After seventeen months, the new Solomon’s in downtown Grand Bahama is now open. Minister for Grand Bahama, the Hon. Ginger Moxey was on hand at the the opening. She told those in attendance, “this is a big deal for Grand Bahama Island, for Pineridge. It is a big deal because we all recognize that the relocation of Solomon’s to Downtown area will have a tremendous impact on businesses in Downtown and surrounding areas and it will also have a significant impact on transportation, service providers and most importantly our people.”

Minister Moxey commended AML Foods, the parent company of the Solomon’s brand for their dedication to Grand Bahama. “This new store, this location is embedded in our history. It is the nucleus of the island’s commerce center and it is the catalyst for the revitalization of Downtown Freeport.”

The original Solomon’s, located on Queen’s Highway was damaged by Hurricane Dorian. Chairman and Director of AML Foods, Franklyn Butler says the return of Solomon’s show the commitment of the company to Grand Bahama. “With this opening of this store, we’ve added sixty brand spanking new jobs here in Grand Bahama and now employ two hundred and fifty Grand Bahamians of which all of the management for this store are homegrown talent within the AML Foods system.”
