Coss Cutters chain opens first store in Guyana
Local supermarket chain, Coss Cutters, has opened its doors in Guyana.
The grocery, which began operations at Farm, East Bank, Demerara on Friday, has promised its Guyanese customers that it will offer goods at competitive prices with excellent customer service.
CEO Anil Ally stated that the opening is the first major venture outside of Trinidad and Tobago.
“As you can see, the equipment installed is state of the art. Everything here is new. I can say the cost is plenty. I average that we spent well over $500M. It is a significant investment.
“We did a lot of market research; we saw what was needed in the community and we moved forward. This is what we know best. We have been in the supermarket business for well over 31 years.”
Guyana's Minister of Business, Haimraj Rajkumar, expressed contentment with the fact that the brand had enough confidence to invest in the country, given its stable economy. He added that the supermarket presents another excellent opportunity for local producers to expand their sales.
Coss Cutters started as a simple retail operation in Trinidad 26 years ago and has evolved into four branches, including one in Tobago and now one in Guyana.
