Walmart stores in Mexico
Out of the more than two thousand stores run by the company in Mexico, Walmart hypermarkets offer the most extensive range of products, from fresh produce to general merchandise. In contrast, Superama supermarkets, also part of Walmart Mexico, focus exclusively on pantry and household needs. Meanwhile, Sam's Club, a warehouse retailer accessible by membership only, sells higher-cost goods like electronics and jewelry in addition to wholesale groceries and food products. Walmart also runs a highly popular chain of discount stores through its subsidiary Bodega Aurrerá.
Among leading supermarkets in Mexico, the net annual income of Walmart de México has far exceeded that of its main competitors, Soriana and Chedraui. Combined, these two companies make up roughly a third of the leading companies' supermarket sales in Mexico, while Walmart brings in a decisive majority. Chedraui aims for a significant online presence with its heavy use of advertisements, accounting for nearly half of digital ad spending across the industry.
