Comercial Mexicana

Comercial Mexicana (colloquially known as La Comercial or La Comer) is a Mexican hypermarket group, which features stores similar to those owned by Carrefour in France or Wal-Mart in the United States. It is part of the Controladora Comercial Mexicana Group which also co-owns the local Costco warehouse franchise, Sumesa stores, City Market stores, Alprecio stores and Restaurantes California. Comercial Mexicana is the third-largest supermarket chain in Mexico as of 2009. The first store, which opened in Mexico City in 1930, primarily sold textile products.

Comercial Mexicana has different retail formats, with the general stores branded as Comercial Mexicana, the larger stores as Mega Comercial Mexicana and its smaller facilities as Bodega Comercial Mexicana. Many of its general stores are connected to a shopping mall with competing businesses surrounding. An example is Plaza Río in Tijuana, Baja California, which has Comercial Mexicana as an anchor store but also has a traditional department store and smaller specialty stores selling items that can be purchased in Comercial Mexicana.
