Vendors want better facilities


Share post:

When wayside vendors who operated outside the Cheapside Market were moved to a temporary spot about 100 metres away around 2006, the understanding was that the dislocation would last for three months.

Almost a decade later vendors are still plying their trade from the collection of unsightly makeshift stalls, and president of Barbados Association of Retailers, Vendors and Entrepreneurs (BARVEN), Alister Alexander, wants to know if the promise will ever be kept or if they have been forgotten.

He told the Sunday Sun yesterday he understood the initial makeshift construction was due to the fact that it was intended to be short-lived.

Please read the full story in today’s Sunday Sun, or in the eNATION edition.
