Meet Your Chilean Buyer

The buyer is one of the largest home improvement stores chains with shops in Chile, Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay and Brazil and could be your way into the Latin American market. This is an attractive offer for sellers that are new to LATAM or just considering international trade as a way to test the waters.

  • Tools* (tool for electricians, industrial tools, more specialised and innovative tools, etc.)
  • Automobile accessories (they work with everything except spare parts, oils and paints )
  • Kitchen Items (designer things to cook and products for the specialist, no home appliances)
  • Garden (tools, fake plants, products for pets, orchard, compost bin, etc.
