Bodega Aurrera is a Mexican discount-store owned by American discount chain Walmart. The chain was first established in 1970 in Mexico City. Though every Aurrerá store was converted into Walmart, both Aurrerá and Bodega Aurrera names survived, the first as a product brand and the latter as a store.
In Mexico, the Arango brothers, Jerónimo, Placido and Manuel, founded the stores Aurrera thinking in a supermarket model, with household items and clothing at cheaper prices. Aurrera in Basque means “Come on” .
1958: Opens the first store Aurrera, with the branche Bolívar.
