Shoppers now have another option for early and late night shopping.

ACS and Co. Ltd on Friday launched their new 23,00 square feet grocery and household air-conditioned center in Pottersville in the former Haydens Supermarket building.

“Today marks the culmination of an idea that has materialized into this grand opening. The creation of this new location creates an opportunity for patrons to shop in an air-conditioned environment, to get an array of a variety of products available at your disposal,” Visual Merchandising Training Facilitator of the Corporate Enterprise Financial Services Ltd, Hyacinth Durand-Ducreay said.

Managing Director of the company, Julius Timothy said the opening was in fond memory of Mr. Hayden Thomas.

“Mr. Hayden Thomas, who pioneered self-service operations in Pottersville…Mr. Hayden Thomas has since moved on and now ACS is taking over the Pottersville operations.”

He told customers that they should expect the best practices experienced at the other two locations, in High Street and King George V Street.

“For instance, we must tell you that we pride ourselves in the best prices in Dominica. We have best prices in Dominica and we’re bringing that to the Pottersville area. Now we’re going to bring our new products to Pottersville.”

Timothy also mentioned that they will be offering new frozen products at all their locations which include a soup mix, with a combination of local ingredients and peeled dasheen also potato and breadfruit flour and a new liquor.

General Manager of ACS, Dexter Ducreay, urged the new staff to do a good job and ensure that customer service is at its highest like the other locations.

The Pottersville center will be managed by Ethlyn Charles, who began with the company some 10 years ago first as a cashier, and subsequently promoted to the post of supervisor.

The new center was blessed by Monsignor Eustace Thomas.

      Agreed it’s appalling and can really do with an overhaul….

    I love DNO but of late, especially since after the massive DDoS attack of July 2015, which knocked them out of business for two days, they have become a “beth media” and scared of putting out pertinent information that involves Dominica, especially as it pertains to the government and their corruption. If Dominicans have to know anything that may affect them, they must surf the internet because if they have to depend on DNO, DBS, Kairi, and others, they sure will perish in the river called ignorance.

    “Today marks the culmination of an idea that has materialized into this grand opening<<<<<<News Article

    Yes that is what it always has to be "an idea" produced through a mind that fruitful and that fruit of the mind comes forth into complete display–that is what has happened here

    This is good news to read and I pray that this idea which has been materialized will continue to grow, not only in that form , but in many other forms–which will create jobs for those who are willing and able to work, and to be the bread winner for their families–not dependence on anyone else to provide them with food, shelter. and clothing–God's Will be done.

    Bravo Julius .Job well done. Your prices are really good at all your shipping centers. The others should take a page from your book where prices are concern. Keep up the good work

    Mr Timothy you were a good business man before you got into politics got rail roaded after you were thrust in the ministry of health. Why did you not get into health business after you got voted out!? It is simply because it is not your strength. Now you back to what you do best and I have no doubt you will be successful. What I do not understand is why in Gods name a bright man like you allowed yourself to be marginalized for so long. Did you not see that the cabinet shuffle was to consolidate power by making you guys weak and out of place. Your business endeavors will do more for the country than your 25 yrs in politics. I wish you well. Astaphans and nassif need competition.

    Managing Director of A.C.Shillingford, Mr. Timothy should thank the people of the constituency of Goodwill for releasing him from under the clutches of Skeritt. I never understood why an intelligent and talented man like Timothy stayed so long being treated like a nobody under Skeritt. However, like the saying goes , never late then never.
