New Paints Plus in St Peter
A bigger branch of Paints Plus Inc. was opened earlier this month, relocated from Chapel Street, St Peter, where it had been for the past eight years. The new location for this automotive paint store is the Speightstown Bypass Road, St Peter, and managing director Roger Smith said that the company now has a bigger store with a “large car park”.
He explained that the north of the island was seen as a growing segment and as a result, “we decided we should come now and open a bigger branch with more products”. “We’re now in partnership with Carter’s Fisherman’s Corner and we carry products from them,” said Smith.The company official explained that the business would continue to expand its product base and he was confident that the new location would be a success despite the economic downturn. “We have to find ways to survive, we are very optimistic,” he said.
