For SEVERAL months, persons passing by the Courts Constant Spring location might have seen the brightly coloured zinc fence, a signal that construction was taking place. Now the wait is over and, following the soft opening earlier this week, shoppers will experience the new Courts store's offerings at its grand opening on Friday, December 7.
The construction of the new Courts Constant Spring store represents the first of its kind for the retail chain in the Caribbean. There are plans to introduce the concept to other Caribbean territories in the near future. The company has operations in 10 other Caribbean countries, namely Antigua, Trinidad, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Grenada, Dominica, St Lucia, St Kitts, and St Vincent). Expanding from 25,000 to 29,000 square feet, it took a whopping US$4 million (J$364,000,000) to build the new store.
Christmas is fast approaching and Courts has plans to wow customers with a Christmas-tree lighting and carolling with the University Chorale at the location on Friday, December 7, from 5-7 p.m., as well as the grand opening ceremony on that same day.
The store features an optical department where busy shoppers can access free eye tests as they wait. The ultra-modern layout and design are sights to behold. There is a wide array of contemporary furniture, an Electric Avenue for all things digital and gadgetry, a section for solar-energy products, and, if you become tired of walking around the large showroom, just take the elevators!
The new store will also have something extra special for shoppers. Those who buy any Samsung product stand the chance of winning one of three 31.5" Samsung Smart LED TVs in a promotion that will run from December 7-31. It is called the Courts Constant Spring Smart TV Giveaway.
With some 29 stores islandwide, renovations have been done to the Savanna-la-Mar, Cross Roads and Falmouth branches.
