International franchise in St Kitts – Nevis to close its doors next-week

By Caribbean News Global contributor fav

BASSETERRE, St Kitts – Three days after the leader of the opposition, Dr Denzil L Douglas told listeners to his weekly radio programme that Electrofab on the C A Paul Southwell industrial park is closing down in a few months, there is confirmation that a fast-food outlet in Basseterre has succumbed the same fate.

On Friday, Freedom 106.5 FM reported that it has confirmed that Subway located on the corner of Victoria Road and Cayon Street will be going out of business.

“After more than ten years of operations in St Kitts, the franchise will close its doors on October 16. The owner did not go into detail about the reasons for the closure but thanked customers for their patronage over the years.”

Meanwhile, Dr Douglas summarized that as many as 98 persons would be out of work when Electrofab (St Kitts) Limited the oldest manufacturing plant in St Kitts and Nevis suppliers of resolvers for the robotics industry will cease operations.

Dr Douglas expressed concern that most of the workers are single young women who are heads of households and it would lead to an increase in unemployment and poverty.

This comes on the heels of the closure of Lutron Liamuigua in March of this year – claims to disenfranchise of overseas nationals – questionable economic growth – healthcare concerns – Sewage overflows at J N France General Hospital – mould in schools – discussion on ways to end “corruption and widespread money laundering”  – crime and gangs – concerns at the Old Road, Bay project considered “irresponsible, reckless and hypocritical”  – payments to Washington lobbyist, etc.

General elections in St Kitts and Nevis is expected soon, but not later than August 2020.
