AML Foods Limited celebrates Exuma Markets anniversary and official grand opening – Eye Witness News

Nassau, The Bahamas — Exuma Markets celebrated its first wedding anniversary and official grand opening last week.

Parliamentary Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism, Investment and Aviation and John Pinder, Parliamentarian of Central and South Abaco, attended and cut the ribbon to celebrate the special day.

AML purchased the Georgetown store last May.

It continues to build on a solid foundation established by the original owner, the Mins family, who ran the store for over 30 years.

Over the past year, there have been many significant changes in places that have had a positive impact.

AML Foods invests $ 300,000 in store remodeling, new point-of-sale systems, cash registers, front-end installations, new flooring and lighting installations, air conditioning upgrades, and increased warehouse capacity to accommodate more storage Did.

The store operates in Solomon’s neighborhood format, but has not been renamed.

“Exuma Markets is a symbol of this community and for decades we wanted to maintain the tradition of the place’s name and a direct connection to the island,” said Gavin Watchorn, CEO and President of AML Foods. I am.

“Later this year, we will begin replacing dairy coolers and install new 24-foot refrigeration doors to increase capacity and variety in the dairy sector.

“Overall, we plan to invest nearly $ 500,000 in refurbishment.”

After taking over the business, Exuma Markets increased the arrival of fresh produce and dairy products on the island and added over 2,000 new items to its assortment.

Customers can also order from New Providence’s Fresh Market and Costlight and deliver the goods for pick-up or delivery.

Even more exciting was the launch of a loyalty program on the island.

Exuma customers can sign up for “My Solomon’s Smart Rewards” to earn and redeem points when shopping at Exuma Markets, New Providence or Solomon in Grand Bahama or Fresh Market in Solomon.

Watchorn further stated that AML Foods is working on Exuma Island and believes it will have a positive impact on the communities in which they serve.

AML donated approximately $ 25,000 to local groups and charities during the first year. To commemorate this opportunity, we held a children’s Domino’s Pizza party at Georgetown Elementary School and an outstanding learning school.

Watchorn has announced that it will launch e-commerce from the store later this year, thanks to the community’s support, feedback and suggestions.

He states: “We will continue to grow on Exuma Island, introduce new services to the island and work with key stakeholders to ensure that we remain a true corporate partner.”

At the ceremony, Dino Duncom, a longtime resident of Exuma with extensive experience in the grocery retail industry, was announced as the new store manager.

Watchorn said: “It is the company’s intention to ensure that the local team is well trained and ready to take on an increased responsibility.”

The entire Exuma community has been invited to visit the store for celebrations this weekend. From Thursday to Sunday, there are special prices for items, sampling and gifts. AML Foods Limited celebrates Exuma Markets anniversary and official grand opening – Eye Witness News
