American Expo opens in San Fernando
The Rig Compound, Gulf View.
A new shopping experience has landed in Gulf View.
The Anand Low Price Group of Companies (ALPG) today opened the second branch of American Expo – a shopping experience designed to give customers access to their favourite American retail outlets.
American Expo’s second location will open at 10am today on The Rig Compound in Gulf View, San Fernando.
Among the items on offer will be clothing, accessories, cosmetics, toys and more from retailers like JCPenny, Macys, Target, Walmart, TJMaxx and others.
ALPG opened the first branch of American Expo in South Haven Shopping Centre, Debe, in June 2020 when, with the borders closed, Trinbagonians needed an alternative means to get access to the American brands they could normally purchase when travelling abroad.
Directors Nicholas and Chelsea Ramnarine-Singh said the response to the first store has been overwhelmingly positive.
“For now we are located only in South Trinidad, but have had customers visiting our first store at South Haven Shopping Centre, Debe from all over the country. We forecast the same happening on an even greater scale with this new location in San Fernando. We plan to expand to different locations throughout the nation and region,” they said.
To commemorate the opening of the new branch, American Expo will be hosting a 50% off sale from September 23 – 27 at both the Gulf View and South Haven locations.
Both stores are stocked with more than 200,000 items and, uniquely, each location carries different items.
The two branches are open seven days a week, from 10am to 8pm.
