Galleria El Triunfo rises from the ashes posted by on January 6, 2014

The craziest store in Cancun has reopened. It was gutted by fire several months ago. It was rebuilt and now has reopened. We visited it for the first time yesterday afternoon to see what we could see. This establishment has items for sale that you never could even imagine existed, as well as many mundane things. First here is a picture I took during the fire.

The fire was raging at this point fed by crowded aisles of merchandise and exploding propane tanks….

The aisles aren’t packed like before the fire, but they are working on filling the place up….
