    Mexico’s Gigante, Office Depot to enter Colombia
    MONTERREY,
    Mexico, Dec 08 – Mexican retailer Gigante on Monday said it had agreed
    with its U.S. partner Office Depot Inc to expand their Latin American
    joint venture into Colombia.Gigante said the expansion into the South
    American country would be funded by the joint venture it has with its
    U.S. partner.

    Company officials were not available for further comment.
    Gigante’s
    $430 million bid to buy Office Depot’s 50 percent stake in the joint
    venture in Mexico was rejected by the U.S. office supply giant in
    October and both companies said they would look for alternatives to
    expand in the region.Gigante also operates stores including consumer
    electronics retailer RadioShack Corp  in Mexico.
