Manuel Coppola, Nogales International, says in an attempt to jump start retail sales in Nogales, a group of local
merchants met recently in Tubac to discuss options.  He says this
is a good first start and it’s good that merchants are talking to each other. 
But, he cautions, Mexican shoppers are still challenged by the decline in
the value of the Peso and by the delays they face in crossing the border into
the U.S.  Coppola says upgrading the Mariposa Port of Entry will help alleviate these delays.
