  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   GT2021-0014

The COVID-19 pandemic affected the retail industry in Guatemala. Although supermarkets remained open during the crisis, the sanitary measures dictated by the government greatly impacted supermarket sales. Walmart Mexico and Central America is the largest and the leading supermarket chain in Guatemala. The main competitors for supermarkets are the open-air markets and corner stores, which have a strong presence mainly in the interior of the country and sell mostly to low-income consumers.
