However, many Mexican local residents favor OXXO being here because, amongst other things (wrongly or rightly), it saves transportation cost and travel time to other OXXOs to pay bills and to receive and send $. Many have to do this by bus so for them OXXO here is a plus and they will be very hard/impossible to dissuade from using this OXXO. I believe this would be an uphill battle that will create division (comfortableness), seeing that it is mostly us, expats and a few locals (and store owners), against a, I guess and sad to say, majority.
Since I doubt that we can rid ourselves of that monstrosity as a whole, I suggest that we focus on the items mentioned by Michele P. and try to contain the lighting, environmental effect and store hours and appeal to the locals on these issues without alienating them because, unfortunately, that store is here to stay.
Also, hopefully we can inform people on the need to support our local businesses for the economic health of our community which impacts us all and the preference of consuming natural, live products.
Thank you Anneli and all who will help contain this creature. Put me on the list. I think we can prevail by writing, boycotting and talking respectfully to our neighbors of our objections. Perhaps we can help induce the idea of the need for planning a LM future to the powers that be. Today was OXXO, what will tomorrow bring? Respectfully, Cruz
