ShopSmart has closed two of its six locations.
Closed are its branches at Cheapside in the City and Wildey, St Michael.
Referring to the COVID-19 global pandemic, management sighted the effects of the “unprecedented situation”.
The statement reads: “As we try to navigate this new world order and enter unchartered waters of social distancing, we have decided to close our Cheapside and Wildey locations, effective immediately.”
The proprietors said they will now focus on their online service which will give customers “new shopping options”.
“Over the coming weeks, we will also introduce changes to our systems and a new online platform,” the statement said.
The membership based shopping complex has also suspended membership renewal until June 1, 2022, giving members a two year ease.
The business said it was reaching out to its membership at this time and declared that “our hearts go out to anyone who has been impacted by the virus directly or indirectly.”
ShopSmart’s other four locations at Speighstown, Worthing, Six roads and Holder’s Hill locations remain open. (IMC)
