DUTY FREE CARIBBEAN HOLDINGS, parent company of Cave Shepherd, is trying its best to hold strain amid all the increased costs.

Chief operating officer David Pietrzak said the retail store operator had only raised prices when “absolutely necessary”.

“There has been a big outcry in other retail establishments but we have tried not to raise our prices. We haven’t been on that bandwagon and have taken the stance where, unless it is absolutely necessary, we will not raise our prices,” he said.
