Sales in Venezuelan malls swell 30%
Stores' representatives informed that despite the gubernatorial election held on Sunday, it was the best weekend of the month.
The executive director of the Venezuelan Chamber of Malls (Cavececo), Claudia Itriago, said she had no information about the sales recorded on Sunday 16. "One business owner may have reported a good day for sales, yet this does not mean it was a good day for all. Many people visited the malls. I cannot tell it was the best sales day in the Christmas season, though."
She added, "Sales have been very active since November." Nevertheless, Itriago stated that she has not been authorized to provide further details on sales during the period.
At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis. Whether it was hopping on the subway, finding directions, playing waiting games at public agencies, eating whatever he could and sleeping wherever he could, Guerrero senior had been wandering the streets for 60 days, and thanks to "the boys" he found some sort of relief by way of helping hands.
