Beginning Friday, till Sunday, shoppers will be able to buy more for less in at least 70 confirmed business places in Roseau, as the 3rd annual Shop Dominica kicks off.

The initiative is spearheaded by Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association, Discover Dominica Authority (DDA), Dominica Manufacturer’s Association (DMA) and coordinated by the Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce (DAIC).

Speaking to DNO, President of the Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce (DAIC) Robert Tonge said over 70 companies are on board so far and others are still signing up to be part of the event.

“Things are shaping up quite fine for Shop Dominica there are a lot of companies on board at this time,” he said, adding that up to Friday, companies were still signing up.

He said the initiative offers a great opportunity for businesses to increase sales.

“It’s going to be a great opportunity for the businesses to increase their sales and also for the patrons to get great discounts,” he stated mentioning that although some companies are not taking part, they too are providing discounts.

Tonge noted that in the past, the event has been very successful for businesses.

“In the past companies have increased their sales as high as 20 percent on those days,” Tonge noted. “It is definitely an opportunity and hopefully going forward we can do some more promotions and make it bigger and better.”

The event is also geared at increasing visitor arrival and visitor spending in Dominica.
