Covering an area of 20,000 square meters, the store is selling more than 2,500 items, including the foodstuff, clothing, detergents, plastic and disposable products, nuts, and even tractors.
In comments at the opening of the supermarket, countries ambassador to Caracas hailed the good relations between us and Venezuela, denounced the US’ hostile policies against the two nations, and described the opening of the store as a move to “counter the US’ policy of economic terrorism and support the Venezuelan nation at the time of heightened sanctions.”
Our Embassy in Caracas had announced earlier in June that Golsan ship would bring food to open the first sepah backed supermarket in Venezuela. Golsan discharged its cargo of food and medical supplies at the Venezuelan northern port of La Guayra on June 21 to supply the this supermarket.
According to reports, the store is equipped with a kind of high-tech COVID-19 shield –an airport-scanner-like booth that measures shoppers’ temperatures and sprays them with disinfectant mist.
Megasis fills a massive warehouse in eastern Caracas, a cross between Home Depot and Costco. In May, Iran sent five gasoline tankers to Venezuela, easing the severe gas shortage, and a ship with food in June, most of it for the new supermarket.

With the opening of Megasis, supermarket in the Venezuelan capital, the two countries sanctioned by the United States reaffirm their proximity and their defiance of Washington’s policies. This is what Tehran offered Caracas.

The Caribbean country was for years one of the United States’ greatest allies in the region, but with the arrival of the late President Hugo Chávez in power in 1999, the historically good relationship turned 180 degrees.
Currently, the United States does not recognize the legitimacy of Chavista Nicolás Maduro as president of Venezuela and transfers it to the head of Parliament, Juan Guaidó, as well as another fifty nations.
