Piks Club opens
A new store, resembling a smaller version of a Sam’s Club or Costco, has opened for business just south of Bucerias.
The Piks Club “warehouse store” is located in front of the Mega supermarket on Highway 200.
According to co-owner Ricardo Viso, it is the prototype model of a smaller warehouse store chain, mixing the variety and prices of the larger Costco-type stores with the convenience and personal service of the corner store.
While a normal warehouse store would have 4,000 or more SKU’s, Piks Club will start out with about 1,000, says merchandise manager Juan Jose Diaz.
The business plan includes building five more Piks Clubs next year in areas where there is a sizeable population of full- and part-time foreigners, such as Lake Chapala/Ajijic and San Miguel Allende.
