Vendors moved

VENDORS PLYING THEIR trade in front of City Centre Mall, Bridgetown, have seemingly run out of luck.

However, the Barbados Association of Retailers, Vendors and Entrepreneurs (BARVEN) is strongly opposing the decision of City Centre management to remove vendors from its premises, about two months after the new branch of Lucky Horseshoe opened there.

A fired up Robert Maloney, BARVEN’s roving communications officer, called the DAILY NATION to the area yesterday to show how vendors were now set up across the street on the outskirts of St Mary’s Church and on the nearby kerb. He said the situation was intolerable.

“This is putting people out in the road,” he said. “Vendors should be accommodated here; I’m not saying a hundred, but at least a few. They could have issued a letter and see how we could come to a balanced solution. Instead, they have moved the vendors to cause more problems as the next thing will be the church asking them to move.” (CA)
