Expanded Machetazo at Playa Coronado, Panamá as if it wasn’t large enough, haha. Now open on the second floor of El Machetazo is a furniture and home decor section already stocked with hundreds of items. If you are familiar with the Village Shopping in Playa Coronado and La Teca, you may have noticed recently the construction going on in between Machetazo and La Teca. This area is now open and that whole area between the two is now El Machetazo home goods and decor area, including indoor and outdoor furniture from bar sets with stool to tables, picture frames, book cases, bedroom dressers, of course Christmas Decorations and much more. The Village Shopping Mall is directly accross the Panamerican Highway from Roberto Eisenmann Ave.
Ok, so if you are not sure what El Machetazo is, the word itself is the action of using a Machete from what we have gathered. The store itself is similar to a Super Walmart and is a 3 story mega store with just about anything you can think of from Bikinis to Huge Concert Speakers to Motorcycles to Tires to Hot Dogs and Gold Fish, they have it.
Playa Coronado, Panama is a prime example of the fast growth Panama is seeing all over the country. Just within a few minutes of Coronado we have seen at minimum 10 new shopping centers / malls being built, including the huge new Terrazas De Panamá in Coronado that we recently blogged about as well, click here for that blog which is supposed to be open before Christmas. It is quite amazing the growth taking place in this Country, it seems as though every time we drive to Panama City we notice a new mall or shopping center being constructed.
The Village Mall with Machetazo is one of many shopping centers in the Playa Coronado area that is open and booming.
We have El Rey grocery store and shopping center known as Corowalk or El Rey Plaza which was the first in the area to our knowledge a 2 story center.
Then you have the Super 99 (noventa nueve) grocery store shopping center which is called the Coronado Mall this is a 3 story mall.
Then you have Plaza Las Pergolas with Riba Smith grocery store and Novey (similar to a large ace hardware) in this 2 story shopping center.
If you have any details on growth or progress taking place in Panama, please share, we are happy to spread the word to this great community of Coronado and keep folks up to date. If you would like to contribute your own blog to our website we welcome that as well.
