In commerce, a hypermarket is a superstore combining a supermarket and a department store. The result is an expansive retailfacility carrying a wide range of products under one roof, including full groceries lines and general merchandise. In theory, hypermarkets allow customers to satisfy all their routine shopping needs in one trip.


For a second I seriously thought this was a Super Walmart.

For some strange reason people here often find it hard to believe that there are megastores and shopping centers in Latin America. Quaint little mom & pop shops and open air markets may characterize smaller towns but if you visit some of the larger cities in Mexico (for example) there is a lot more to choose from. There’s Chedraui, Mega Comercial, Soriana etc. most of those places are HUGE.
