Went to the new Jumbo last evening. Lots of things there. From my perspective the quality of hardware and sporting goods and books is not as good as other large stores in Santiago and prices are the same. I would have thought prices would have been much lower to draw people to this clean store. Grocery section is the same and prices are the same as other stores. Not such a Jumbo deal.
