Business magnate Carlos Slim is considering bringing his retail chain, Sanborns, to Manhattan. Reuters reports that the store “where shoppers can buy anything from underwear to a plate of spicy chilaquiles, a traditional dish, or even pay their phone bills” will potentially mark the latest in Slim’s stateside ventures.
Slim’s holding company, Grupo Carso, hopes that a Manhattan location will appeal not only to the area’s Hispanic population, but reach out to a wider audience as well. Slim already owns a stake in Saks and about 6.9 percent of The New York Times‘ Class A shares.
So far, no date or potential locations for the store have been set.
