A new store selling bulk and speciality items has opened up in St David’s.

Southside Discount will be a tenant of the Bermuda Land Development Company Ltd.

The retail store is located at the corner of Southside and Stocks roads, adjacent to the Southside Police Station.

“Southside Discount is the latest evidence of our ongoing efforts to attract new tenants to the area,” said Francis Mussenden, BLDC’s chief executive officer. “This is an important addition, expanding retail services to meet the needs of the community.”

Maria DeMello, whose family owns and operates the store, previously called Fresh N’ New and located at Blue Hole Hill, said: “We are very excited about the new location.

“We chose Southside because we’ve always liked the area, and many of our clients are East Enders.”

BLDC and the DeMellos worked together to refurbish the store’s interior. The building’s façade is also currently being upgraded by BLDC.

Southside Discount will offer a range of bulk and speciality items, including paper and cleaning products, foods and holiday gifts.

Cash and credit will be accepted at the store, which will be open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 7pm.

Every Monday is special discount day where patrons will receive a 10 per cent discount on cash purchases and 8 per cent on credit card purchases.
