(Letter from management)
In the early hours of October 19, 2017, Cameo Boutique, commonly known as The Gigi Plaza Store succumbed to a blaze that gutted three business places. It is because of this unfortunate circumstance that we close our doors for good. With that said, the management would like to extend a warm than you to the people of Antigua & Barbuda.
Thank you to the customers who have patronized us over the 33 years we have been in business. We have seen children become adults, selling to grandmothers, mother and daughter.
We are forever grateful for your support and although we won’t be around to sell you medicated earrings, beauty supplies and jewelry, you will always be in our hearts and prayers as you continue your journey in life.
Thank you to our staff, past and present. It is with your help that this store has prospered. Some of you were like family and have seen this store at its best and its worst. Like all families, we may have our disagreements, but in the end we are family. Thank you for your years of service and the memories to last a lifetime.
Thank you to our fellow business people, those who have reached out to us upon hearing of the news; those who have become our friends over the years; those who have done business with us. These are the retailers, the vendors, the contractor, the wholesalers, the broker, thank you all. Times are not easy, but we hope you will continue to weather the storm.
Thank you to our friends and neighbours who have supported us during our final days. Who knew it would be our final days? Thank you to those who have reached out with kind words. You will be missed and not forgotten as we transition into a new chapter. To our neighbours who were affected by the fire, we pray that with each passing day, you will be able to rebuild. We may have been brought to our knees, but this is temporary and once more we will rise.
Thank you Antigua & Barbuda. This is not goodbye, this is see you later. And still we rise.
