This new complex (which is a spin-off of the successful Momentum Lindora in Santa Ana) is now open, across from the
Curridabat Walmart. It contains (or soon will contain) contain a shopping center, restaurants, theater, office center, medical tower, and hotel...along

In the continuing trend of the East side of San JosÚ catching up to Escaz˙, a Hooters Restaurant/Bar
recently opened in San Pedro (just a few blocks north of Mall San Pedro).
Of course, there are some who welcome this new addition, and others who likely won't be patrons. But, regardless of how you feel
about it, it is a sign of the exciting growth on the East side of San JosÚ.
A battle is brewing in Curridabat between the two supermarket giants, Walmart/Hipermas and Automercado. Automercado recently completed
a large, new store just up the road (along the "old road" to Tres Rios) from the Curridabat Walmart/Hipermas. There is also a Subway, LibrerÝa
Internacional and cafe at that location.
Walmart, which already exists in Curridabat (across from Momentum Pinares), is reportedly planning on building the country's first Sam's Club
in Curridabat, close to the existing Walmart. Sam's Club, a membership-based bulk shopping outlet, is similar to the PriceSmart that currently
exists in Curridabat/Zapote. The competition should be fierce!
