According to Valor Econômico newspaper, Lojas Americanas will have seven new distribution centers by 2022. The information was given by the company’s president, Miguel Gutierrez, in a meeting with investors in Rio de Janeiro.

The centers will serve not only the physical Americanas stores, but the entire structure of B2W, which includes Americanas.com and Submarino, and the group’s fintech Ame Digital, which offers digital wallet and online financial services.
