Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2014 -- The economic measures adopted by the government halted a large amount of investment in the country during 2013. Barriers on imports, the impossibility of sending profits and the strong difference between the official and illegal currency exchange market negatively impacted department store retailers like Falabella. In 2013, the leading chain in mixed retailers suspended the opening of its 12th store in Argentina, which was going to be located in Bahia Blanca, southern Buenos Aires. The uncertainty about the future of the economy in Argentina is limiting the investments of retailers in the country.
Falabella is the leading mixed retailer in Argentina, accounting for sales of ARS1,583 million in 2013 and having 13 stores located in the most important provinces of the country. This Chilean chain opened its first store in Argentina in 1993 in the province of Mendoza and Falabella also has its own card called CRM which offers important discounts and bonuses. According to industry sources, more than 30% of Falabella sales are made with the CRM card.
