  • The WONG was terrible WRONG selling their company to Chilean investors. Wong represented until yesterday a symbol of Peruvian pride and a success story of Erasmo Wong, who worked their way from owning the little corner store until becoming the biggest supermarket chain in Peru. Chilean business still represent a threat to Peruvian people’s interest and national security.
