Throughout the year, thanks to a wide coverage in the six countries where we operate, we served 2.1 billion customers.
Moreover, we invested in maintenance and remodeling projects so our units could be in good operating condition, adding to our customers’ positive shopping experience. In 2015 alone, this sort of investment increased significantly and, as a consequence, we were able to offer facilities with greater comfort and safety. Additionally, we kept incorporating sustainable technology, as part of our commitment to the community and the environment.
