Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin today opened an Ashley Furniture
Homestore outlet and expressed the hope it generates more business
interest in Guyana.
“Self-interest drives business, businesses create opportunities for
other businesses; the more businesses operating in Guyana the more
opportunity there are to do business in Guyana,” Minister Gaskin said.
The Minister reiterated that Guyana is an ideal and profitable place
to conduct business. The Ashley Homestore is located in the Giftland
Mall, Turkeyen, East Coast Demerara.
The furniture store is another flagship for Unicomer Group which
already comprises Courts, Lucky Dollar and Radio Shack. Managing
Director, Clyde de Haas said it is a proud moment for Unicomer.
“The interest of our customers in the Ashley products was an
encouragement to offer the full-fledged Ashley experience that you can
only get at Ashley Homestore,” de Haas noted.
Ashley’s has made a big investment in the Homestore concept,
representative Jesus Dacal noted.
“Our goal is to develop a strong relationship with our global retail
partners to help make them successful in managing the Ashley Homestore
brand. Ashley looks forward to a bright future in Guyana,” Dacal said.
