PriceSmart

Experience U.S-style membership warehouse club shopping at one of PriceSmart's 37 locations in Central America, South America and the Caribbean. The Smart Choice From the first time you shop, you'll know that the experience is very different from shopping at a supermarket. Everything, from the selection of our products to the layout of our clubs, is done with our members in mind. High Quality, Low Prices At PriceSmart you will find high quality local and imported merchandise at everyday low prices. We have a team of buyers who carefully select the top brands in each category and negotiate the best price on each item. In other words, we do the comparison shopping so you don't have to! Keeping It Simple We keep our costs down with our "no frills" policy - most of the merchandise is displayed in its original packaging on steel shelves. We handle the products as little as possible from the receiving dock to the sales floor, and as a result we reduce our overhead costs - a savings that we pass on to our members. All Under One Roof At PriceSmart, you'll find everything you need under one roof. Along with high quality groceries and fresh items, PriceSmart offers you brand name merchandise including electronics, computers, home appliances, office equipment, hardware, sporting goods, apparel and more. Our in-club services include rotisserie, fresh bakery, tire center, pharmacy, food court and a photo center in most locations. Currently our warehouse clubs can be found in the following countries: Colombia (6), Costa Rica (6), El Salvador (2), Guatemala (3) Honduras (3), Nicaragua (2), Panama (5), Aruba (1), Barbados (1), Dominican Republic (3), Jamaica (1), Trinidad and Tobago (4), and U.S. Virgin Islands (1).
