Walmart de México grows for the 6th year in a row more than ANTAD

Walmart de México y Centroamérica (Walmex) grew its sales in 2020 more than the rest of the members of the National Association of Self-service and Department Stores (ANTAD).

During 2020, Walmart de México grew consistently in all its formats and its total revenues were 574,953 million pesos, which represented an increase of 8.0% compared to 2019.

Thus, in 2020, the company increased the growth differential against ANTAD self-services and clubs to equal units by 130 basis points.

From the point of view of Walmart de México, it was able to do this thanks to its «low price proposal and the loyalty» of its customers.

The North and Metropolitan regions had the best performance, followed by the South and Center regions, impacted by the restrictions implemented by local authorities through the epidemic risk traffic light, which remained at the highest risk levels (orange / red) from April to December.
