FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA — AML Foods Limited announced yesterday that it has signed a long-term lease, secured for up to 30 years, to reopen Solomon’s Freeport on York Street in Downtown Freeport.
The location that previously housed Winn Dixie will be used to relocate Solomon’s Freeport on Queen’s Highway, which was damaged during Hurricane Dorian.
Gavin Watchorn, president & CEO of AML Foods Limited, explained: “Solomon’s Freeport sustained extensive damages and losses due to Hurricane Dorian, but our commitment to the Grand Bahama community never wavered; it was always our intention to reopen the store that serviced Grand Bahamians for almost 20 years.
“We were working on the plans and details throughout COVID-19 and we are now ready to move ahead with what we feel is a ‘great fit’ for both Grand Bahama and our company”.
Establishing a network of smaller neighborhood food stores is a key element in AML’s expansion strategy that aims to drive group-wide sales to $250 million or more by 2030.
