The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Au­gust 11th, 2015 marks a sig­nif­i­cant and mo­men­tous day for Uni­comer (Saint Lu­cia) Lim­ited as it marks the com­mence­ment of con­struc­tion of the Courts mega­s­tore in Marisule.

A sod turn­ing cer­e­mony was held to mark the start of con­struc­tion on the pro­ject which will trans­form the com­pet­i­tive land­scape in Saint Lu­cia and bring a new and ex­cit­ing re­tail ex­pe­ri­ence to the peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia. In at­ten­dance at the cer­e­mony were dig­ni­taries in­clud­ing the Prime Min­is­ter of Saint Lu­cia and Min­is­ter for Fi­nance and Eco­nomic Af­fairs, The Honourable Dr Kenny D. An­thony, The Min­is­ter for In­fra­struc­ture, Port Ser­vices and Trans­port, The Honourable Philip J. Pierre and The Min­is­ter for Com­merce, Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment In­vest­ment and Con­sumer Af­fairs, The Honourable Emma Hip­polyte. Also in at­ten­dance were dig­ni­taries from Courts to in­clude the Uni­comer Group Vice chair­man and Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent, Mr Guillermo Si­man, the Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor for Uni­comer Caribbean/USA, Mr Mario Guer­rero, and the Uni­comer OECS Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Mr Er­rol Le Blanc.

The com­pany’s OECS Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Mr Er­rol Le Blanc, in his ad­dress to the gath­ered said, “For our cus­tomers, this new store will put us in a po­si­tion to bet­ter serve YOU. As a com­ple­ment to our ex­ist­ing Courts stores, this new Mega Store will of­fer YOU more choice from a wider va­ri­ety of prod­ucts, ex­pertly dis­played. It will bring YOU first class am­bi­ence and a su­pe­rior shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence. Here, a num­ber of in­ter­na­tional brands of fur­ni­ture such as Ash­ley and Sauder will be fea­tured along­side our qual­ity lo­cal­lypro­duced fur­ni­ture, Smart Energy prod­ucts, and the widest range of the world’s best brands of elec­tron­ics and small and large ap­pli­ances to be found in Saint Lu­cia.”

Also com­ment­ing on the pro­ject was the Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor for Uni­comer Caribbean/ USA, Mr Mario Guer­rero. “In Saint Lu­cia we con­tinue to find ways to im­prove our ser­vice to our cus­tomers. In Fe­bru­ary 2014, we opened an ul­tra-mod­ern, 36,000 square foot dis­tri­bu­tion cen­tre, boast­ing 8 load­ing bays. This al­lowed for greater ef­fi­ciency in our Lo­gis­tics and Dis­tri­bu­tion oper­a­tions, re­sult­ing in an im­proved level of ser­vice to our cus­tomers.

“The launch of this pro­ject also demon­strates our con­fi­dence in the Saint Lu­cia econ­omy and Uni­comer’s con­tin­ued com­mit­ment to con­tribut­ing to the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try. We have en­joyed the sup­port of the gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia for over thirty years, through good times and bad, and this is one way in which we can re­pay all of you.”

The Prime Min­is­ter, Honourable Dr Kenny D. An­thony con­grat­u­lated the com­pany on this mile­stone. He thanked the com­pany’s di­rec­tors for in­vest­ing in the coun­try which is also a sig­nal of the con­fi­dence which Courts has in the gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia.

The Courts mega­s­tore at Marisule prom­ises to be a game changer in the Saint Lu­cian land­scape as many val­ued cus­tomers await it in ea­ger an­tic­i­pa­tion. Twelve months from now all hope to re­con­vene to celebrate with Saint Lu­cia, with the grand open­ing of a new, mod­ern, en­er­gy­ef­fi­cient fa­cil­ity.
