about Lojas Americanas, remember that in Latin America, the term AMERICA is used mainly to describe the whole continent (yes, continental names and divisions are usually more polticial than really geologic), and S. and N. America being SUBcontinents.

All those brazilian soccer clubs named America are not named such in honor of US... and the biggest continental soccer competition, Libertadores da América, refers to guys like Simon Bolivar, and the american countries they set free were Bolivia, Peru, Equador, etc.
