When we think of vacations, the first things that come to mind are usually the activities like swimming, sunbathing, relaxing, and fun-filled activities. All of which are a vital part of the vacation experience. But for many of us, shopping is high on the list too! Whether it be for groceries, toiletries, or toys for water activities! Sam's Club is an amazing grocery store, with locations across Mexico and America.
What you can purchase:
They offer most of the products that you are used to plus international and special items depending on the season. This particular location has a meat department, clothing department, electronics, bakery, and even a cafe outside the front doors. Some of the more unique items you'll find here, but you won't find at your local store in the U.S. include items like canned pulpo (octopus), gelatin cakes, unique desserts, and more! It's quite fun to walk around the store and see the different kind of inventory they carry.
At the cafe outside, they offer affordable meals and snacks. They actually have more on their menu than a typical Sam's Club in the U.S. would. Choose from hot dogs, pizza, sandwiches, handhelds, salads, pastries, and a variety of beverages. They even have an Icee machine for kids to enjoy a refreshing frozen treat on hot days.
Is Sam's Club in Mexico?
Sam's Club actually has a pretty large presence in Mexico, with 116 Sam's Club locations throughout the country. In fact, Peñasco Sam's Club opened its doors on June 21, 2001. The store is located right on Benito Juarez boulevard, in Colonia Brisas del Golfo, one of the main streets in the city.
