With an investment of nearly 750 million pesos, La Paz Mayor Esthela Ponce Beltran and investor John C. Pentz at the ribbon cutting ceremony last week inaugurated the new The Shoppes at La Paz. The new mall is located near the north exit of the city, across from Wal-Mart and beside Home Depot on boulevard Agustin Olachea (Las Garzas).
Pentz explained that the mall is located on 72 thousand square meters and will include one more anchor store to compliment Liverpool, 126 retail spaces that will include 13 fast food stalls in the food court and 6 sit down restaurants. A second Cinepolis movie theater with eight screens is planned, as are recreational areas.
The Shoppes at La Paz will become La Paz’s first and only destination mall, adding a mix of local businesses with high-end franchises from Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey, many of which don’t have a presence yet in Baja California Sur.
La Paz Mayor Esthela Ponce Beltran said she was honored to be able to cut the ribbon for The Shoppes at La Paz, which gives a new face to La Paz for the community at large and to those who visit. It is a new opportunity for La Paz to grow and create new job opportunities.
Also on hand representing the State government was Joel Avila Aguilar, Secretary of Economic Development. He said that it is a great day for the state of Baja California Sur as it is proof that the state offers excellent conditions for investment and new business opportunities.
With the opening of The Shoppes at La Paz, Avila Aguilar said, “I am optimistic for the future of the state. All interests want to continue to promote Baja California Sur as a place where there are favorable conditions for investors and an environment for peaceful labor.”
The Shoppes at La Paz is projected to bring 1000 new jobs to the capital. Construction of the mall was started in the summer of 2011 and was officially opened to the public on the 27th of April, 2012.
