MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's Wal-Mart de Mexico <WALMEX.MX> said on Monday that sales at its Mexican stores open at least a year rose 10.8 percent in October, compared to the same month a year prior.

At the end of last month, the company reported a surge in third-quarter net profit, helped by stronger sales and a divestment of a clothing chain.
