Their loss is Sonora’s gain

19 May 2010

Interesting.  Since the passage of Arizona’s SB-1070, retail sales in Hermosillo, Sonora have gone up thirty percent.  Gustavo Clausen Iberri, of the Sonora Chamber of Commerce says it’s due to a boycott of Arizona purchases.  It may be, but I don’t think the boycott has really taken hold yet.  But it looks as if more and more Sonorans are saying it’s not worth the hassle of going into Arizona for shopping and are heading for Hermosillo instead.  The boycott will probably mean a much larger drop in Arizona purchases by Mexican consumers.
