She has several years of experience in the business and this has made her very familiar with sales which enables her to obtain the best profits. The store is located in María's home in an area that has heavy footfall, and she has obtained a lot of customers. All of her neighbors and the locals prefer her because she always has what they need with quality products, good prices and excellent service.
