Pyramid Mall blackout


Added 03 December 2012


IT WAS LIGHTS OUT for the second time in weeks for vendors of Pyramid Mall on Swan Street when power to the building was lost for most of Thursday. As a result, several of the estimated 20 booths in the three-storey building  were closed by midday. Hair salons were among the businesses affected. “I packing up my things and leaving the mall and get my stuff somewhere else,” salon operator Ashley Cumberbatch told the DAILY NATION.  “People can’t take it any more. Some of my customers gone. There are people here whose hair is wet. Some I can’t start. Hers[a customer] can’t curl.” (GA)
