Grupo Axo, one of the largest retailers in Latin America, closed the third quarter in a duality. The company has concluded the period with a 28% increase in its sales thanks to the opening of new points of sale, while its net profit has plummeted 64%.
The company’s sales have reached 3.1 billion Mexican pesos (162.6 million dollars), compared to 2.4 billion Mexican pesos (127 million dollars) in the same period of the previous year.
