Carrefour and Colsubsidio to create joint drug-store chain

Carrefour is to enter the Colombian drug-store market in alliance with Colsubsidio, the French giant hoping to open 45 outlets in its existing hypermarkets and in those it will be opening this year. The Colsubsidio supermarkets will remain in competition with Carrefour, explains Diana Londono of the former.

The new chain will carry the names of both firms in some form. Colsubsidio registered medicine sales of Peso$183bil last year for a 5.5% national market-share. It boasts 125 drug-stores in Cundinamarca and will look to open another 20 exclusive of the alliance with Carrefour.

Sería interesante saber en qué lugares se venden los productos de Colsubsidio. Solamente en Colombia? otros países? en internet?
