Starting their business over twenty-five years ago, SINSA began its foothold in Nicaragua as a small family owned and operated hardware retailer. It has since experienced incredible growth evolving its presence nationwide into large format stores successfully bringing high quality brands and inventory to the local markets. SINSA has achieved its success by closely focusing on the specific needs of its customers and making it easy for them to access and purchase the supplies they require for their projects. With the launch of ‘Evolution’ to better support its scalability, SINSA is continuing its quest to deliver a superior customer experience by bringing the right inventory to the right place at the right time for its customers.
