S-Mart boasts 84 outlets in major locations including Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Monterrey, Reynosa, Nuevo Laredo and Matamoros.

S-mart’s success started when Don Jesús Muñoz Pérez, opened his first La Unión store in El Paso, Texas in 1935. Enrique Muñoz, his son, expanded the firm. In 1997, S-Mart became the first chain of self-service stores in the entire Mexican Republic to offer 24 hour opening, followed by the first State-of-the-art Distribution Center in Ciudad Juárez, probably one of the largest, most efficient and avant-garde grocery hubs in Mexico!
