FOLLOWING a multimillion-dollar injection by the Massy Group of Companies into the creation of its fifth supermarket in Barbados, Commerce and Small Business Minister Donville Inniss is telling Barbadians who criticise the involvement of the Trinidadian-based entity in the local economy “to shut up and get on with the people’s business”.
?Inniss said whatever criticism may be levelled at foreign entities like Massy for their rapid expansion in Barbados, the “simple reality” was that the CARICOM neighbour was making a significant investment into Barbados’ economy and Barbadians.
“It is a manifestation of the continuing faith that the Massy Group of Companies has in the Barbadian economy,” he said while opening the Massy supermarket at Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall, yesterday.
Approximately $6 million has been spent on the infrastructure of the new supermarket which occupies over 20 000 square feet of retail space in the Sky Mall, while another $4 million was invested in purchases from local distributors, manufacturers and farmers to merchandise the store.
There are 130 employees.
