Eastlanders is easily one of Barbados’ best kept secrets.

Tucked away in the quiet neighbourhood of Adam’s Castle, in Christ Church, the business is operated by proprietor Gerald Bryan.

Beginning over 20 years ago, it had its start in the shoe industry in retailing, then branched into repairing and finally into manufacturing.

Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, there was a break in manufacturing but operations restarted in May of this year.

Sitting behind his desk, Bryan took a break from customising a pair of shoes to talk about his business – the ups and downs, the highs and the lows, as well as his major hang-up with being an entrepreneur.

Please read the full story in today’s Sunday Sun, or in the eNATION edition.
