BUSINESS BYTE: Fine Foods opens new “Best Price” Retail Outlet

 Fine Foods is excited to announce the opening of its newest retail location, “Best Price”.  Best Price is located in the former Save a lot building on River Bank next to KFC. In Best Price you will find your favorite household and hardware items from J.E.Nassief, great brands from Fine Foods, and some of the best priced grocery items you know from Save a lot.

Although the business was severely affected by Hurricane Maria, Fine Foods has injected millions of dollars to regain operations, and while we are still a work in progress we continue to see improvements every day. We have listened to the voices of our loyal Save a Lot customers to reopen and continue to offer great value, through quality, service and price.

Mathilda Dejean, General Manager of Fine Foods Retail shared, “Reopening our retail outlet where people continue to save a lot, ‘Best Price’ embodies our objective in being a provider of quality products and services in Dominica.  It is also an exciting moment for management and staff to regain operations to some sort of normalcy. Our aim is also to be a resilient business to support economic development by bringing diverse job opportunities to the island. Fine Foods will continue to operate in the former Hara location as well.  Over the next couple weeks, be on the lookout for weekly improvements and for your favorite items returning to the shelves.  Stay tuned for Save a lot Supermarket to be coming back even better, bigger, in a new location very soon.

Best Price – where people ‘save a lot’! Come check it out and watch it get better and better.

    So basically you no longer have the “savealot” franchise so you are now hoping to build your brand around the old one piggy backing on the name recognition by encouraging people to come to “Best Price – where people ‘save a lot’! Come check it out and watch it get better and better.”

    Zero Customer Aquisition Costs

    Zero Franchise Fees

    Wow genius

      I suspect reading or a firm grasp of the English language is not your strength. There is a line indicating that save a lot will reopen in the next few weeks. You should embrace the fact that he is creating new businesses to offer new jobs in our current state of affairs in Dominica.

        :lol: :lol: love your opening line lol. My sentiments exactly. People need to stop skipping words when they’re reading. It’s like the different denominations selecting parts of the bible to suit their purpose.

        The article does not say at all thatSave a Lot will recommence business. It says that Fine Foods will restart under the Best Price label in the “former” Save a Lot premises. I applaud Karl Nassief and his efforts but it is clear that Save a Lot is no more but that his Fine Foods company has joined forces with his dad’s business, J. Nassief. That is the way I read this anyway and that makes sense to me. Will Fine Foods still carry Waitrose merchandise because J. Nassief is known for cheap stuff.

    Good for our Dominica! Dear people let us continue to give thanks to God for everything positive that is happening in our country and for us, her people. Let us learn how to put negatives things out of mind; it is good for no one; especially those who are coming after–we need to lead them into the Light, where hope is beaming bright; darkness is very, very, very bad for the mind; no one needs it.
