    Walmart has a 5000 btu window air conditioner on sale for $99 in the USA!
    Do you actually think those prices will come to theDR?
    Price Mart is here,and their prices "SUCK"!
    Their only advantage is that they have some quality American products not available in other stores in the DR,but their prices on those items,"SUCK" more!

    La Sirena was born during late 80s when the orinal stores Galerias Domino / Roman Ramos (SD) and Luis Ramos (Santiago) se fundieron dando origen a lo que hoy conocemos como La Sirena SA.

    Enough to understand that you do not wish to see US based businesses in the DR.

    Any word on Walmart actually acquiring La Sirena from Grupo Ramos?
    I cant seem to find an actual article in a Dominican newspaper that states this, anyone have any news?

    Funny you should ask:

    SANTO DOMINGO. - La Sirena, a supermarket and department store chain operating in various cities, has been sold to the U.S.’ biggest retailer Wal-Mart, for more than US$800.0 million.
    Quoting sources close to the deal, elnuevodiario.com.do reports that the chain owned by the Grupo Ramos has been at the center of persistent rumors, that the deal is nearly concluded. “We are aware of it, but we can’t comment anything about it.”
    It said the formal transaction was slated for 16 August, but postponed for another date, possibly announced in the coming days. “Some say it will be Saturday, August 25.”
    The deal, the outlet reports, doesn’t include Pola, the country’s biggest supermarket chain.
    The Ramos group of companies is among the country’s biggest employers, second only to the Popular Financial Group.
    There are 21 La Sirena stores nationwide, 13 of which are located in greater Santo Domingo.
