CRITICS OF TRINIDADIAN incursion into the Barbados business arena have been told to stop complaining and “let us get on with expanding and growing the economy”. Issuing the admonishment  at the official opening the fifth store in the Massy chain this morning, Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Donville Inniss  said whatever the criticisms  about “Massy, nationality, owners and politics”, the reality was that the Trinidadian conglomerate was investing in Barbados’ economy and people. “Those who had a chance to do something about ownership structure and nationality and did nothing about it, ought not now to be complaining” Inniss said. The new Massy Stores Supermarket, Sky Mall covers over 20 000 square feet of retail space and employs 130 full time and part time staff. Managing director of Massy Stores Barbados Limited,Neville Brewster said it forms part of the ongoing plans for the Massy brand on the Barbados landscape. (GC)
