Las Americas blazed the border trail in San Ysidro store enterprises are found. Camino de la Playa stores attract San DIegans and Mexicans with a sense for fashion and a taste for food with a reptuation to its walking shop lines. West and east, the international shopping gateway's sides, stand ready to wlecome the new enterprise border settlers.
Window rows open for original business set ups cross the far mall grounds in the west's The Plaza. The Ms Clothing shop sits pretty one empty store front from Fashion Q. A walk across the parking lot from the recently opened beauty shop, the hard to ignore Ultra, leads to a front camino building built near an entrance that waits for San DIegans with a ground plan to convert the empty rooms into dressed up shopping still lifes.
Free enterprise turns border trips into trade agreement opportunities that are sized up to strike the right value on give and take put together on demand.
Hard to find main street store fronts, loaded with goods to give, recently show up in the open border, without an end in sight. Drivers who take the time to look south, near the grand sized Mexican flag, will see the next big enterprise deal is coming. The Outlets shopping center will take up the other side on the Las Americas stop in plaza. According to plan, San Ysidro's power in the store customer market will thrive. Border spending has no planned disappointments.
Location makes enterprise openings a usual request. Morning and evening processions north and south across the U.S.-Mexico border bring in traffic tides to the streets of the city. Not all the drivers from San Diego and Tijuana just hang out in traffic tied up. Shopping is a luxury off the farthests southern branches of the I-5 and I-805 freeways. One worth repeating.
Outlets get their breaks one by one in the international gateway on the Camino de la Playa strip. Groundwork planned this year for the east lot conversion work, work that will go on just across the freeway crossing from the San Ysidro border station construction, still remains an undone job in the plaza mall deal. A store face at The Outlets has its land to show up on next year.
